About the show

They are not here,
And they are not coming
There is nothing here…
There is nothing here for you
It’s just this room and you and me.

When the last person who remembers is gone, whole worlds disappear forever. In her new tour-de force solo show, the Israeli artist, writer, choreographer and performer Neta Pulvermacher explores her German-Jewish family history. Constructing a post-memory performative journey. Her work, "The Archive/The Jews Are to Blame For Everything", follows the traces to Frankfurt - once her family’s home. She conjures up fragmented narratives, voices and characters that emerge briefly, only to fade away - like memory itself. For a moment, this pursuit of traces become a living archive where documents and “exhibits” are shared and explored. Especially in these times of crisis, the question of memory and its significance for understanding our world(s) takes on a new relevance and urgency.
