»We Keep Coming Back« is a complex, soul-baring and often very humorous performance that takes audiences deep into the genuine traumas of the post-war generations using documentary storytelling, archival video and projection design.It tells the mostly true story of an odyssey to Poland that a son (Michael Rubenfeld) and mother (Mary Berchard) – both descendants of Polish-Jewish Holocaust survivors – took while accompanied by Katka Reszke (Polish-Jewish scholar and author of »Return of the Jew«) as their guide. It is performed by Michael Rubenfeld and Mary Berchard – real-life son and mother – and Katka Reszke. »We Keep Coming Back« is deeply intimate and as beautiful as it is uncomfortable.
Performed in english.
