A new work by Eldad Diamant
based on a book by Judith Drigues

Anyway… what once was is no longer. There’s nothing to fix over here.’

A meditation on the concept of memory, trauma and loss as viewed from the eyes of five disparate characters – a child, a woman, a witness, an administrator and a stone. Loosely structured around the stories of the Holocaust, Fivestones explores the effect that cataclysmic events have on different layers of society, as each character tries to come to terms with an irreversible reality.

Fivestones marks a fusion between theatre, opera, improvisation, video, spoken-word and visual effects. The work’s creation stems from a book of prose poetry, written by second-generation
Israeli poet Judith Drigues. Copies of the book’s English translation will be available exclusively at the venue, following each performance.

Fivestones is a production by a group of students and graduates of the RNCM. It will be presented alongside the RNCM’s production of Ralph Vaughan Williams’ The Pilgrim’s Progress.
