  • Join us for a unique WORD! with award winning poet, Adam Kammerling’s nationally touring - ‘Seder’ - an uncompromising interdisciplinary performance working with dance, spoken word and live music and exploring the ancient ritual of the Passover Seder.

    Adam Kammerling’s grandfather was a kinder transport evacuee who carried a great weight of personal and communal loss. Seder explores the impact on the generations that followed. From synagogue to art gallery, from Auschwitz to punk festivals, it offers the titular Passover ritual as a tool for processing intergenerational trauma. Connection, ritual and celebration are explored through the story-telling power of seder night. Jazz, klezmer and noise influences create an uncompromising and transcendent musical score.

    The piece invites the audience to experience the healing and communal properties present within the ancient ritual of the Passover Seder, with an award winning cast of multi—disciplinary artists, including Antosh Wojcik, Vasiliki Papostoulou, Ffion Campbell-Davies and Belle Ehresman and Si Rawlinson and Adam Kammerling.
