MURMURS & INCANTATIONS
Murmurs & Incantations
by Dahn Hiuni
Dahn Hiuni’s moving and uplifting play is a psychologically rich tale of survival, acceptance and reconciliation. An aging performance artist who is haunted by two of the biggest horrors of the past century—the Holocaust and the AIDS epidemic. Ben Levitt’s family was wiped out in Auschwitz and Treblinka; his lover taken by the other scourge that Ben was equally powerless to control. His ghosts cannot be liberated until Ben comes to grips with his tangled emotions surrounding his grief as a two-time survivor.
Join Sextant Productions for the staging of a poignant tale that one critic called “a gentle testament to the power of art as an act of honesty, witness and survival.” (Jaime Brockway, Time Out New York)
The play won an Excellence in Playwriting award for Dahn Hiuni at the 2016 New York International Fringe Festival. Music in our new production will be composed by Academy-Award winning Yuval Ron.
