World Stage says
From the Netherlands, Hotel Modern's Kamp

"Wordless and all [Kamp] is a deeply poetic work." –The Irish Times

Hotel Modern’s masterwork, KAMP is, in every way, a performance of necessity and a daring representation of the world we live in. First shared in Toronto by World Stage in 2013, KAMP presents a single, unremarkable day in a city purpose-built for the annihilation of human life. An enormous scale model of Auschwitz fills the stage. This colossal scale model is inhabited by thousands of 8cm-tall handmade puppets that represent the prisoners and their executioners at an astonishing ratio of 1 to 10.

Filming the events with tiny cameras and setting the puppets to tasks both horrific and banal, the extraordinary artists of the Netherlands’ Hotel Modern themselves become models. Their resolution in this work is to salvage human creativity from the banality of evil and depravity. The performance is as vital today as it has ever been.
