In 1944, Primo Levi was deported to Auschwitz. He was 24 years old. During his stay in the camp, he began to write 'If This Is a Man', an account of the ten months he was imprisoned.
In 2020 (75 years after the liberation of Auschwitz), an actor enters a stage and faces the challenge of reliving Levi's experience, in order to try to understand (if it is even possible) what Auschwitz was and what it means for us, 21st century spectators, that such a place existed in the middle of Europe in the middle of the last century.
A journey into the darkest side of the human being and of our contemporary world.
Author: Primo Levi
