Lenka Lichtenberg / Senisdream Productions The Secret Poetess of Terezin



'How can people on the brink of death experience happiness, write love poems…?' In 2017, Lenka discovered two notebooks of poems collected and sometimes written by her grandmother, then a prisoner in a WWII concentration camp in Czechoslovakia. The Canadian musician transformed her grandmother’s words into Thieves of Dreams, an ’incredibly touching, moving way to honour history’ (Q on CBC.ca), Canada's 2023 Juno Award-winning album and an internationally touring multimedia stage show. The immersive, intimate performance - now also a remarkable solo show- wins over audiences with its intensely personal yet universal narrative of love evolving and dissolving under the pressure of monumental historical events.
