“In ‘Zeide Isaac’ my grandfather, a Holocaust survivor, performs a script I wrote based on his personal story. The work explicitly address the possibilities, limitations and responsibilities of testimony. The layering of narrative voices and the passage of time between the event and it’s retelling, from first hand experience to third generation, is allegorically implied in my grandfather’s passage from witness to actor.” - Alejandro Cesarco
