The Thinking Heart: A Performance in Two Voices, with Cello

The Thinking Heart is a performance piece in two voices, with cello, based on the journal and letters of Etty Hillesum, a Dutch woman who lived in Amsterdam during the Nazi occupation and died in Auschwitz in 1943. The performance is an original arrangement of her journal and letters in the form of poems written by Martin Steingesser. The Maine Humanities Council awarded a grant for this piece to be performed at four locations, including the Rockland Public Library, the Bangor Public Library and the Belfast Free Library.
