This show weaves together a collage of kitschy dances set to 1960s breakup songs, mournful Ukrainian ballads, whimsical stop-action animation, old family photographs, delightful paintings by Susannah Anderson, and gruesome history lessons to tell Tarnawsky’s family history, the gripping tale of a family in Ukraine split apart by WWII. This show spans the range of possibilities held within the heartbreak theme, from fun and tongue-in-cheek to utterly devastating. It draws on the humor in heartbreak, the parallels between lost love and death, and the beauty in sadness.
