Please come along to hear poems performed by Michael Rosen offering
words of comfort & kindness to show our humanity and love for others.
Many of the poems will be from Michael's volume of poetry called
"On the Move.  Poems about Migration."
New Songs have also been composed to Michael Rosen's lyrics 
composed by Andrea Cockerton which will be premiered at the event &
performed by the DoSoCo Foundation Choir & CAP Singers

In addition there will be dance and drama performances
inspired by Michael Rosen’s words and storytelling about his 
family that were missing at the end of World War 2 and his
journey to discover they were murdered at Auschwitz.
These pieces are performed to Michael Rosen's words by Youth Elevation Dance Company with choreography by Helen Garner and music composed by Alex Cook.  Further moving pieces of physical theatre will be performed by the Cambridge Academic Partnership Drama Group with choreography led by Russell Burgees, a drama to MIchael's words telling the story of Oscar and Rachel as they were captured by the Nazis and put on a cattle truck and the contrasting drama about those who were on the same convoy but who escaped from the train.
