NTW WALESLAB 'FROZEN' The beginnings of an idea

Some years ago I read a novel called Fugitive Pieces it follows the story of a young Polish boy who escaped the Nazis during the Second World War. He hides in a hole in the wall and witnesses the death of his parents. His sister disappears without trace.

He is discovered by an archeologist buried in earth in the middle of a wood.

For the rest of his life he is reminded…

On Wednesday I arrived in Warsaw for a Theatre Festival, I was told that someone would meet me at the Airport but there was no-one carrying that piece of paper with my name on. Oh well it's daytime and things don't feel so scary for the lone traveller when it's light.

When I do spend time on it I discover a whole world that has passed me by. I was…
