Kindness casts a welcomed light against the dark shadow of the Holocaust.

11-year-old Daniel has escaped Nazi Germany and finds himself alone on the shores of Havana, Cuba. He meets spirited 12-year-old Paloma who has some painful secrets of her own. Through their unlikely bond, she introduces Daniel to the language, music and history of Cuban culture. However, once Cuba enters the war these two young friends are faced with some dangerous choices that will ultimately test their friendship. This production is part of The Kindness Project.

Watch the 90-minute performance followed by a lively post-show activity exploring the culture of Cuba. Recommended for ages 8+.

Sponsored by Culture Blocks, a community partnership funded by Mecklenburg County.
