Sue Casson's moving song cycle Dreams of Peace & Freedom, is at the heart of THE HUMAN'S IN THE TELLING 

a performance, film and book telling, of a family story that looks towards the twin anniversaries of

the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials (75 years) and the European Convention on Human Rights (70 years) which coincide in 2020,


In what has been a busy year of preparation, English Cabaret have been travelling to the centres of the story to film and set up a programme of commemorative performances. You can find out more about the project at the website here.


In June, The Human's in the Telling : The Podcast  was made available via socia media.

@EnglishCabaret flew the flag for Human Rights during the last week of June

as part of #FlytheFlag70, celebrating 70 years since the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights - an inspiration for the European Convention.


Inspired by artist Ai Wei Wei,

they created their own flag 'signatree'

to celebrate the ECHR's 47 member signatories.
