Northern Holland, 1943.
A bleak muddy camp in a bleak muddy landscape.
Bursting at the seams with angry worried people torn from their homes and surroundings.
And in this camp a miracle.
A cabaret performed by the very best artists in Europe.
A cabaret the courteous smiling camp commandant wouldn't miss for the world.
Just as he wouldn't miss signing off the weekly transport that sends 1000 Jews to a frightening destination in the East.
A cabaret of comedy, dance and song and in particular one dancer who catches the commandant's eye - the talented Anna Hilmann.
Will she accept his invitation and dance for him?
Is it a poisoned chalice or reason to hope?
Will it keep her and her loved-ones off the dreaded transport list?
And if it does is it a compromise worth making?
With a background based in historical fact, The Project looks at the terrible choices forced on people in a surreal world that has lost its moral compass.
