“Kamp,” which mixes theater, music, video, sculpture and puppetry, in a 36-by-33-foot model of Auschwitz populated by 3,000 three-inch-tall figures, is scheduled for six performances this week starting on Wednesday as part of the Toy Theater Festival at St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn through June 13, 2010.
