The Umbrella Foundation is a registered charity committed to telling stories that matter through the innovative use of music, theatre and other art forms.

Our first production is Driftwood The Musical. After a sell-out world premiere season in 2022, Driftwood  The Musical will return in May and June 2023! Book your tickets for the upcoming season here.

Driftwood The Musical tells the incredible story of Karl and Slawa Duldig based on their daughter Eva’s memoir DRIFTWOOD – escape and survival through art (ASP 2017).

This inspirational story of the renowned Austrian/Australian sculptor Karl Duldig and his artist/inventor wife, Slawa Horowitz-Duldig follows their lives in pre-war Vienna, Slawa’s ingenious invention of the foldable umbrella, and an incredible chain of events after miraculously escaping the Holocaust and rebuilding their careers as artists in Melbourne.

Be inspired by some of the positive reviews and testimonials.

An epic story of love, courage, survival... and foldable umbrellas.
