RHINOFEST • Prop Theater • 3502 N. Elston, Chicago
Theatre Y has been invited to present a series of workshops at Rhinofest
towards the creation of FATELESSNESS:
a dance piece performed to a radio play (adapted by Andràs Visky and Adam Boncz) from the novel Fatelessness by Imre Kertész.
Kertész is a survivor of Auschwitz and Buchenwald, and the recipient of the 2002 Nobel Prize for Literature “for writing that upholds the fragile experience of the individual against the barbaric arbitrariness of history”.
Visky is a survivor of the Bărăgan, a Communist Romanian Prison Camp, where he was sent at the age of two with his mother and six siblings. He is an internationally acclaimed poet, playwright and essayist and the resident dramaturg and associate artistic director of the Hungarian Theater of Cluj.
Fatelessness will be unveiled over the next year beginning with this 6 part physical experiment, different each Sunday.
Featuring Michael Doonan (Voice) & Ben Wardell (Dance)
Directed by Melissa Lorraine
Sound Design Kimberly Sutton
Assistant Director Aileen McGroddy
Dramaturgy Dan Christmann
“She was Lo, plain Lo, in the morning, standing four feet ten in one sock.
She was Lola in slacks. She was Dolly at school.
She was Dolores on the dotted line.
But in my arms she was always Lolita.”

7:00 - 9:00 p.m.
DePaul Student Center, Room 120
2250 N. Sheffield Avenue, Chicago
The DePaul Humanities Center continues its radical re-thinking of novels
by turning its attention to Vladimir Nabokov’s classic, Lolita.
The evening begins with the world premiere of
“Young Matrix, Unknown Heart,”
adapted for the stage from Nabokov’s novel by Dan Christmann,
and performed and directed by Evan Hill and Melissa Lorraine.
The performance will then be followed by a panel conversation including author Maryse Meijer, Danielle Meijer (DePaul University), and Shari L. Savage (Ohio State University), that will investigate the various artwork used as book covers for Lolita and the complicated ways in which Lolita’s age may not really be the central moral question of the novel.
