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 novelFatelessness 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.
