Troubleyn | Jan Fabre

The Night Writer - Lithuania | NAKTIES RASYTOJAS

with Martynas Nedzinskas

Beauty: even when it creates confusion and is subversive,
it always brings a message of reconciliation!

- Jan Fabre | The Night Writer

The Night Writer is a visionary and disarming hymn to the subversive and intriguing artist Jan Fabre. His personal diaries feed into an intimate and provocative autobiography, performed on stage by the actor Martynas Nedzinskas.

It’s a journey in strong colours, from the artist’s youth to today. The audience will be engulfed in a flow of thoughts connecting day-time activities, bubbling with irresistible ideas and ambitious projects, and night-time existence, when creativity merges with fury and reflections on life, love and sex speak of the visceral energy of the body.

The text includes several pages of Fabre's personal journals and excerpts from Fabre's theatre text: The Reincarnation of God, I Am A Mistake, The Emperor of loss, The King of Plagiarism, Body, Body on the Wall, I Am Blood, History of Tears and Drugs Kept Me Alive, published in Lithuanian by Leidykla Sofoklis.
