performed by Julian Swift-Speed (Poland)
adapted from Imre Kertész "Fatelessness”
directed by Stanislaw Otto Miedziewski
Imre Kertész is a Jewish-Hungarian author, Holocaust concentration camp survivor, and winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2002 "for writing that upholds the fragile experience of the individual against the barbaric arbitrariness of history".
The performance of Julian Swift-Speed from Rondo Slupsk Theatre is based on biographical motifs from the novel. It is a suggestive rendering of the memories of a young Hungarian Jew who survived a concentration camp.
The actor is 20 years old – almost the same age as the young Kertész 'protagonist. The performance is an attempt at a confrontation of contemporary sensibility with Holocaust.
Length: 40 minutes
