PERFORMANCE IN THE SMALL HALL OF THE TRADE FAIR PALACE
Concept and Stage Direction: Katharina Schmitt
Stage Design and Video: Pavel Svoboda
Cast: Lucie Trmíková
The performance is part of a series of short performances created in coproduction of the Department of the Accompanying Programme of the National Gallery as the accompanying program of the leading exhibitions in the Fair Trade Palace. Directed by Katharina Schmitt, NOT I by Samuel Beckett opens the series.
NOT I, a play by the Nobel Prize in Literature laureate Samuel Beckett takes place in total darkness, in the space, where a single ray of light illuminates the mouth of the actress 2.5 metres above the stage. The text is a fragmentary internal monologue describing several moments in the life of a woman. The main theme running through the text is the relationship between language and remembering.
Performances: 2.2.2013 and 15.3.2013
The project is funded with a grant from the Department of the Accompanying Programme of the National Gallery.
