„Since I was a child there was this hole inside of me.
Since I was a child I was grieving –
loving that which has slipped from view
and grieving that which has not yet done so.“
by Jan Jedenak – Theatre of figural forms/ Premiere 14th of April 2023 Westflügel Leipzig
A hole, bottomless. It leads down into the depths of the human psyche, past different faces of grief. Leads down into a void that devours, a void from which springs what was thought lost. The visual and vocal reflection of human distress opens the abyss to the appearances of the uncanny. A story between the conscious and the unconscious about the empty spaces in us. A step into nothingness to resonate with the void.
