PAST EVENT | FATELESSNESS by Imre Kertész

 


The world premiere (performed in English) is designed to make American audiences familiar with the words of Imre Kertesz and to commemorate 2014 as the 70th anniversary of the Hungarian Holocaust. New York based Hungarian actor Adam Boncz will perform ‘Fatelessness’ a solo theatre project based on the novel of the same name by Imre Kertesz, recipient of the 2002 Nobel Prize in Literature. The book is the story of a Hungarian teenage boy who survives a passage through three WWII concentration camps. The play is a 75- minute rendition of the book, adapted verbatim by Romanian dramaturg Andras Visky and directed by Gia Forakis. Kertesz’s novel is considered one of the outstanding works of the Holocaust literature and contemporary European literature in general. Adam Boncz is the first person to have the rights to adapt the novel to the stage. The evening will be a stylized performance interweaving music, images and video from the story’s era.
