I / Fabre
Duration: 1 hour, 10 minutes
The premiere took place in 7 February 2019.
Two solos, one male and one female, based on texts by Belgian artist Jan Fabre, which were first translated into Russian and published in the Stanislavsky Electrotheatre's Theater and its Diary book series in 2018.
The hero of the first monologue, I Am Blood (2001), is in a state of exaltation, turning itself inside out, and stripping himself of all visible safeguards. The second text, I Am a Cow (2015), is dedicated to actress Isabelle Huppert and is a hymn to carnivorousness and to the golden calf as a source of supreme pleasure.
Jan Fabre is a Belgian artist, director, playwright, and choreographer. He began in the 1970s as the creator of performances, actions, and live installations. Fabre's exhibits and theatre projects have been hosted by the world's largest museums and in most important festival venues. His book I Am a Mistake (Theater and its Diary series, Stanislavsky Electrotheatre, 2018) collected poetic plays written by Fabre between 1988 and 2015, as well as his drawings.
The presentation of the book and Klim Kozinsky's first showing of readings of the plays was an event of the Territory festival in October 2018.
