the repossessed



theatrical play | 70min | 2020








synopsis
The Repossessed draws its narrative from Djuna Barnes' 1936 novel, Nightwood, a modernist Gothic tale of love and obsession in which the boundaries of class, religion, and gender dissolve. A century since the events in the novel, we follow the spectres of Barnes’ characters through the streets of Paris. Our attention falls on what is most bodily, though still ethereal, a present gaze at a half factual, half fictionalized past.
