Disquiet is a performance-based on a play by the popular contemporary Russian playwright and director Ivan Vyrypaev. The action takes place in New York, in the apartment of a famous American writer Ula Richter. An ambitious Polish journalist interviews the celebrity. This interview is of great importance: to the journalist, it can become a trampoline for his professional career in New York, while for the writer, it is a great opportunity, to tell the truth or maybe to mess with everyone and create another myth of herself. The mysterious intrigue begins when the journalist asks questions he has been warned to avoid – about the writer’s German origin, allegations of anti-Semitism, and her scandalous removal from the Nobel Prize nominees. Disquiet is a story about authors creating not only their works but also their own myth – the most specific and intense as well as the brightest and the most genuine reality. Disquiet is what people feel when they love. Disquiet is what people feel when they create. Disquiet is what people feel when they kill. This whole spectrum of contradictory feelings, which we call disquiet, is experienced by the creator, the artist. “The creation is the Creator’s disquiet at every second of creation, in every single part of this strange universe, and in every single one of us”, says the protagonist of the performance. Disquiet is a modern, ironic performance about the essence of creation.
Opening performances on 18, 19, and 20 March 2022 at the Main Stage. On March 20, the performance is shown with English surtitles
