Marriage with God
A small house in the snow and an elderly couple: Vaslav Nijinski
and Romola de Pulszky. "I'm thirsty. I have been mad for 33 years.
I have lived with a madman for 33 years. I'm thirsty." There is no
difference between them: the two people on stage are one and the
same person. They merge together, superimpose themselves, are two
faces of a single reality. Ecstasy and madness are shown from the
outside and from the inside: the stuttering of the visionary when
we see him, and his greatness when he dances in the world which he
sees. A performance about which it is difficult to speak according
to "objective" conventions, as with Min Fars Hus.
Created in Holstebro on the basis
of material elaborated by the two actors.
Based on fragments from Nijinski's
diary and texts by St. Teresa of Avila, Jorge Luis Borges, St. John
of the Cross, Vincent Gaeta, Miguel Hernández, Juan Ramón Jiménez
and, above all, Jalal Ud-Din Rumi.
