Laughter in the Dark is a classic tale of desire, lust, misfortune and deception based on a novel by Vladimir Nabokov. A man, Albinus, leaves his wife and child for a young lover, Margot, and his life ends in a catastrophy. The choice of a simple well-written tale with a classic plot lets us develop the visual and audio means and turn them into active co-players. The dynamic space, the close up sounds, the accompanying music, the complete darkness and the light full of shadows challenge the viewer’s sight and ears, and makes the performance unforgettable.
Laughter in the Dark can be experienced at the Teatro Vascello in Rome during the RomaEuropa Festival on 28 and 29 November 2015.
