About the production


7:30 p.m.


10 p.m.

Russian director Boris Yukhananov, a founding thinker of the processualism movement, has adapted Dostoyevsky’s novel »Demons« for the theatre. He is assisted in this by Artificial Intelligence software that can intervene in the events and make independent alterations to the text. Yukhananov transports the complex themes and motifs of »Demons« into our modern world and celebrates the 200th anniversary of Dostoyevsky’s birth by intertwining tradition and renewal to create a brightly glowing filament.
