Belarus Free Theatre’s Tomorrow I Was Always a Lion is a theatrical investigation into the nature of psychosis and recovery. Based on the extraordinary memoir by Arnhild Lauveng.
Then the Captain came.
The first time I met him I was writing in my diary, and I suddenly realized that one of my sentences ended in a different way than I had wanted.
This raw and imaginative new production explores Lauveng’s controversial text to challenge our perception and understanding of the condition.
I was picked up by the police and a doctor and brought to a closed ward. But it was too late. I had already disappeared into the forest. It was a dense forest, and it took me years to come back out.
Belarus Free Theatre is the only theatre in Europe banned by its government on political grounds. Following BFT’s furious production of Sarah Kane’s 4.48 Psychosis, which is blacklisted in Belarus, BFT have fearlessly continued to use theatre to excavate social taboos. Tomorrow I Was Always a Lion continues this journey of provoking and challenging the deepest questions of our humanity.
