Nanos Operetta's latest venture The Blind Owl
is in the early stages of development with St. Petersburg's heroic engineers of Russian theater AKHE Group
. Former collaborator and high chief of artistic merit Blixa Bargeld (Einst??rzende Neubaten)
is rumored to provide narrations.
The piece, based on Iranian existentialist author Sadegh Hedayat
's writings, will be created as an evening-length show for the stage between St. Petersburg and Russia over the next year. Hedayat is recognized as the patron saint of the ensemble (Nanos' performance series 3 Drops of Blood took its name from one of Hedayat's short stories.)
The ambassadors of Nanos travel to St. Petersburg in April to begin ruminations with the mighty AKHE in the first of several collisions.
