Based on the story Marguerite Duras: Le ravissement de Lol V. Stein © Éditions Gallimard.
The Ravishing of Lol Stein by Marguerite Duras was described by the famous psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan as the embodiment of the theory of unattainable love that forever eludes both perception and possession. The story all stems
from an incident that occurred when 19-yearold Lol was at a dance with her fiancé, and an older woman, Anne-Marie Stretter, turned up and stole his heart. The loss of her fiancé is the cause of Lol’s arrogance, ecstasy and rapture in the world portrayed by Jacques Hold, the lover of Lol’s youthful friend, Tatiana Karl, who at one point falls in love with Lol, too. In his essay entitled When Love is the Law: On the Ravishing of Lol V. Stein, Dominiek Hoens says that love consists of a change in positions from the object to the subject of desire, so love cannot exist without loss. In order to give what we do not have, we must invent what we could be in the desire of the Other, and so lose what we really are. Matjaž Berger’s production will be based on the mobilisation of the infinitesimal fragility of the feminine essence and rhythm, which stretches between the ineffable and the mysterious, with the strong suggestion of Desire in the Gaze.
