Krystian Lupa Perturbation

Adapted from the novel of Thomas Bernhard


Published in 1967, Perturbation is Thomas Bernhard’s second novel. Following a doctor’s consultations in rural Austria, it draws implacable portraits of characters trapped in a
hostile environment. The virulent melancholy of Bernhard’s play is well matched by Lupa’s interest for the perturbations of the human body and soul, sounding the gap between
reality and fantasy, revolt and surrender.
