WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Braakland is presented as part of the New Island Festival on Governor's Island. In sober, penetrating images, Braakland tells a tale of nine figures wandering about a forgotten land. They surrender to the laws of living and dying, without defense. Is this an existence that they have chosen - or one they merely failed to escape? Award-winning director Lotte Van den Berg was inspired by the novels of J.M. Coetzee, the South African writer who received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2003 when making this astonishing piece of theatre. A performance without words, Braakland conveys the violence, the desolation, and the poetry of Coetzee's work. Attention: this is an open-air performance; please wear suitable clothing and footwear; recommended for those ages 16+. The festival will be accessible via a free ferry: the Governors Island Ferry departs from the Battery Maritime Building located adjacent to the Staten Island Ferry.
