Borgestriptych is a contemporary text for theatre by Yasen Vasilev that draws inspiration from three short stories by Jorge Luis Borges – ‘Death and the Compass’, ‘The Other’ and ‘The Library of Babel”. It takes the narrative from the first one, the characters from the second and the setting from the third. Four different versions of the same person meet and are able to talk to each other. In this world library and universe are equal and the spaces and their occupiers are entirely made of quotes.

Production: DNK and Yasen Vasilev
The production is realised with the financial support of the American Foundation for Bulgaria and with the cooperation of the Council for European Studies of Columbia University (Interdisciplinary Art Grant), Bulgarian Concert Evenings in New York and Elizabeth Kostova Foundation.
