Jan Jedenak

Inspired by Guy de Maupassant’s fictitious diary Le HorlaSéance invokes the invisible by means of motivic minimalist sequences. In the spotlight moments of the past springing from some mind lost in lunacy freeze accompanied by sinistre recordings of sound. Playing a game with the haze of light and unsettled perception, Séance, between light and shadow, tries to catch the uncanny presence of what is absent.

Jan Jedenak was born in Germany and has lived in Leipzig since July 2021. He studied puppetry at the Figure Theatre Department of State University of Music and Performing Arts Stuttgart. Since 2011 he has continued working as a freelance theatre director and puppeteer collaborating with artist of various backgrounds such as music, dance, performing arts and puppetry creating productions for national and free theater.
