Scenes from Louis Andriessen's Anaïs Nin, premiered in Siena in July 2010, touring the Netherlands in November 2010 and travelling to Germany and the UK in 2011.
Andriessen’s 30-minute monodrama for singer/actress, film and ensemble explores the writings of Anaïs Nin who frankly recreated the memories of her sexual liaisons in 1930s Paris. Texts are drawn from her journal Incest which focuses especially on her emotionally charged relationship with her father, the composer Joaquin Nin, who stated “I’ve met the woman of my life, and it’s my daughter”.
