The world cried shame about Lolita. From 1956 to 1958 the novel was even banned in France and the US. In his controversial classic, Vladimir Nabokov describes an older man’s obsession with a twelve-year-old girl. But what happens when the narrator’s perspective is turned around? If you see things from the point of view of the child, who is deeply drawn to the adults’ forbidden world? The creators of the appealing, intimate stage solo LO LIE TAA looked to their own childhood for inspiration. Memories of love like a cloud of butterflies, the desperation of keyhole affairs, being imprisoned in children’s costumes. Can adults take an open-minded look at a child’s desire?
