The Minotaur in English

An English translation of my early play "The Minotaur" (1988) has just appeared in "Labyrinthus", a volume dedicated to the work of the Lithuanian contemporary artist Dainius Liškevičius. The book has been published by Lapas publishing house in Vilnius, simultaneously in Lithuanian and English. Here there is more about the book, which is a work of art by itself, with numerous illustrations of Liškevičius' work and texts both by himself and other authors. The English translation of the play, by Adam Cullen, was commissioned specially for this book - Liškevičius has told me that the Lithuanian translation of the play, initially published in the 1990s, has been a strong inspiration for him while he was working with the projects collected in the book and he therefore wanted it to appear in the English version as well.
