‘I never want to see you again.
I never want to see you again.
I never want to see you again.

…call me back.’

Once upon a time in Romania, Aaron Orzech and his girlfriend met a strange and powerful man named Victor Bergman. The next day, he married them in the village of Voroneț. By the third day, he was gone, but for days and weeks and months afterwards he haunted Aaron’s life.

Performed by Brian Lipson and Aaron Orzech, The Collected works of Victor Bergman is the debut work by The Family. It begins with Aaron’s real life encounter and tumbles into a nightmare world of paranoid fantasy. Integrating stories, photographs, and interviews, the work explores the intrusion of a stranger into a person’s psyche.

The Family is a new theatre company created by Aaron Orzech and Romanie Harper. This show is conceived by Aaron Orzech, Romanie Harper, Zoey Dawson, James Paul, Katie Sfetkidis and Brian Lipson
