The show confronts viewers with their responsibility for the place they reside in.
The performance takes place in a city populated by struggling crowds – it constitutes a collage of the present and the history narrated and sung chorally. An energetic and dynamic show – theatre of movement, on the one hand, and a highly textual play that focuses on … de-sensing / de-rationalising its very content, on the other. Or, a play aiming to express what we intend to express so as to express it eventually and to be listened to attentively and in earnest.
The theme of the play touches upon the specificity of the city and the world as read on the basis of the sign system. This is a narrative filtered through the prism of the problems affecting a modern individual that collides with the might of the city square, with the lack of space in public transportation, with difficulties arising on both sides of the food bowl, and in particular on its periphery, where the density of the population causes each city-state to create its own artificial lake and supreme court out of the dialect rendered by means of the language of all translations. That is why we have decided to tackle the subject collectively, examine it closely, and – as what we have seen terrified us so much – we have decided to express it in our play.
Always present on stage, six actors create one organism. At times something goes awry and jars: a cell stubbornly presses ahead and attempts to speak on its own behalf, but the cell is ceaselessly accompanied by a choir composed of the five remaining individuals. As a collective body, they are equipped with considerable power. They voice their sentiments, talking about what irritates and hurts them in a seemingly senseless manner, as if the words uttered by them were united by accident.
