Porywacze Ciał Theatre, PoznańThe Technology of a Success
Teatr Porywacze Ciał was founded in 1992. So far it has presented a few plays, and among them: Psy (The Dogs), I Love you, Świnie (The Pigs), Minimal and the recent production – Technologia sukcesu (The Technology of a Success). Since its beginning, the Theatre has used the original poetic means of expression, and its aesthetic aim is to describe the reality by its own pictures and words. The performances of the Theatre are a kind of deceitful dialogue with the world of the seeming choices, empty gestures and tepid feelings. It is a dialogue which lacks simple solutions, which gives up simple solutions and which focuses on asking questions and providing mirrors. The protagonists – especially from “Minimal” – …want to live a kind of full lives but it remains unknown what kind of lives they were to be. Was it to be a room full of coloured gadgets or the immense Universe with immeasurable number of stars…
The actors of the Theatre often give up the mask and they show the contemporary hero in the contemporary world. Operating the signs of this contemporary reality they somehow reveal the cheap elements of something that today we call life.
