Drawing called Café Europe was an inspiration – T. Kantor in a spiral form wrote the names of the greatest artists – look only who is included there…
But in this case it was for the student to suggest the characters, to populate the café, or a shabby tavern rather, together with its stories and episodes. One of the stories grows up to enormous sizes and overwhelms the café reality, like a coelenterate …czytaj więcej

In the course of the performance drops of water dripping from the ceiling, out of a built on purpose installation, caused soaking of paper, exposing bodies of the actors and evoking images of emerging of the dead bodies of crime victims from the thin layer of dirt, mud and snow in time of the spring thaw and exhumations of the bodies...czytaj więcej
