UNBODY (Hertz Haus) – the winners of the „The Best Off” competition will perform at the KTO Theater

Let’s look at the human body today. Here is the finished form known to everyone. A pair of upper limbs, a pair of limbs harmonious symmetry, the head is seated at the forehead of the body, the heaviest of the elements below the torso. Man assembly line production. However, it cannot be assumed that every silhouette is identical at the factory. People they are physically different, they have different skin and hair colors, different body shapes, different facial contours, but […]

What does The Time smell like?

Na pierwszym planie trójkołowy rowerek. Za rowerkiem, plecami do obiektywu stoi mężczyzna ubrany w poszarpany kostium. Ma bose stopy, na plecach trzyma akordeon. Obok niego chłopiec w niebieskim ubranku i czarnym kaszkiecie. Oboje patrzą przed siebie na wynurzające się z dymu cztery kobiety w czarnych sukienkach, na bosaka i z małymi tobołkami na ramieniu. Wszystko oświetlone mocnym, niebieskim światłem. Z lewej strony za barierkami publiczność.

Jerzy Zoń, the director of the performance „The Fragrance of Time”, looks for answers to this question in his biography and the work of Gabriel Garcia Márquez, Hugo Claus and Emil Zegadłowicz. Thanks to his considerations, by more than hour, the audience are led on a trail of various reflections, picturesquely presented in subsequent scenes full of childhood fantasies, dreams visions, hopes and fears.   The poetry and melancholy of street theatre kidnapped the audience and took it into the world of Zoń.

Polish horizon

*** I wander through the field of your forehead the illuminated path between the furrows of worry to the horizon of gray hair and more deeply into the garden of thought (…) from Regina Lipecka’s collection of poems „Kites”    The cyclops woman looking from the billboard announcing the 35th ULICA Jubilee Festival bears no resemblanceto the mythical giants who tend herds of sheep and raise gigantic walls withbare hands. Thisimage that might as well be put on the cover of a fashion […]

Interfusions 

When another Don Quixote arrives in Krakow at the beginning of July to stand by the jugglers frolicking in the Main Market Square, even the old Cervantes’ ape of Master Peter, large, without a tail and with hairy buttocks, may not save Jerzy Zoń’s three-day illusion. Although he is not a hidalgo but, let’s say, a plumber by the name of Stefan, and not from La Mancha but from the Nowa Huta district of Krakow, he is still, just like the primary Don Quixote, […]
