Regardless of the corner of the globe in which we live, in most cases we have irretrievably abandoned the ability to sit on the street and neighborhood benches. This former domain of people of mature age, abandoned nowadays, deprives us of the ability to perceive the neighbouring world and watch it closely. And also to look beyond the horizon and stare at this symbol of hope for a much-needed rebirth. This journey of vain faith to the cradle of Mediterranean culture, inspired by Różewicz’s Et in Arcadia ego, turns into a poem about the condition of our civilization.
In his newest premiere, Jerzy Zoń makes us strain our eyes to achieve the state of all-seeing. It exposes the present time as a prime murderer of the past. From the first to the last scene of this séance-like theatre piece without words the audience will be accompanied by the irresistible sense of longing for the world, for art, for oneself, and with the desire to obtain a gift of transferable roots. In this piece the author paints an Arcadian landscape made of everything that is most beautiful and cruel in earthly life, where echoes of mythical words reach us in every nook and cranny.
A wise, poignant, touching spectacle. Big applause for Jerzy Zoń and all the Co-authors. I haven’t seen a performance so integral and so moving for a long time.
