Panic Report

Arti Grabowski

Arti Grabowski is a natural entertainer, no doubt about it. He feels great in this surreal, over-the-top formula, almost always striking with precision – be it a stereotype or a narrative promoted usually for political reasons. He skillfully balances between bitter irony, comedy and seriousness.

The Panic Report officially premiered at the OFF Kontrapunkt in Szczecin in 2018, where it was awarded the main Zygmunt Duczyński Prize. It is an attempt to resuscitate an actor in an endemic performer. The collage performance is based on Roland Topor’s Journal in time and the author’s own texts. Each scene leads the audience to the panicky wilderness of stereotypical vices, oceans of phobia and swamps of hypocrisy.
