The last performance of Pina Bausch on Szaniawski Theatre’s stage.

The interdisciplinary artist, Cezary Tomaszewski with Wałbrzych team, creates a nostalgic and full of humor tribute  to a great artist. A performance from the border of a document, a biography, a concert, a dance theater and a farce is created in cigarettes’ smoke, as all the actors are currently quitting smoking.

It’s about nicotine addiction and being addicted to creating art, about nicotine, power and charismatic leader addiction; about a loss and mourning, about Walbrzych Wuppertal, dancing,
and PINA BAUSCH.

„I’m not interested in how people move, but in what moves them.” – Pina Bausch.
