The performance was created in co-production with The Modern Theatre of Wrocław [MTW].
1793 is not an easy year. Only in January the annexation of Polish territories starts, which, in fact, is the second partition of Poland. People living and witnessing the atmosphere of those historical turbulences and growing anarchy are not aware of those events’ consequences. There are actors of wandering Wiktor Ryks theatre among them, with their weird performance shown every evening. The members of this troupe wander and observe the collapsing country. After a while decay and mayhem start to affect them. What will happen with actors in the collapsing country? What kind of a world is dilapidating around them? Who is a king slayer among them? And finally, who really is THE REPUBLIC?
The creators try to answer all those questions.
