PREMIERE 6.11. 2020
TIME: 70 MIN
Why is talking about sex taboo? How can we tackle it on stage without being accused of provocation, perversion, transgressing the bounds of intimacy? Our response is quite simple, though the execution is more difficult… we are trying to be straightforward.
In this highly intimate stage adaptation of Remigiusz Ryziński’s book “My Life Is Mine”, we inevitably come in contact with extremes. We vacillate between sensitivity and vulgarity, fairy-tale and pornography, morality and desire etc.
“Sex is a form of fulfillment, a response to oppression, power, pleasure, loss, and finally, love,” the author states in his introduction. On stage, we try to dredge up all these qualities, neither refraining from nor fearing any of them.
Sex eludes interpretation. It can, however, be illustrated—we try to make use of this premise, staging over a dozen tales of the various shades of the sex we have, we dream about, and of which we are endlessly ashamed.
A warning: this play tackles issues widely considered taboo in society, it uses words generally seen as offensive and vulgar, and there are references to various sorts of sexual acts, and psychological and physical sexual violence.
Viewers over the age of eighteen are invited at their own discretion.
The play uses strobe lights.
