PLAY HOUSE - Ecole Nationale Superieure des Arts Decoratifs, Parijs, Frankrijk and The Aleksander Zelwerowicz National Academy of Dramatic Art, Warschau, Polen

Martin Crimp presented us with two characters - Simon and Katrina - and short scenes that showcase the experience of a young couple's undertaking to move in together in a new apartment. The sharp, uncompromising writing dictates a rigid structure where every day life is lived as an experience. Every moment is challenging this rigorous frame, slowly revealing the emptiness behind the appearances.

Uninhabited, there are no cues of any emotional path, any history. A fixed framework where everything is still possible, but this is only an appearance. We are proposing a performance in a space that we imagined together and in which we decided to inhabit. In a live performance,  we are bringing all our tools together in order to make the scenes work as we want, until the moment it does actually start matching with our own lives.

Play House is an experience: To occupy an unused and neutral space, our space 0.

LITTLE MERMAID - THE WEDDING - The Aleksander Zelwerowicz National Academy of Dramatic Art, Warschau, Polen

The Little Mermaid by H.Ch. Andersen served us as a basis to tell a story of a contemporary girl. We've chosen the moment of her wedding and told the whole story from the perspective of a bride. That is why the audience, our wedding guests are welcomed to the decorated space with balloons and orchestra, and a table with herrings vodka and bread. The bride awaits them, impatient and excited, she welcomes everyone, proposes a glass of champaigne, there will come a groom in a while and we're going to toast for the future of the just married couple.

Long live the newlyweds!
