The Historie of the Lord’s Glorius Resurrection

The play by the Wierszalin Theatre attempts to create ritual theatre based on a Chrystian myth. It is a medieval epic (the Apocrypha) about the resurrection of a Christian prophet (teacher and master) Jesus, who died a martyr’s death at the hands of Romans in 33 A.D. According to prophecy, Jesus rose from the dead after three days and revealed himself to his disciples as a living man.

God Nijinsky

"Diaghilev is dead"... - these are the first words said in "God Nijinsky". At the derelict chapel of the lunatic asylum in Kreutzlingen starts the unusual panichida. Vaclav Nijinsky serves the requiem mass for his promoter and lover. He was told that the famous Russian Ballet's producer, Sergei Diaghilev had just died in Venice. Once Nijinsky promised him " Serge I will dance on your grave". So he dances, blessing his believers, a group of Kreutzlingen patients, participating with him in this astonishing ritual.

A Treatise on Mannequins

The fragment of “The Cinnamon Shops” is just a starting point for further reflection upon unfathomable nature of human existence rather than an illustration of the well-known text written by Bruno Schulz. The characters – Father (Rafał G±sowski) with his audience – Son (Miłosz Pietruski) and Adela - the maid (Dariusz Matys) draw us in the realm of mysticism and the mystery of the animate matter.

Wierszalin. An account on the end of the world

In his famous book published in 1974 Włodzimierz Pawluczuk - a sociologist, an anthropologist and a scholar of religion - described the phenomenon of Wierszalin. In the thirties of the last century in this little village, lost somewhere in Białostocczyzna, the Ortodox sect under prophet Ilijah command (an illiterate peasant, who claimed to be the new prophet Elijah) wanted to build the New Jerusalem. Piotr Tomaszuk takes from Pawluczuk's book mainly bare facts. He combines the witnesses' and even participants' descriptions and relations into one fascinating parade. In this procession take part six extraordinary actors portraying simple peasants from the Polish-Belarus borderland.
