Caesarean Section: Essays on Suicide

We dedicate this performance to:
The Force of Gravitation
Our Throats
Wise Bridesmaids
Foolish Bridesmaids
All the Lukewarm
Zygmunt Duczyński

The title of the performance is a metaphor for suicidal compulsion and the involuntary force that pulls us back from the brink. It is about the potential of the necessary ability to prolong one′s breathing at the moment when one feels in the veins the pieces of glass that haven′t yet managed to reach the heart.

Teatr ZAR

Teatr ZAR is a multinational group that was formed in Wrocław by apprentices of the Grotowski Institute and took shape during annual research expeditions to Georgia between 1999 and 2003. During these expeditions, the apprentices collected much musical material, including a core of centuries-old polyphonic songs that are probably the oldest forms of polyphony in the world. The name of the group, ZAR, is taken from the title of funeral songs, which in Caucasian tradition, among others in Svaneti, are the essence of singing understood as “column of sound”.
