Imagine...

A midnight train pulls up to a station. A voice on the loudspeaker ask the passengers to transfer to another train. Some of the passengers disembark, and the engine pushes off. No one at the station seems to be able to answer any questions (what is the name of this town?). All the passengers can do is settle down in the waiting room, the only decent (warm) place, and wait for morning.

Disorientation, fatigue, and stress can and do lead to the formation of micro-communities. When night falls, these groups are subjected to a dissection of sorts. Night can itself become a penetrating x-ray image of something much greater – “our universe,” to put it haughtily.

Let the actors make the first move. Let them carry into this world their own imagination, concerns, and desires, contained in a sketch – an embryo – of a character.

The playwright may then step in and cultivate settings, letting the nascent matter wander and grow in an ever-changing environment.

Krystian Lupa

 

A performance is created in a laboratory work process. It is experimental, although not because of the method (as the last performances by Lupa are the point of reference), but due to the confrontation of two extremely strong personalities that differ from each other in terms of generations and aesthetics.
