What can an artist do for the world in a time of crisis? And what should he do for himself? These are perhaps the most frequently repeated and thus already trite-sounding questions of theater people in times of pandemics or war and economic catastrophes lately. We look for solutions in great literature, distinguished predecessors, modern research and individual therapies. The world bombards us with golden advice tailored to every problem, or expects us to generate this advice in our performances.
To face these expectations, we invite our audience to “Carmina – Home of Poles in Crisis”. Once they’ve settled down comfortably and put themselves under the care of our instructions, we’ll begin the collective healing. We will be patronized by the poet Horace, the father of all golden advice, exhorting us to seek harmony and peace of mind. We will follow even the strangest theories, undertake the most controversial therapies. And while we can’t promise anyone that will come out of this screening unscathed, we can guarantee one thing – a song will stay with them, and that’s the last thing that can still keep us from going crazy….
