Teatr Polski in Wrocław shows Kronos at Warsaw Theater Meetings
April 7, 2014
“Kronos”, a play by one of the greatest 20th century Polish writers Witold Gombrowicz will be shown as part of the 34th Warsaw Theater Meetings
The spectacle, directed by Krzysztof Garbaczewski is brought to Warsaw by the Teatr Polski in Wrocław.
The most awaited book of the year of 2013, Witold Gombrowicz’s Kronos, for the first time can be seen on stage in Poland.
The author of “Ferdydurke” and “Diaries” comes out as a chronicler of his own quotidian. He wants to stop the passing time in his notes. He tries to make a kind of ritual out of the time, counting incomes, people whom he met, lovers, books which he read, illnesses. How can one answer him in the theatre? Only by his/her own kronos, time brought to a stop, vanishing caught in the act.
Attention: There are stroboscopic lamps used during the production!
