The Curse - political horror play at Imka Theater
May 23, 2014
The second part of “The Curse (Klątwa), episodes from the time of hopelessness”, a hot, political, theatrical series written by Paweł Demirski and directed by Monika Strzępka will be shown at Warsaw’s Imka theater on May 23-25.
The play entitled The Religion Lesson premiered on May 16 at the Łaźnia Nowa Theater in Cracow.
The performance maintained in the formula of political fiction and horror was created as a multi-layer story disassembling the mechanisms ruling the history.
In the first episode entitled "Don’t mess with Jesus", shown at Imka in March, all parliamentarians died in some mysterious circumstances. This happened at the moment when the society shown on the stage, engaged in meaningless games, was in vain seeking liberation from the clinch of divisions and opposition and started doubting seriously the sense and purpose of their existence.
In the second episode, entitled Religion Lesson, the time stops. The real hell is within reach. The characters try to go back to the old order, desperately believing that the views held and solutions accepted so far are useless in the final bid.
“The Curse” is the first theatrical series by Strzępka and Demirski. They chose this form as they say an extended story, divided into episodes will better show the pulsating and constantly changing reality, especially in the politically and socially stormy times.
The performance is co-produced by Imka Theater in Warsaw and Łaźnia Nowa Theater in Cracow.
Cast includes Klara Bielawka, Krzysztof Dracz, Dobromir Dymecki, Anna Kłos-Kleszczewska, Radomir Rospondek, Alona Szostak and Paweł Tomaszewski.
