These two weeks reminded me of DEREVO’s beginnings.
Working continuously for 24 hours at the limit of your strengths, you stop being conscious of any other world but your own. And thus it becomes easy to be creative!
No, “easy” is the wrong word.
At the peak of tiredness all the most crazy ideas become natural, the place begins to draw people in like a magnet, a church-like seriousness builds, a whirlpool of power…
And then the great moment comes when the actors and dancers on stage cease to look like “performers”. They are living it.
It stops being “just” a Theatre.
and folliwing was the ONCE… in Poland, we’re heading to Italy with MEPHISTO WALTZ soon and AVIA is going to play a big concert at the Open Cinema Festival in St Petersburg
