I am the theatre


“I am the theatre. I’m old and not as sexy anymore. I am a poor theatre, but have many stories to tell. Inside me, people meet. They are searching for something, want to understand something. They sing, applaud, laugh, dance, chorus. Sometimes they yell a lot and show their naked bodies. I’m there somehow, I try to be political, I try to intensify life, I know that death is inevitable, that’s what makes me tired, death. I hope you’ll still come visit.”

Under the programmatic title TEATRO, nadaproductions – four performers, one fine artist, one musician and one lighting engineer from Poland, Austria, Russia, Chile, Argentina, Mexico and Switzerland – join their voices to explore the conventional understanding of Theatre. TEATRO deals with the term “theatre”, theatre as a place of illusion, of fiction, the theatre as a building, as well as with the act of performing in front of an audience. The different ideas on theatre merge into a performance. The performers face impossible tasks; they fail but find liberating laughter.
