US Premiere. Presented with CalArts Center for New Performance (CNP) and STUDIO theatrgallery.
A company of Polish and CalArts artists explores Witkacy’s work, set against the backdrop of California’s endless and wild nature. The plot unfolds through the journey of a neurotic boy and his family from New Guinea through Sydney to the desert. Witkacy believed that nature can be a source of metaphysical experience that gives us a chance to protect our individuality from the soulless social machine of Western civilization.
