Transformations

A girl pushes ancient vases off their shelves. A guy knocks over innocent passers-by, with the top of his head, he hits a low hanging branch over the entrance to the house. The girl blasts out reality, snorting insolently, but reality pretends nothing happens and consistently passes over the incoherence in silence. The girl becomes pregnant, the guy crashes the car on a roadside tree, the girl gets into her dream university, and the guy decides to run away from home and move in with a friend he met in a club.
Growing up is insane. In truth, only a teenager in the process of growing up knows what is inside their head. Upper and lower limbs are growing, the nervous system cannot keep up with ever-changing body shape, cannot manage its coordinates, sends out impulses blindly, completely disorientated – where does the arm end, where do neck and head begin? The nervous system does not know, condemning its host to an awkward dance, making it impossible to walk peacefully. The hormones are roaring. Everything happens quickly and violently, and it is not the circumstances that change, but the entire person. Their body and mind. There is no other stage of life when humans undergo transformations as powerful as during their adolescence. Are we changing though, or are we taking off the masks that we had shown to people around us? Is the transformation necessary? Does the transformation require solitude?
“Transformations” – a play about growing up for youth and adults. After the original production of “Frogs”, Michał Borczuch returns to STUDIO. This time, the director based his new play on Ovid’s Metamorphoses, actors’ improvisations and the text by Joanna Bednarczyk which was created in collaboration with young people involved in the play’s creative process.

Transformations is a coproduction of STUDIO and Teatr Polski in Bydgoszcz, as well as the Small Divine Comedy Festival in Cracow, and Łaźnia Nowa Theatre. The creative process was preceded by meetings and workshops within the Open Studios programme conducted by Michał Borczuch and his collaborators.

Reviews

Katarzyna Niedurny [dwutygodnik.com]

Trzeba Borczuchowi przyznać, że po doświadczeniach pracy z amatorami w „Lepiej tam nie idź”(2014), „Paradiso”(2014), „Fauście”(2015), „Zostań, zostań” (2015) potrafi umiejętnie łączyć na scenie profesjonalnych aktorów i zaproszonych gości – dając tym ostatnim wsparcie i przestrzeń do wypowiedzi. Obecność i opowieści nastolatków na scenie stanowią bardzo kruchy materiał, a jednocześnie mocny i mądry.
