The New Stage

It’s the kind of play that cannot be recounted: it’s micro-theatre by Anna Karasińska.

The man on the bus grabbing the handrail before me; the person who packed your box of raisins in a faraway country; a man who dived into a river in Chinese Xi’an. What do they have in common? They’re all characters in the Fantasia, yet none of them appears on stage. They exist solely in the minds of the director, the actors and the audience. Let’s say we organized a meeting of a certain number of people who wouldn’t meet otherwise, or wouldn’t notice meeting one another even if they did. It’s hard to say whether they are theatre characters or fictional people. They appear at the contact point between the viewers’ and actors’ imaginations; they interact with each other; accompany each other and disappear. Don’t expect roles or elaborate productions. The events play out on an empty stage with the bare minimum of a set. The actors don’t pretend they are not actors; they speak directly to the audience, breaking the wall between the stage and the house.

60 minutes, in Polish with English and Czech surtitles.
