Song of the Goat Theatre, Poland

dir. Grzegorz Bral


A performance inspired by Tytus Andronicus by Shakespeare. Original text and music touch on the problems of moral dilemmas, the extreme cruelty which arises from revenge. Performance, reflects on the universal issues through the individual experiences and reflections of the characters. With this performance, TPK measures the beginning of evil in man. We investigate the wounds from which revenge and violence are born. With this drama, Song of the Goat Theater continues the process of vivisection of a man who most often becomes a victim of his emotional reactions, which, gaining strength, begin to radiate to his immediate surroundings, and as a result, they embrace entire nations, politics, and religions. Escaping the rhetoric and judgments, the theatre uses the language of metaphors, both verbal and contained in gestures and movement. After the experiences of recent theatrical researches (Antigone, Warrior, Apocrypha), TPK found a new language of theater that combines multi-layered artistic expression with intertextual dialogue with the classics of cultural writing, to find new perspectives of human behavior as a searching and anthropological theater.

The performance is a finalist of Golden Yorick Competition.
