“Theatre piece From Venus to Nameless is a statement about the possibility of crossing the boundaries of understanding and comprehending the essence of participating in the ritual of life. The power of Shakespeare’s word is interrupted by a simple and painful commandment to adapt to the conditions here and now. Despite the efforts, the smell disappears and helplessness remains. ” said Justyna Cwojdzińska, the main performer of the show.
Nameless is kept in a mental health institution without her consent. She needs to obey the painful rules and try to adapt, fit it. Through the female characters from Shakespeare’s plays, she is able to go through everything that she emotionally experienced in her life, from naive Juliet, through deceived Desdemona, to poor Ophelia, finally turning into the queen of elves Titania. Only then she is free. Only then she is allowed to be herself. Will she find the way out? Will she be released? All of the mysteries are left to the audience to find out through their minds and the emotions delivered by performers on the stage.
From the Venus to Nameless features a live music performance by Stan Michalak (Contrabass) with lighting by Sylwia Wierbicka and costume by Barbara Nabialek.
