Description It is about memory and attachment ... the action is repetitive, stylised and rich with humour and anguish ... the ensemble is excellent and the whole piece is poignant and crisply directed. Inspired by and - according to a programme insert - in part 'reconstructed from' - Tadeusz Kantor's Wielopole - Wielopole.

Further Information The extent to which this show was 're-constructed' from Kantor gave rise to claims of plagiarism in some quarters.
