Frogs

Frogs

An original performance by Michał Borczuch based on fragments of Greek comedies by Aristophanes (The Frogs, The Clouds, The Birds), Krzysztof Niemczyk’s novel The Courtesan and the Chicks and actors' improvisations. An attempt to look at our roots, at the Greek heritage. The two key ideas for the creators are beauty and good understood as one word - Kalokagathia. A word expressing the concept of the complete personality of a man who is born maladjusted and who must learn life. Sexuality and intimacy in the relationship with another human being are inseparable elements of life. These relations are presented from the perspective of hetero- and homosexuality. Filtered by contemporary sensitivity (classical texts confronted with actors' own experiences and documentary research) an image of civilisation, sexuality and ancient culture.

Opinie

(...) Borczuch makes great use of the camp for his own purposes, sometimes it is so subtle that you can be fooled, sometimes ostentatious, sometimes classic, and sometimes it is a variation on your own subject. The frame of this camp game is, firstly, the homo-reality, whose colleagues, however, somehow disgust; secondly, homohistory, which apart from Krzysztof Niemczyk and his novel, can not be drawn too much to the camp; thirdly - autotheatre, or the theater of personal statements, and thus homodext; fourth, an alibi, in the form of ancient culture and its homohedonism. Unfortunately, as it was already mentioned, it is 2018 and it is not all about a nice evening in an adult theater.
