Human beings live in an imagined order. Most aspects of social life rely on beliefs in de facto nonexistent entities; we base our decisions on a certain vision of the future, quite often including uncertain assumptions (mortgages with a 20-year payment plan). It is the belief in the imagined that most distinguishes humans from other animals, helping to create narratives that elevated man to rule over other creatures.

In a multicultural group of performers- amateurs and artists, we will take on the theme of faith as a force ordering our life. We will reflect on our belief in a free market, universal justice, a world without borders, sustainable development, whether Poland being the Christ of nations influences our everyday choices and functioning in the world. The project will refer to experiences of the participants- their perception of postcolonial relations or respective religions. Confronting our beliefs with accompanying prejudices, stereotypes and weaknesses we will attempt to reflect on what separates human beings from animals.


The performance is the third part of the trilogy Animals-Men-Gods organized by FreeWord Sphere, concluding several months of theatre, dance, musical and visual workshops reuniting Poles, migrants and refugees.
