SYNOPSIS

The body is getting ready to attack. All the right centres in the brain are becoming alert, the heart starts to beat faster, the reaction to pain lowered. Reflexes are on high, hands are sweating. Anger is an active emotion, it is release whenever there is an attempt our territory is being encroached upon or violated.

Drawing on the individual experiences of three actors of Teatr Powszechny and four boys at the age 12-15, we would like to reflect upon the way in which anger is expressed. The combination of two adolescent boys and adult men lets us work on anger as a category which changes with age, life experience and emotions. We are interested in managing the affect in a symbolic sphere which is not limited to the individual: who is the „guardian” of expressing anger? How can it be stifled and to what extent can one be in charge of it?

Definitely refraining from assigning anger to men only, we would still like to take a closer look at masculinity – how is it produced and processed by the norms in force, or the fantasies and sentiments about it, whether they are wanted or not. A fantasy about being a man, about being a boy, a sentiment about being a boy imprisoned in a man and a man in a boy. What is it that links men who are separated by generations? What relations can be produced in such a set-up?



Małgorzata Wdowik – (born 1989) – theatre director, graduate of theatre studies at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, theatre direction at the Theatre Academy in Warsaw, and choreography and performance art at the Institute of Applied Theatre Studies in Giessen. She is the co-creator of the German K.A. U. Kollektiv, a group which works at the intersection of theatre, performance and visual arts. She is soon to begin studies at the prestigious DAS in Amsterdam. In Poland she has directed such plays as „The Girls” in Teatr Studio as well as „The Footballers” and „Fear” in TR Warszawa.
