SYNOPSIS

“A dark and scandalous masterpiece” – that’s what has been said about “Heart of Darkness”, written by Joseph Conrad in 1899. A cruise from Europe into the depths of the African river Congo is simultaneously a journey into European violence.
The story of Kurtz’s outpost and his crimes in the name of civilization's development is a story of a patriarchal order built on the exploitation of people, the environment, and resources.

 

We want to take our audience into a theatrical and sound-based journey into the heart of darkness so that we can tell a story of a fiasco of this enlightenment project from today’s perspective.

 

The show was planned as an immersive sound story. That’s why members of the audience should be wearing special headphones for optimal reception for the majority of the spectacle. Headphone sets are by each chair in the audience. They are disinfected after each show.

A stage smoke is used in the show.

 

The first video scene was shot in Mateusz Atman’s scenography from "Ali: Fear Eats the Soul" a play directed by Agnieszka Jakimiak.
