“On s’en va”, Krzysztof Warlikowski’s newest piece
Surrounded by his very talented actors and actresses from Nowy Teatr in Warsaw, Krzysztof WARLIKOWSKI returns to Hanokh LEVIN, one of his preferred authors. His first meeting with the author resulted in the creation of Kroum in 2003, and which is still in the repertoire. “On s’en va“, which is even more disillusioned, makes use of the text Sur les valises, subtitled ‘comedy in eight burials’.
The community depicted is persuaded that it is impossible for them to continue living in that place and in that way. The characters have strong desires for elsewhere, trapped as they are and their reality undermined by disappointment. The only destination they will reach is death, on a journey that is everything but heroic.
In this universe, that he knows well, Warlikowski injects new emotions and brings out the disillusioned smile of Levin.
