In 1942 Bruno Schulz was murdered by a member of the Gestapo while going to buy a loaf of bread. 70 years later The Teresa & Andrzej Welminski Foundation & Third Arrangement decided to create a show inspired by his stories, his drawings, his life and his most intimate thoughts.
As the book opens a forgotten world is abruptly brought to life. An old, dusty train station, a sanatorium lost in time, home to our hero’s father, his noisy and smelly bird cages and a group of wax figures abandoned by their creator ...
In this world we meet Josef, the alter ego of our author Schulz, a son in search of memories of a lost father. We see as he traverses a reality ready-made for him and with each turn of the page we meet one of the mutitude of ephemeral figures Schulz has placed in his path.
Third Arrangement were founded in 2012 by Andrzej and Teresa Welminski, original members of Tadeusz Kantor´s Cricot 2 Theatre.In the short time following their inception the company has enjoyed considerable success, touring throughout Europe while picking up awards and critical praise. The company is made up of artists from all over Europe who´s wide experience is dedicated to further investigate the artistic principles of Tadeusz Kantor´s work.
