This is not about me!

Solo physical theatre performance about political patriarchy and wanting the cleanest Earth on Earth. It is the physical narration of a dziad, a narrator, a clown, a trickster - who borrows contemporary expressions of various powerful political figures and comments on the world with his voice, gesture and body. The performance moves along a thin line between parody and criticism, subtly emphasizing and revealing what should not be visible. It is based on specific and media-known political cases, which, however, have a universal message and generally reflect the values ​​and actions that are promoted in various social environments and systems. The narrator's body transforms under the influence of various political narratives, juggling words, screaming, stuttering, roaring and voice flowing through space, running away, crawling or tensing...

Who are these heroes fighting for? What do they say when they let the words environment, growth, wealth and more out of their mouths? Do we live in the same world? Whose voice is it that speaks through the body?
