A production based on Włodzimierz Nowak’s coverage entitled HEAD GIRTH, using fragments of the book THE JANISSARY SCHOOL, LETTERS TO HIS GERMAN FRIEND by Alojzy Twardecki and various press and archival materials.
This is a story of the victims of Lebensborn: children who in the course of historical changes had to change their nationality, language and mothers twice; and people who defied their prejudices despite the nightmare of war, learning to live with the burden of their harrowing experiences. Young characters are vulnerable not only in the face of war, but above all – the callousness of adults who deprive them of their families and identity in the name of national agenda.

There were no curtains hung in the Scandinavian homes in order to show that their residents, especially women, had nothing to hide; that they lived honestly and devoutly. But what about the residents of contemporary homes, hiding behind the heavily curtained windows? Are the curtains hiding only their sins and minor misdeeds? Or are they hiding dreams as well, allowing the residents to break the bonds of propriety, to, if only temporarily, forget about social expectations? The Austrian playwright Werner Schwab mercilessly opens these curtains. He allows us to look into the deeply hidden desires of his presidents, the pillars of the middle class community, who, in spite of being burdened with everyday concerns, are still dreaming of love. And only behind the curtains they can safely fantasise.

A monodrama in which actress Edyta Lukaszewska inquires about freedom: where to seek it and whether it exists. In her opinion, “Totalitarianism is a state of mind filled with the fear of a nonexistent threat. I am looking for answers about what freedom is and how it matters to me. My character seems to know more about it”. The text was written by András Visky, a Hungarian poet, essayist and playwright born in 1957 in Târgu Mureş, Romania. His plays have been staged internationally, including in France, Italy, Poland and Romania.
