The "OTHERS" project is a performance concerning the otherness and familiarity. It is a story about situation when another person becomes a stranger or the other. Is it possible, that by telling someone's story you can tame him? Can we recognize ourselves in the strangers, in the others? The more we know about them, the less we fear? Or is it the opposite? Can we turn our fear into curiosity? How to take this route: CURIOSITY - RISK - FRANKNESS - ASTONISHMENT - CLOSENESS, instead of: FEAR - ISOLATION - CLOSURE - REJECTION.
Performance "OTHERS" created by 6 actors and dancers, and 2 live musicians, is inviting the audience to participate. We use texts from the book "NIE-OBCY", Zbigniew Herbert's poetry and texts written by Amiri Baraka.
