Date and time
Saturday 11th February 2023, 8pm

During the process of theatrical art therapy, the experiences of the Belarussian protest participants began to resonate with the second part of Adam Mickiewicz’s Forefathers’ Eve. The performance’s starting point are photographs taken by Zmicer Waynowski, a direct participant in the protests, who was able to capture all the main strands of these complex and dramatic events.

In November 2020, Waynowski was arrested during a usual, weekly protest – the “Pensioners’ March”. He was sentenced to 13 days in jail based on the infamous paragraph 23.34. It was his last field job as a photographer. After serving his sentence, he was subjected to further pressure and harassment and forced to leave the country. He currently lives in Lublin.

After the performance, there will be a Q&A session held with the creative team Zmicer Waynouski, Irina Lappo, and Paweł Passini. The discussion will be moderated by Emilia Figiel.

Paweł Passini– director, composer, live music
Zmicer Vaynouski– performer, author

Wojciech Kaproń– dancer, choreographer
