Tango

Tango, directed by Piotr Ratajczak, is about a clash between viewpoints and value systems. Arthur strives to organize the world around clearly defined rules. Eleonora and Stomil, however, believe in unlimited individual freedom, art and experiment. Who is today’s Eddie and how big is his influence on the political and social order? Mrożek’s Tango is a ‘classic’ Polish play still open to new interpretations. The creators of this performance consider how relevant Tango is to contemporary Poland and what is happening here. They explore tensions between generations and social groups. The family becomes a lens through which today’s unrest, the struggle for dominance and attempts to enforce a ‘one and one only’ moral standard to our lives can be observed. Who is right in this socio-political conflict? Perhaps for us the most relevant and significant words are those of Stomil: “Everyone has the right to their own happiness“.

Running time: 1 hour 20 minutes (without interval)
