TEMPTATION – Ghosts, Refugees from Reality
Inspired by the work of Witkiewicz
Quo Vadis presents together with Sivuun Ensemble a fresco of movement, poetry, theatre, music, images and messages. Temptation is inspired by the work of Witkiewicz. Temptation brings to the stage 8 ghosts trying to communicate and connect with the living ones. Using four barricades the ghosts build spaces and create frontiers, the light and sound is made from the stage. The magic of scene makes ghosts visible for the living ones, and the traces of life and the traces of the life that never happened can be shared.

Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz (24 February 1885 – 18 September 1939) , commonly known as Witkacy, was a Polish writer, painter, philosopher, playwright, novelist, and photographer active in the interwar period. He is considered as one of the most important authors in Polish modernism and creator of absurd drama.
Temptation is inspired by the work of Witkiewicz and it combines a grotesk style and humour, visual arts and mythical approach to Witkacy’s philosophy: the human existential curse is, that the living are dead, but the dead must keep on living..
