After premiere of CHILDREN SEE GHOSTS by Mariusz Grzegorzek on the Main Stage of the Jaracza Theatre in Lodz. Upcoming dates: 25, 26 February and 20, 21, 22 March.

UNUSUAL, poignantly BEAUTIFUL, so SAD that at times it is almost CHEERFUL show directed by Mariusz Grzegorzek. Fear and emotion. Intense theatrical images, a bravura cast, a lot of hypnotic music - from the charts, through folk songs to medieval chorals. No one else does such theatre anywhere else! COME !!!

CHILDREN SEE GHOSTS is an attempt to develop a convention in professional theatre, which director Mariusz Grzegorzek successfully explored in two diploma performances by students of the Acting Department of the Lodz Film School staged at the Studyjny Theatre: "Fever" and "Don't eat it! It’s for Christmas!".

The performance is a collage of music, movement and theatre, a partly improvised attempt to answer the question: What does it mean to be truly adult? Does getting rid of the inner child, focusing on self-control, taking responsibility for oneself and others, have to lead to the abandonment of inner sensitivity, empathy and intuition? Do fairy-tales contain deeper and more disturbing meanings than just simple guidelines: How to be a formatted member of the family and society?
