    THE CHRONIC LIFE in Szczecin


    Wednesday, October 19, 2011 - Friday, October 21, 2011

     

    The Chronic Life

     

    19, 20 and 21 October 2011

    at 20.00

    Pleciuga Puppet Theatre

    Square Teatralny 1, Szczecin 71-0403

     

    Dedicated to Anna Politkovskaya and Natalia Estemirova

    Russian writers and human right activists, murdered by anonymous thugs in 2006

    and 2009 for their opposition to the Chechnyan conflict.

     

    CHARACTERS: a Black Madonna, the widow of a Basque officer, a Chechnyan refugee, a Rumanian housewife, a Danish lawyer, a rock musician from the Faroe Islands, a Colombian boy searching for his father disappeared in Europe, an Italian street violinist, two mercenaries.

     

     

    The Chronic Life takes place simultaneously in different countries of Europe in 2031, after the third civil war. Individuals and groups with different backgrounds come together and challenge each other driven by uprooting war and unemployment. A boy arrives from Latin America in search of his father who has inexplicably disappeared. "Stop searching for your father" people tell him while escorting him from door to door.

     

    It is neither knowledge nor innocence that saves the boy. A new ignorance helps him to discover his door. Amid the bewilderment of all of us who no longer believe in the unbelievable: that just one victim is worth more than any value. More than God.
