Balladyna

Author: Juliusz Słowacki

: Paweł Świątek

The MOS Stage - The MOS Stage

Is the fight for rightful ideas worth murder?

Juliusz Słowacki's ‘Balladyna’ is a story about taking power in the face of the end of the world. A world in which it is too late to establish a new order. It is also a story about the proximity of the world of nature, which nowadays claims its initial rights more forcefully than ever before. Finally, it is a story about a world of women that has taken hold in an era in which it is too late for everything.

Performance with English subtitles.

In Alejandro Moreno Jashés' Black Parrots, the protagonist's eyes at the moment of ecstasy or a heart attack refuse to cooperate and, turning their backs on the world, begin their journey deep into the human body. However, there is no inner light in the human body, only darkness, which – contrary to the logic of sight – becomes a source of subsequent ecstasies for the two eye balls.
