Koło kwintowe (The Circle of Fifths) is a diploma performance by the fourth year students of The Ludwik Solski State Drama School in Krakow, directed by Aleksandra Popławska, who in the process of looking for material decided to stage the unconventional novel by Szymon Bogacz. One winter night, somewhere in the countryside, with a blizzard approaching, people travelling by the country railway are forced to stop. After an intervention made by the crisis committee, they find accommodation at a nearby school where the local community provides them with shelter and hot meals. In musical terms the title of the show means a collection of all the minor and major tones presented in the form of a circle. Using this pattern, Bogacz and Popławska create a cycle of mini-tales, where each of the characters gets a chance to present the events from their own perspective. Eleven delicately interconnected shorts reveal a variety of staging techniques as well as the impressive range of acting skills of Krakow students.
