The show, directed by Paweł Świątek, is a special co-production between the Laźnia Nowa Theatre and the Divine Comedy Theatre Festival. Based on a play by Mateusz Pakuła, the performance inaugurates the festival. The text references the works of the legendary philosopher and ethnographer Claude Levi-Strauss. Sorrow of the Tropics presents stories of young Europeans who find their lives in the old world limiting so they decide to travel to distant realities. The director uses the technique of storytelling not only to depict the individual trajectories of his characters, but also to actively engage the audience in the process of analyzing such diverse phenomena as tourism, escapism, chasing new sensations, war reporting and spiritual and ideological transformation. The creators of the piece ask a number of questions that are supposed to get to the bottom of a phenomenon of recent years – travel and mobility as a philosophy of life. But they manage to steer clear of any straightforward explanations or social commentary.
