This play by the writer/director team of Jolanta Janiczak and Wiktor Rubin, based on the Virginie Despentes novel of the same title, is a production of the Juliusz Słowacki Theatre in Kraków. Interweaving elements of theater, happenings and film, Janiczak and Rubin bring out the novel’s complex layers of symbolism and meaning, creating a touching portrait of modern society. The titular protagonist gets evicted from his apartment and packs everything he owns into one suitcase. In his search for a place to stay for the night, he visits old friends and total strangers. His suitcase (or its contents) draws a great deal of interest from the people around him; eventually everyone seems to be after it. The underlying theme is the search for a space that could connect people of different beliefs, life experiences and socio-economic backgrounds. The music that emanates from Vernon, grounding him, seems to be a response to the unnatural desires and unmet needs of the characters he meets; it enables them to let go of their habitual behaviors. Guided by Despentes’ sense of human empathy, Janiczak and Rubin are determined to restore our lost faith in the power of community and open the audience up to the worlds of others, suggesting that the ideals of equality and brotherhood might just be attainable.
