DURATION

180 min.

Imagine that, as part of an art project, somewhere on the way between Krakow and Wrocław, a camera has been set up in the bushes in front of a gas station. The frame shows a fragment of the building with the pumps, a bit of the landscape, sometimes people appear. For two thousand hours the camera records reality. The recorded material undergoes artistic interpretation, the montage reveals an algorithm of similarities between people and situations. The aim of the Provincial Actors: The Doppelgänger project is to unite two acting ensembles – the National Old Theatre in Krakow and the Polish Underground Theatre in Wrocław. Both theatres have recently been through a struggle to maintain artistic independence, to carry on working, using various strategies of resistance with varying consequences. In his project Borczuch poses the question about the place of the theatre, the role and condition of an actor, but also invokes the present time of uncertainty and a state of expectation.
