Author

Jakub Wassermann / Grzegorz Niziołek

DURATION

150 min.

The story of Kaspar Hauser (told unusually, for backwards), a teenager deserted by his guardian in the streets of Nurenberg, nicknamed “the orphan of Europe”, shocked the inhabitants of the Old Continent in the 19th century. He was placed in a dark dungeon, passed from hand to hand like an object, taken home by subsequent bourgeois families to be thrown out of the house without remorse... A toy, an oddity, an object of study. Kaspar Hauser's destiny was fulfilled in front of satiated and satisfied townspeople, who suppressed the thought that the perpetrators of the crimes against Hauser were none other than themselves.

In the story that dates back 200 years the makers of the performance are trying to find a premonition of the fate of millions of 20th and 21st century people – refugees, victims of systems, stateless persons, whose number keeps rising.
