The latest play by one of the most prominent, award-winning Polish theatre directors, Krzysztof Warlikowski, is based on two very different texts – Johan van Druten’s I’m a Camera and the screenplay by John Cameron Mitchell for his movie Shortbus. The two distinct historical realities channeled here – Weimar Germany prior to the Nazi takeover, and post-9/11 New York – are virtual laboratories of time and space. Warlikowski investigates, together with the audience, sexual fears and phobias as well as repressed desires and passions. These two worlds serve as a mirror in which today’s Warsaw can see itself. The director questions the limits of artistic and other forms of expression as well as the processes that establish social and cultural norms. Warlikowski and the Nowy Teatr company use the aesthetics of cabaret with specific intent, since it allows them to not only break the staged illusion and expose theatrical conventions but also to actively involve the spectators in the process of analyzing sexual and cultural taboos. At the same time, the cabaret art form helps to discover the mechanisms responsible for confining the individual within an oppressive system, where the only hope for transformation, it seems, is art itself and creative freedom.
