Tyski Festiwal Performance

“Hourglass” (“Klepsydra”) is an intimate physical theatre solo project by actress Monika Wachowicz. The word “klepsydra” in Polish language contains two significances. It means “an hourglass”, but also “obituary notice”. The performance is almost non-verbal solo, joining the poetic of theatre of body, gestures and emotions as well as elements of dance theatre.
The show is a kind of a mourning ritual, last meeting, longing. In the show we can find references to the artistic works of Milan Kundera and Krzysztof Kieślowski.
