based on the reportage of Marta Abramowicz
RESULTS OF 1st edition
The stories of the heroines of Marta Abramowicz’s reportage ‘Nuns Leave in Silence’ are the starting point of the performance. They become a bridge between observation of the actresses’ performance and the personal opinion the actresses have of the characters they interpret. The main subject of the play is the calling, understood both in the context of the sacred and the profane, through service to God, and ending on the mission and the ethos of the actor.
During the performance, the audience will witness creation of an emotional bond between women who are initially strangers; the actress and the character she interprets. The performance raises questions about the essence of identity, metaphysics and the widely understood humanism. Theatre is an ideal place for analysis of a topic combining reality with fiction, spirituality with secularity, performance with a reportage.
The play is performed as part of the 1st edition of the Modelatornia competition. Both the subject matter and the form, above all based on the actresses’ search, amazed the judges of the Competition, who unanimously decided to distinguish the project of Daria Kopiec and Martyna Lechman.
