When have you first realised that you are not black? "Black skin, white masks" is a project that returns to the roots of Polish ... blackness. To the hidden stories of African slaves at Polish manor houses in the 17th and 18th centuries. And it moves in time to today - free from racism and prejudice. But is it really as free as we think?
"Black skin, white masks" is the winning project of the 3rd edition of the Modelatornia Competition.

Media about the performance
Wiktor Bagiński and the entire acting team create a post-documentary theater, which is a scream of disagreement with the growing acceptance of racism in Poland. And great glory for theme!

Although Bagiński's performance sometimes seems nonchalant and underdeveloped, in fact it has a very thoughtful construction supported by the involvement of the actors. And the diagnosis coming from the scene is probably that nanorasism is not only ubiquitous, but also so strongly imprinted on the socio-cultural reality that it is acquired in the process of socialization.
