Three victims of unhappy love come back at the scene of the crime, where each of them was a culprit. They meticulously carry out a forensic flashback. They try to make a painful settlement in which there is no clear division between the culprits and victims. After death, they get an illusory chance of happiness that they have not been able to experience during their lifetime. It is the lust for fulfilment, love, that imprisoned them in the world – a trap from which they cannot free after the tragic death.
‘Savagery of posthumous habits’ of Bolesław Leśmian is a poetic drama of passion, full of young energy of the youngest actors of Kochanowski. It is a story of a murder, the witness of which was not only love, but also hatred, lust, jealousy and betrayal that do not allow the main characters to find peace today.

THE MEDIA ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
Young actors face with great effects highly difficult poem construction by Leśmian. Especially stunning are two actresses. Magdalena Maścianica – subtle but determined as Krzemina and Monika Stanek – go-getting, ruthless and seductive on the borderline of vulgarity as Marcjanna. They perfectly reveal all the psychological nuances of the game of love, with inseparable elements of jealousy, desire, rejection, and competition.
