Aga Beaupré

The two-channel projection of Aga Beaupré is actually an author‘s play, in which both sides of the spectacle are getting unexpectedly interconnected. The main hero, an exemplary existential character on the edge of life and death, is gradually forced by his alter ego to ever-higher sacrifices to finally pay the highest prize. The audience, initially bored with no involvement, eventually becomes the executor of the mortal verdict. A blend of sound polished Polish and inspirations from Dostoyevsky, Bataille and Kafka follows up the best traditions of the existential theater, enriched with contemporary themes of virtual participation and alienation.
