A woman whose feelings no one understands, a person who has wrapped your packet of raisins in a far-off country whose name you don’t know, a traveller who waits for the bus in front of you, a man who goes for a dive in a river… These are all characters in Fantazja, and yet we don’t get to see them onstage. They only exist in our imagination. In this performance, Polish theatre author Anna Karasińska explores theatre as a place where fiction becomes reality. What contract do the audience and the artists conclude to bring a world into existence onstage that temporarily suspends our disbelief? Does our imagination have limits? Are there phenomena or things that we cannot imagine onstage? Using a live voice-over, Karasińska directs the actors in a rapid mix of minimalistic and humoristic scenes, in which improvisation plays the leading role.
