Artistic Director of Warsaw's Teatr Studio, Natalia Korczakowska is recognized as one of the most exciting theater artists emerging from Eastern Europe. Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz (popularly known as Witkacy) was a Polish playwright, painter, novelist, philosopher and avant-gardist. In WITKACY | Two-Headed Calf
, a company of Polish and CalArts artists explore Witkacy's work against the endless and wild California nature. The plot unfolds through the journey of a neurotic boy and his family from New Guinea through Sydney to the desert.
Witkacy believed that nature can be a source of metaphysical experience that gives us a chance to protect our individuality from the soulless social machine of Western civilization. WITKACY | Two-Headed Calf
is a journey from Poland to the California desert – and also a journey into the depths of oneself.
