The Cycle is a multimedia show combining spatial installations, acting and computer animation. It is a reference to regularity, to the repetitiveness of certain elements of everyday life, to compulsions and to the cyclic nature of dreams that affect our personalities and existence. The show comprises a “cycle” of images that we have always dreamt together; images extracted from the subconscious, symbolising human anxieties, weaknesses and desires.
Teatr USTA USTA REPUBLIKA has existed since 2000. Nearly every project created by the company is a site-specific theatrical experiment. Republika Usta Usta has staged its shows in the basements of the Centre for Contemporary Arts, in the attic of the Poznań Society of Friends of Sciences, in an underground car park, in a night-time labyrinth of urban streets, and within the virtual space of telephone connections. Leaving the theatre building enables a multilayered play on urban space and traditional narration. At present, the company works in an old residential building at 11 Gwarna Street, under the Republika Sztuki Tłusta Langusta project. It shares this venue with several other theatre companies: Circus Ferus, Porywacze Ciał and Radykalna Frakcja Medialna Mazut.
