Egzorcyzmy [Exorcisms] is Tadeusz Janiszewski’s original multimedia monodrama, which touches upon the problem of constantly re-emerging intolerance, xenophobia and hatred towards the incomprehensible, the unnamed, or simply, alien. When and why are people exorcised, those who think differently, who come from other cultures or hold different religious or general beliefs? The show intends to provide a connection between generations: to provoke discussion and the sharing of experience. It has been created in the process of a dialogue with the audience, during open rehearsals and post-performance meetings.
