Performance synopsis

Plateau is a dance-theatre collaboration from choreographer Maciej Kuźmiński and director Paul Bargetto. This performance – extremely funny, controversial and partly censored – explores the shattered reality of contemporary Poland, set against a backdrop of surveillance capitalism, conspiracy theory and religious fanaticism. With a mix of high theory and absurd humour, the piece probes deeply into traumas and taboos to reveal a nation in the middle of a nervous breakdown.
