The performance inspired by the personal experience of the creators and Anna Goc’ documentary “Solitude”.
I am deeply concerned and embarrassed by the state of the linguistic community. I have the impression that using words and their meanings with increasing intensity becomes an instrument of collective confrontation, a fight of all with everyone. We are not building room to meet in dialogue, respect and mutual understanding. We gave permission to live in a world built of fear and prejudice, in a world where the appropriation of language takes place in the fact of taking away the free speech
I invited deaf people to the performance. Among them there is also one blind person. At first, I felt ashamed of how I react and what I know about them.Today I would like to shout: I choose silence! But how to shout such a confession?
