Sonnets – age of hypochondriac [PREMIERE]

18:00 - 23.09.2023 - free admission / registrations - more

A performance about fear, the need for care, an attempt to find solace in the panic of everyday life that surrounds us.

Dressed in an exquisite form, the work, combined with self-ironic, humorous references to the panic fears of each character, will create a vibrating world full of lightness and absurdity.

“Terenia, give me some water
and bromine powder,
because I feel the globe coming.”

Eliza Orzeszkowa, By the Nemunas

"The strongest remedy against hypochondria and all imaginary ailments is actually objectification of oneself, just as the main cause of hypochondria and its essence is only the objectification of all things, that is, the physical "I" has taken over everything, that it becomes the only think, idée fixe, and that everything else falls under this category. That is why I have always found that the more practical a man's life is, i.e., the more it draws him outward, the more secure he is against hypochondria. Practicing doctors are the best
proof. They are constantly preoccupied with diseases, and diseases and ailments eventually become the main focus of their thinking. The same, then, should very easily become the main focus of their selves, and thus all physicians should eventually become hypochondriacs. And yet we see that practicing physicians almost never suffer from hypochondria. Why? Because from the very beginning they are accustomed to objectify all their sufferings, thanks to which they end up objectifying themselves and their own ailments, separating them from their true "I" and making them objects of the outside world…
