The Maidens of Wilko

18:00 - 13.10.2019 - more

When do we decide about ourselves? What are personal freedom and our life-altering decisions? Agnieszka Glińska’s performance weaves the tissue of Iwaszkiewicz’s story into the present-day context of, among others, the above questions.

[…] he left before he found out that none of what a person decides and consciously carries out amounts to anything, and that everything important happens by accident, staying somewhere there behind, trailing after us.

– Jarosław Iwaszkiewicz, The Maidens of Wilko

Visiting Wilko after fifteen years, Wiktor rifles through his memories and attempts to reconstruct his own self. Meeting women from his past makes him face the void and vanity of his own existence, as the wartime experience has robbed him of his capacity to feel. But in this play, the eponymous maidens – the sisters from Wilko – are not just a phantasm of femininity and a projection of the protagonist – they acquire their own voices and identities. Agnieszka Glińska and Marta Konarzewska consciously appropriate Iwaszkiewicz’s narrative and give the floor to the female characters in the story.

We see Wiktor through their eyes, and we also find out how the passing of time has altered them. Where does life begin and end? When do we decide about ourselves? What are personal freedom and our life-altering decisions? Agnieszka Glińska’s performance weaves the tissue of Iwaszkiewicz’s story into the present-day context of, among others, the above questions.
