As a part of the “Festiwal Prapremier. Pola walki 2023” a stage performance will be held at the Municipal Gallery bwa in Bydgoszcz.
“The Vanishing” by Tomislav Zajec talks about a modern family that appears to be harmonious, yet under the surface there are gaps through which we gradually discover what has happened in the past. Karlo is a renowned scientist, model husband and father, but he is more than just that. We discover his predatory nature through Marko, a boy with hearing impairment whose inner hell is covered with silence, slowly turning him into a disappearing person. Omission, indifference, escape from reality are just some of the elements of this soul-stirring work. Through several mutually intertwined lines of the plot and relationships, Tomislav Zajec gradually builds dramatic tension, revealing the truth about the abuse in the science boy camp. In scenes in which dialogues change with monologs in temporal discontinuity, Zajec builds an unusual dramatic structure that unfolds before us like a crime novel.
