This year 104 years will pass since the tragic events of the year 1915. Teatr ZAR with the project Armine, Sister, dedicated to the history and culture of Armenian people and their near-extermination at the beginning of the 20th century will continue the uneasy task of bringing back the memory of Armenian Genocide to the world.

The action performed by butoh dancer Daisuke Yoshimoto according to the concept of Jarosław Fret is a question, how can a performer bear witness and become a testimony of events that are outside his experience? The performative action is a manifestation of the new domain of Teatr ZAR's work: Witness/Action. It was presented in Wroclaw in the days of Armine, Sister premiere in November 2013: 13-17 and in April 2015: 22-27.

Medeas. On Getting Across

"Medeas" is an unbroken sequence of actors actions and installations that coalesce into a poetic vision of rejection. The musical dramaturgy is built around Arabic, Persian and Kurdish songs sung by guest singers from Tehran and Istanbul. Their voices are surrounded and contrasted with a sea of Latin confraternities. In November "Medeas.On Getting Across once again will be presented in Wrocław.
