Not Only

Music theatre project with the aim of staging the poetry, manifestos and the other writings of the Italian, Russian and Polish Futurists from the early 20th century (as well as the anti-Futurist writer, S.I. Witkiewicz, from the same period). Recreating the revolutionary spirit of their original performances was, however, only a starting point or a pretext to have a much closer look at our contemporary society through the ‚prism’ of the Futurists’ often radical ideology and aesthetics.
