Zamenhof Project

Breaking the Codes

In this large-scale, 1,5h long interdisciplinary piece inspired by the ideas and the life of a linguistic genius Ludwik Zamenhof, Bielski constructs a world which surprises, challenges and confuses. The international cast, consisting of actors, musicians and dancers who between them speak seven languages, involves the audience in an exploration of communication (or miscommunication) and language. An event in which music and visual elements such as theater, contemporary dance, installation, video, set design, costumes and light are completely integrated. The traditional separation of stage and audience is also totally deconstructed.
