The new work by Maciej Kuźmiński (in his third collaboration with the director Paul Bargetto) offers an existential meditation on the near and distant future, dream logic, and infinity. Balancing between the performing and visual arts, the piece conjures a house of mirrors constructed of an inner, infinite self, where crossing the boundaries of mortality and perception becomes the ultimate goal of existence. Inspired by the science fiction of Michel Houellebecq and the philosophical writings of Gilles Deleuze, the piece touches on the themes of transhumanism, evolution, and genetic memory.
