After a foray into the works of Marcel Proust, Krzystof Warlikowski returns to one of his favorite playwrights, Hanokh Levin, and captures his outlandish and biting eloquence in a loose but brilliantly devastating way.

“We don’t leave”, wrote Rimbaud, as if leaving was definitively impossible. Why leave, after all? And to go where? There are many reasons as the characters in this adaptation of Hanokh Levin’s black humor play - originally entitled Suitcase Packers: A Comedy with Eight Funerals - would have us believe. This departure also signals a return for Warlikowski whose French audiences first discovered his unparalleled style in 2003 in a staging of Krum, also by Hanokh Levin. The characters’ nagging obsession to steal away has to be a reflection of the director’s frustration with the increasingly oppressive political direction that modern-day Poland is taking. This chronic dissatisfaction finds a scathing and funny outlet graced with liberating laughter.Hugues Le Tanneur
