Teatr im. Wilama Horzycy (Main auditorium), pl. Teatralny 1

Earphones: Polish, English   

The performance is based on a dialogue through letters exchanged over a period of six months between the writer and nihilist Michel Houellebecq and the leftist philosopher Bernard-Henri Lévy. Right from the start, the viewer receives a strong dose of mutual criticism, insults and funny jokes, each adversary mauling the op- ponent with powerful punches. This fiery exchange contains themes both deeply philosophical and humanly down-to-earth. The adversaries confront their divergent views on Sartre, Kafka, sex, the father-son relationship, the political left, and the existence of God. On one side of the battlefield we see a confident, sun-tanned intellectual and on the other – a depressed novelist with a perpetual cigarette in the corner of his mouth – both exchanging their divergent worldviews, like highly flammable substances just waiting for a spark starting a fire. Jan Mikulášek production of Lost Illusions was featured at the Kontakt festival in 2022.
