“Coming tomorrow” is all the perplexing telegram says. For a wealthy industrialist and his family, it turns out to be a wildly inadequate warning of the irresistible force that is about to rip through their structured lives. In a hypnotic series of near-wordless scenes, a mysterious visitor will seduce each member of the family one by one. Is this stranger a demon, or is he heaven-sent? Will he deliver salvation or destruction?

Inspired by Pier Paolo Pasolini’s 1968 cult film Teorema, the trailblazing multi-award winning Polish director Grzegorz Jarzyna has crafted a poetic and provocative piece of theatre that takes its audience on an exquisite voyage into the heart of Pasolini's modern masterpiece.

Last seen in Dublin with Festen at the Abbey Theatre in 2004, Jarzyna’s work has been astonishing audiences in Edinburgh, LA and beyond. T.E.O.R.E.M.A.T., described as the standout work of the 2010 New Zealand International Arts Festival, is a hypnotically beautiful exploration of the social, political and religious ideologies which made Pasolini one of the revolutionary thinkers of his time.

A near word-less production performed in Polish with English surtitles.

Contains nudity, scenes of a sexual nature and strong language.

In association with the Adam Mickiewicz Institute and Zbigniew Raszewski Theatre Institute.

TALKING THEATRE: Grzegorz Jarzyna in conversation with Thomas Conway. Oct 1, Post-show 9.45pm (approx.)
