The text has a classical structure and despite the fact that it describes incredibly ferocious scenes, it has an unexpected effect. As if increasing the kindness in the heart. It's not contemporary documentary theatre, which I am not very fond of, but it uses some elements of it. 
 

Our bet is to succeed in making a construction capable of creating an atmosphere that suggests that what we see on stage are the souls of the dead, that the characters come from the abyss.  I don't think you have seen dead characters up to now. That is why we must think of Kantor. Life can only be suggested by the absence of life, he said. There was no psychology in his theatre. the image of a dead dog is painful because it reminds us the living animal. Only then, through contrast, through counterpoint, we can truly appreciate the living.

 

The first death, that of our friend and colleague Jakub Kac, is the most important. This is why the question " Who killed Jakub Kac?" is always asked. "How could we kill our own brother?" [...]

 

The performance is constructed in a concert-like manner. In other words, my life is a performance: I go on stage and tell not play my life. All the events on stage represent a concert in the rock songs have been replaced with shocking stories. [...]

 

The play is written in 14 lessons, reminiscent of the Stations of the Cross, each character going through the 14 stages of the Calvary, understood as the history of the 20th century. What happened in Auschwitz is sacred; Following that episode, the history of the world could not be the same. Millions of innocent people were killed there. The sin of the world can only be redeemed through the death of the lamb. In the play, the people committing the crime do not realize what they are doing, that their actions are evil. This is the effect of the text and our production is under the sign "Behold the Lamb of God, behold him who takes away the sins of the world".
