It is said that you can always hear music in Roma families, even when there is nothing to eat, because it makes life more bearable.
A show of theatre and dance.
From magic, rites, music, song, dance and travel to fraud, thefts and persecution.
A story told from different perspectives.
A bit magical and, at the same time, emphatically literal.
About the Gypsies? About people?
Come meet some eccentrics, strangers, artists?
We want to understand something about ourselves by looking at others.
Kaj Dzias presented by the Polish theatre company Living Space Theatre is a colourful mixture of theatre, original choreography, live music and singing, inspired by and dedicated to the Roma culture. The performance presents centuries-old Roma beliefs, customs and traditions, seen through the prism of human values such as humanity, tolerance and the acceptance of differences.
