The real meets the unreal. Drama is a walk into the dark side of romanticism, a dive into a gloomy forest full of phantasms and fog. Inspired by the first romantic ballet La Sylphide, Paweł Sakowicz, in a duo with Karolina Kraczkowska, explores the real and unreal, own and appropriated, physical and ephemeral. What is romanticism today? What happens to us when we abandon sensibility and belief in material reality to set off on a journey into the darkness?
