Sound of a coffin lid being moved, ray of light getting insight through a narrow chink – too strong to recognize the faces of people standing on the grave. The shapes are slowly getting familiar, voices are talking about about fulfilled destiny, about defense of dignity and freedom, about a great loss and world turning grey, about creativity, which gives strength to last and the same creativity, which is supposed to scoff at Poles and Catholicism... The voice of a farwelled poet entwines with changing landscapes built on associations of characters appearing on stage. The multidimensional stage – half real, half virtual – is a place where physical and metaphysical worlds meet, place in which human being and movable, virtual pictures coexist... accompanied by live trio without cor, without drum and without viola.
