This production uses the fragments of Sarah Kane’s plays, referring to the Greek myth of Fedra. It presents the scene of human emotions interacting, like betrayal, power of desire, anger, small-mindedness and meanness. The protagonists imported from Sarah Kane’s drama are our contemporaries, whereas at the same time they are placed in some fictional reality, escaping definition. The kingdom ruled by Theseus is a land of spiritual emptiness and alienation. Its artificially maintained order deteriorates. It is a land inhabited by people plunged in despair and helplessness when confronted with the power of their desires. Fedra’s Love is a creative interpretation of a play written by the British playwright. It can be perceived as the director’s polemics with the poetics of ‘new brutalism’ and superficial reading of Sarah Kane achieved by means of the incredible concentration of crime, violence and atrocities. “The director shortens the drama, purifies it, getting rid of its dirt, enriches it with Euripides, Shakespeare, Herbert. He introduces a distance to the presented events. Fedra’s first words announce that we are going to witness her nightmare. What the audience sees does not have to happen.” Ewa Podgajna, „Gazeta Wyborcza”
