Poland's Teatr Biuro Podrozy make their Brighton debut with this extraordinary large-scale spectacle, a moving insight into the lives of ordinary citizens trapped by war. Enduring constant incursions, endless humiliations and the ever-present threat of violence, we see the occupants of a city that could be anywhere and that feels very familiar from our daily news cycle. 

Under threat by soldiers roaring through their lives on motorbikes, intimidated by the extraordinary menace of flaming stilt walkers burning all before them, Teatr Biuro Podrozy use light, sound and pyrotechnics to conjure the visceral reality of war. However, this dystopian tale is also a moving celebration of the resilience of communities and their extraordinary capacity for survival.

Acclaimed for their seminal open-air production, Carmen Funebre, Teatr Biuro Podrozy return to the UK with this critically acclaimed sequel. To a soundtrack of plaintive cello and metallic riffs, this brave and experimental company once again remind us how fragile and yet how strong we are in the face of adversity
