Coproduction with the Theatre of Contemporary Arts in Szczecin

LORD JIM by Joseph Conrad – the novel about honour and a conscience divided Poles during the whole 20th century. For those, who died with Jim’s name on their lips, it became an inspiration for an insurgent fight, for others it was an evidence of „moral shallowness of capitalism”, it engaged distaste, it praised „slaves’ faithfulness”.
What does this great Polish-British writer want to tell us today and how well do we understand each other? Where are modern readers and what kind of problems do they face? What are Lord Jim’s dilemmas and why are they so important for rightist political movements? What is the result of reading the novel?

The performance’s authors invite us to a poetic confrontation with Conrad’s text and promise that after getting to know their interpretation everyone will want to read LORD JIM again.
