The Teresa and Andrzej Welminski Foundation present The Comet
Inspired by the life and work of Bruno Schulz Directed by Teresa and Andrzej Welminski
20 – 24 March at 7pm preceded by Street Of Crocodiles
“It was the age of electricity and mechanics and a whole swarm of inventions was showered on the world by the resourcefulness of human genius…”
As news spreads across town that a fatal comet is hurtling towards the earth, the townspeople enter into a festive mood, excited for the coming catastrophe. Only a newcomer to the town, Uncle Edward, is prepared to sound the alarm…
A UK premiere inspired by the life and work of Bruno Schulz from acclaimed Polish directors Teresa and Andrzej Welminski. Based on The Comet and other stories by Bruno Schulz. With extraordinary humour and stagecraft, the Welminskis bring Schulz’s absurd, mythical, yet terrifyingly current tale to life. Informed by the work of revolutionary theatre practitioner Tadeusz Kantor.
Major figures in Polish and International arts, we are delighted to bring Teresa and Andrzej Welminski back to the London for the first time since 1982 And for the first time The Coronet at the Print Room has teamed up with KINOTEKA Polish Film Festival (7-29 March) to present these outstanding pieces.
