At the origins of the project, Tanya was looking for a performer to double her in her search for making a theatre performance inspired by the poem The Wasteland by T S Eliot. The idea was also to see how two different languages would be able to communicate together on stage, and the choice of Krystyna, a leading actress on the polish theatre scene became evident as they shared their views on the theatre they both loved to make. After several weeks of having completely integrated their movement in the space, I joined them as their outside eye, trying to decipher what was their meeting point, and started to work on a form that would enable that meeting to be shared with an audience.

The band we have created is a jazz band, performing theatre.
