In 1942 Bruno Schulz was murdered by a member of the Gestapo while going to buy a loaf of bread. 70 years later Teatru Welminski and Third Arrangement have created a show inspired by his stories, his drawings, his life and his most intimate thoughts. As the book opens, a forgotten world is abruptly brought to life. An old, dusty train station, a sanatorium lost in time, home to our hero’s father, his noisy and smelly bird cages and a group of wax figures abandoned by their creator… In this world we meet Josef, the alter ego of our author, Schulz. A son in search of memories of a lost father. We see as our hero traverses a reality ready-made for him and with each turn of the page we meet one of the multitude of ephemeral figures Schulz has placed in his path
