Piotr Mateusz Wach, following in the tracks of the spectacle entitled “Richard. A Body in Anger”, has decided to face up to another legendary Shakespearean protagonist. Inspired by the Japanese butō dance, the artist sacrifices his body to create a complicated psychological construct of the figure of the great Roman leader, presenting him in an extreme and final situation.
