ARTISTS IN ACTION

Libera wrestling at the theatre

"The battle of good vs. evil" is the title of a performative action by Zbigniew Libera that was part of a 24-hour-long art project "Long cycle" in the national theatre Stary Teatr in Kraków. Two pairs of wrestlers fought non stop over night on June 5 in the theatre foyer. Just like in ancient times, covered in oils and half naked, the warriors were part of an atavistic spectacle of competition and corporeality.
