Bruno Schulz
A prose-writer, literary critic, graphic artist and painter. Polish Jew from now Ukrainian Drohobycz, where he was killed by the fascist from SS in a ghetto manhunt in 1942. Acknowledged as one of the best Polish writers before World War II, but nowadays less popular than Gombrowicz or Witkacy. Many have heard of him, but few know him.

More info:

His fabulous world full of childhood's memories and metaphysical occurrences now returns in performance 'Songs of Schulz'. The author of lyrics will guide you - like Virgil from 'The Divine Comedy' - through meanders of this strange reality; common yearnings, desires and fears compose curious stories, where the sequence of events is disturbed.

Don't be misled by the title. Here myths of Drohobycz are driven by rock expression and obsessions of Schulz are wrapped by electro trance; and the air carries the voice of FEMALE - so important character in visions of this inconspicuous teacher from the provincial town...
