Witajcie / Welcome A show by the brilliant Polish performer and dancer Aurora Lubos. “I am interested in a human being who is safe, but unwilling to accept others who are fleeing war, conflict, oppression, death and hunger. I'm interested in the situation of conflict, danger and suffering. And what that well-fed, happy, Western European man would feel in such a place, and what he would feel towards people whose daily reality is a struggle for life,” says the performer.

So many people: infants, children, young men and women, couples, families, elderly and disabled people, representing every stage of life and every type of person that you might meet in your neighbourhood." (fragment of text, volunteer, refugee camp in Dobova, Slovenia). One of the elements of the spectacle is the documentation of the performance From the water, which took place on the beach in Sopot, in October last year on Refugee Solidarity Day. It was my comment on migrants dying at sea, bringing the images into our reality, Polish, tangible. To increase empathy in viewers, unresponsive observers.
