Tap-dance, jazz, mime and an expressive visual style all create an exciting and intimate theatrical experience. The story reveals human relationships and the international community's attitude towards Nazi Germany just before World War II. In the words of Charlie Chaplin, "We're all Monarchs dethroned".
Started up in 1991, Teatr Wiczy is a group which originates in the alternative punk scene. Its performances are most often stage-shows and open-air events. Wiczy employs improvisation elements, performance-art, the happening convention, as well as avant - vaudeville.
