The performance "WSZĘDODOMNI / PANHABITANTS" is a result of a project created in 2013, by CHOREA artists and independent artists from Lodz with the residents of a center for homeless people in Lodz.
Artists and animators from CHOREA tried to get inside this difficult social area, and to identify life circumstances of this special community, they also tried to activate and motivate participants of the project. Meetings, discussions and regular theater workshops helped many people to externalize their own judgments, emotions and artistic skills in various art fields.
In terms of this project we organized a musical concert, work-in-progress shows of our joint work, we made a film about our actions and created a democratic performance, a unique theatrical experiment.

The director’s idea is focused around the notion of a border. However, this is not a play about the external aspects of this problem, but about the borders that decide what is visible inside a human. It is about the borders that are stronger than physical or territorial hindrances. About the borders that are hard to move, break, destroy. It is about the borders that limit people in their thinking, acts and desires.
Home, town, country, world – they all have their borders. What happens to a man who comes from the ordinary “here and now” into a new, strange place? Is the change of citizenship only a legal act? How do we act in relation to the Other One? Is our communication based on openness or usurpation of borders? Where is the line between the public and the private? Between the local and the global? Between normal and weird? Between freedom and imprisonment? Between war and peace? Between body and soul? Carnality and elevation? Everyone can continue this series and direct these questions against themselves.
