"Flat" is a kind of a game played with the concepts of time and gravity, as something that modifies us, because these phenomena are inevitably present in our lives. A surreal stage design, within which the main character is placed, opens space for the metaphorical interpretation of the play and establishes a poetic distance to these topics. At the same time the reality of the very performance tells its own tale: the actor really struggles with gravity, time flows equally for the spectators and for him, and even if it standing on the wall at an angle of 90 degrees does not belong to everyday needs, his adaptability resembles the skills that each of us must master in to maintain the structure of our social life.
