He created an integral myth of Cthulhu, ancient old gods whose civilization preceded the appearance of man on Earth and who return to the horror of the characters-narrators of the story. But the horror does not only come from the actions of the mythical figures, but the flaws and cracks visible in the narrators, making up the portrait of the contemporary society. We keep asking ourselves: what awaits us? What's next?

The Michał Borczuch's show, inspired by a horror seen in the particular vision of the reality, seems to give an answer but we can't tell you what it is. You have to see it yourself.

The production is inspired by the most original stories by H. P. Lovecraft – The Beast in the Cave, The Colour Out of Space, The Music of Erich Zann, The Whisperer in Darkness, The Shadow Out of Time, The Call of Cthulhu.
