śniąc\ dreaming

The film 'Dreaming' is an artistic record of the dreams of a therapeutic group 'The different, the strange, the same' operating at the Polkowickie Centrum Usług Zdrowotnych [Health Services Centre in Polkowice]. Within this group people who have experienced mental breakdowns, as well as somatic and mental illnesses use the theatre as a medium of personal developement. Having the possibility to express oneself through theatre and film has a therapuetic effect, as it helps to overcome one’s fears, anxiety, makes it easier to open oneself to the world, to be closer to another human being...
Together, we have recorded their dreams...

'No one has any doubt that schizophrenia is an illness: it is proved by the vastness of pain of people suffering from it. Nevertheless, it is undeniable that there is something noble to it – namely, specifically human qualities tend to expand in it to a catastrophical extent.'
A. Kępiński
