This extraordinary play premiered at Polish Television Studio in Wrocław. Due to the remodeling of the Musical Theatre at that time, all performances took place at makeshift stages, which were not designed to hold theatre performances. Due to a specific position of the audience, the stage became both the projection screen and the scenography.
The play is set in 1835 and tells the story of a young man, Pierre Riviere, who murders his entire family and, after being captured and sentenced to death, gives a detailed account of the events leading to the crime. The set design and lighting in the play are primarily created with projections on a 180m2 white floor. The costumes, props and make-up are white providing a contrastive background for projections.
