Krystian Lupa – a controversial and probably the most outstanding living Polish theater director of internationally recognized plays. His accolades include the Europe Theater Prize, the Nestroy-Theaterpreis, he has also been awarded with the French Order of Arts and Letters.
“Let’s try to jump into the well” is a road movie that has only one location – the stage. Whether it presents a road to failure or success is irrelevant. The audience can watch the rehearsals for Kafka’s “The Trial”. They can observe the creative process – often ambiguous, sometimes incomprehensible. A process we have to judge for ourselves.
Lupa invites his actors to jump with him “into a well”, at the bottom of which no revelation awaits.
