Jan Klata Jan Klata

Transfer !


Since H for Hamlet, which dealt with the Solidarnosc movement, Jan Klata has been combining repertoire theater, rock’n roll aesthetics and a documentary approach to draw a sharp criticism of contemporary Poland. He renews this confrontation with history in Transfer! and L’Affaire Danton.
The former takes up the Yalta summit in 1945, confronting the meeting of Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin with events taking place in a town affected by the decisions taken, Wroclaw. While the three statesmen preside over Europe’s fate, a choir composed of survivors of these events voices some of the tragedies which ensued.
