The "Street of Crocodiles" is inspired by the life and stories of Polish writer Bruno Schulz (1892-1942).

The play creates a vision of provincial Poland in the early part of the century as a restless ocean of unending flux.

The "Three Lives of Lucie Cabrol" is adapted from John Berger's short story.

The story becomes an unsentimental evocation of peasant life, a hymn to the tenacity of love and a Brechtian fable about the world's unfairness.

In "Mnemonic" an ice-preserved body - from 5,200 years ago - forms the central image of Theatre de Complicite's meditation on memory and morality.
