I Fought Piranhas

Maciej Kuźmiński Company

“Well I hold the rope
And I hold the sail
And I kept my papers
To keep from land in jail
And I fought piranhas
And I fought the cold
There was no one with me
I was all alone”

The White Stripes

      • A very interesting work […] taking up an important topic ( labelling it as “feminist” would be condemning it to a gender ghetto, it’s a general human problem ), the text enriched with a strong, expressive, consciously rigid movement.
