Memories of the director’s own experiences of military recruitment assessments are used to redefine existing concepts to create a queer fantasy system. Written for four actors and a pianist, his real-life story becomes the impulse for a performative, camp variety piece. Nijinsky’s Afternoon of the Faun comes to life in the men's dressing room, along with Moniuszko's patriotic Polish folk songs, and Shostakovich's Battle Symphony soundtracks aerobic exercises. Winner of the Best Artistic Team award at the 2017 Divine Comedy Festival (Krakow).
