Summary/Abstract: A report from the Malta Festival in Poznań (24-29.06.2013). Lemańska closely examines the subject proposed by Romeo Castellucci, curator of this year's festival – the coexistence of man and machine. She describes this director's play, The Four Seasons Restaurant, attaching special importance both to elements of the theatricalised ritual and to his effective use of stage machinery for the presentation of Empedocles' cosmogony. The author reviews two Needcompany productions: Mush-room, which overwhelms spectators with excessive use of special effects that leave little space for interpretation and Marketplace 76 – an exaggerated portrait of a small town community, which gradually unleashes its worst attributes after experiencing a trauma.
