Summary/Abstract: Natalia Brajner writes about Thomas Richards' The living room – opus (this is what its creators call it, avoiding the word “performance”), which consists of folk songs from different continents. It was shown in June 2016 in Wrocław. The author notes that the main subject of the event is the cycle of human life (the artists develop the motifs of, among others, birth, travel and death). Brajner emphasises the fact that Richards' work leaves a lot of freedom to the viewers. She moves on to an analysis of the possible ways of experiencing the event on part of the audience, stressing the primacy of emotion and intuition over intellect.
