This is what the director said about the artistic goals he wanted to achieve in Mistrz i Małgorzata (The Master and Margarita): I wanted to do a show about freedom, about the quest for freedom; about how a creative person, a writer, artist or actor, looks for their own free space in which they can come into being. This is why I have proposed three acts, each one completely different. In act one we are trying to show the Moscow of the 1930's, the capital city of a totalitarian state. In act two we are transferred to a mental institution where we try to understand what individual freedom is. Finally, in act three we take a look at freedom-related issues from the perspective of the relationship between the Master and Margarita.
