A couple of years back MARIOS did an Collection which in part was inspired by the polish artist Tadeusz Kantor.
2010 is the 20 year anniversary from his dead.
last evening the Marios team went to see the projection of his famous spectacle THE DEAD CLASS (1975) at Cinema Gnomo in Milan.

Tadeusz Kantor (born 6 April 1915 in Wielopole Skrzyńskie – died 8 December 1990 in Krakow)
Was a Polish painter, assemblage artist, set designer and theatre director. Kantor is renowned for his revolutionary theatrical performances in Poland and abroad.
Is one of the most significant Polish artists of the 20th century. Alongside his work as a visual artist he was also involved in the performing arts: he is regarded as a pioneering theatre reformer influenced by the ideas of avant-garde artists. Kantor was particularly interested in disrupting the illusion created by classical theatre, and aimed to break up the prevailing distancing engendered by the stage situation and open it up to real life. He was thus among those 20th-century artists who proclaimed and practised an open concept of art transgressing all its boundaries. The artist attained world renown in the 1970s with the travelling theatre group Cricot², which he established in the mid-1950s.
