Performance inspired by both artistic and literary work of Bruno Schulz. An allegory to cataclysm, false mythology, nudity, fetish and death. And in the end, right in the middle of the disaster, a pair of hesitant angel eyes. Dramatic and dance action is in interaction with Jan Kučera's music, composed for Epoque Quartet, a recognized string ansemble. The 13th Month, sub-titled Requiem for Bruno Schulz, is a string quartet concert and dramatic performance in one piece.

Lenka Dombrovská, Divadelní noviny/Theatre Times
The latest project is well done – emotional, cruel, and even cynically funny. […] Bonus points for the concert (not just musical accompaniment!) by the string quartet I have not written about until now, but which is crucial to the overall impression of the adaptation. Without it, the melancholy and the uncanny fervour of the performance would not have been as strongly felt.

Nina Vangeli, Divadení noviny/Theatre Times
Spitfire Company´s dance theatre piece would be a vindication for Antonin Artaud; he wasn´t
cooped up in an asylum in vain.
