The Life Of A Knight
17th century – common movement (pospolite ruszenie) to the offensive against the enemies of Rzeczpospolita
1904 – Birthday of the Chief Officer of Zuchthaus
The character of this event is a living contact with the history and customs of castle life. At the end of the event it will turn out that the Medieval epoch, either the late Middle Ages or the Dark Ages, when seen through this perspective do not seem that gloomy.
SCENE II Evening Banquet in the Castle
The place itself – a gothic castle – medieval red, brick masonry – the smell of fire in the fireplace – cloisters and the inside lit with torches make an incredible effect. Yet, the organiser provides something superb!
Faithfully recreated medieval costumes will be worn not only by the strolling staff catering the party, but also by the participants themselves. Apart from that – a banquet hosted by the Grand Master of the Teutonic Order, with grub not unworthy of monks, with booze from the castle cellars and with medieval music!
Yet, the plebs as well as the petty bourgeois will not so easily sit at one table with the Grand Master! First the keenness of their intellect and the strength and flexibility of their bodies will be tested. The group is divided into three smaller patrols (creative groups) and sent on their way through the nooks and recesses of the castle. All must join in to carry out the tasks which move them closer to the banquet!
