Wrocław artists are remembering the flood of 1997 in their own special way.

Marcin Misiura from the Ad Spectatores theatre tells Elżbieta Krajewska about a play focusing on the Great Flood being staged this weekend on Słodowa Island -- right in the middle of the River Odra, which caused so much damage to the city, but also brought local people together in a heroic struggle against the elements.
