Vedral will cooperate with choreographer and performer Krystyna Lama Szydłowska, connected mainly with Poznań, whose work is focused on searching for alternative means of communication and relations with the viewer. The musical layer "No more tears" will be created by Dawid Dąbrowski, a theatre composer and music producer, dealing with improvised music and broadly understood electronics.

Premiere of "No more tears" will take place as part of the Year of the Gods, whose main idea is focused on divine matters, characters and symbolism. 2018 - The year of the gods is part of the Polish Dance Theatre program for the years 2016-2020 with idiom "Polski / wielkopolski" and is to glorify Polish art.
