THE HOUSE OF BERNARDA ALBA
27 October | 18.00 | New Stage
In a small town lives a prayerful widow with five daughters, old mother and two maids. This story is not a fairy tale, though. The house is ruled with the widow’s iron fist, the eldest gone mad, the maids keep some secrets and the imprisoned daughters wish to leave the family. But there is just one knight on a white horse in the neighborhood…

The author of the acclaimed GOLGOTHA PICNIC comes back to Poznań! VERSUS by Rodrigo Garcia is a sweeping and moving play about a disintegrating family, simultaneously united and divided by a big secret from the past. It is a work about people who live in a complex world of guilt and wrong, intimacy and hate. Versus is moreover a poetic story about truth in art and about emotions which invariably accompany the assumption of successive roles. Without whitewashing. Without compromise. Without censorship.

There were no curtains hung in the Scandinavian homes in order to show that their residents, especially women, had nothing to hide; that they lived honestly and devoutly. But what about the residents of contemporary homes, hiding behind the heavily curtained windows? Are the curtains hiding only their sins and minor misdeeds? Or are they hiding dreams as well, allowing the residents to break the bonds of propriety, to, if only temporarily, forget about social expectations? The Austrian playwright Werner Schwab mercilessly opens these curtains. He allows us to look into the deeply hidden desires of his presidents, the pillars of the middle class community, who, in spite of being burdened with everyday concerns, are still dreaming of love. And only behind the curtains they can safely fantasise.
DZIADY (FOREFATHERS’S EVE)
22 November | 19.00 | Big Stage
Dark everywhere, gloom everywhere. What’s in the air, what’s in the air? There is… epidemic of love for Adam Mickiewicz and his works. One of the greatest Polish writers is placed in a glittering world of American pop culture. But behind the attractive visual side there is an important lesson to learn about racism, equality and tolerance. The language of Adam Mickiewicz is not old, one can tell about phantoms and ghosts which are haunting people in the 21st century. FOREFATHER’S EVE is a proof for this.
23 November | 20.30 | Third Stage
A monodrama in which actress Edyta Lukaszewska inquires about freedom: where to seek it and whether it exists. In her opinion, “Totalitarianism is a state of mind filled with the fear of a nonexistent threat. I am looking for answers about what freedom is and how it matters to me. My character seems to know more about it”. The text was written by András Visky, a Hungarian poet, essayist and playwright born in 1957 in Târgu Mureş, Romania. His plays have been staged internationally, including in France, Italy, Poland and Romania.
