The domineering and totalitarian Lear, a king, absolute monarch and colonist, gives away everything he still owns to his children, blindly imagining that this way he would retain his title and the attendant prerogatives. Rejected by his family, stripped of his possessions and dignity, he is going nuts by the hour. Is the future going to say about the past that it has understood its madness and admitted its sins? Following the gloss of the translator, Józef Paszkowski, the play’s authors transferred its setting to the 32nd c. A.D. Lear becomes a fantastic and abstract study of today’s situation of Europe and Poland from the perspective of the future. In this context Lear, both as a figure and as a constantly recreated text of culture, becomes a figure of a return to (the memory of) the past.
THE HOUSE OF BERNARDA ALBA
25 April | 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…
TWELVE ANGRY MEN
6 May | 20.00 | Big Stage
Guilty? Not guilty? Alive? Dead? A boy accused of killing his father waits for a verdict. A dozen respectful citizens need to decide his faith. Temperature rises and doubts deepen. Emotions prevail over rationality. Death penalty or acquittal? What will be the choice made by the twelve angry men?
DZIADY (FOREFATHERS’S EVE)
8 May | 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.
