  • 17 / 10 16:00

The cancellation of Golgota Picnic at the Malta Festival in Poznań. The attempt to stop the premiere of Śmierć i dziewczna at the Polish Theatre in Wrocław. Audiences protesting the selection of the new director of the Polish Theatre in Wrocław. An official investigation into the case of insulting the religious beliefs in Naše nasilje i vaše nasilje (Our violence, your violence) presented at the Premiere Festival in Bydgoszcz. Cancellation of the Premiere Festival in Bydgoszcz. Protests and attempts to stop the presentation of Klątwa (The Curse) at the Powszechny Theatre in Warsaw. These are only some of the events that transpired in the past several years. Why did theatre recently become a target of political and ideological attacks? Can Polish theatre artists count on the institutions they work for to ensure their freedom of creation, regardless of their views and what kind of theatre they create? Is there a space in Polish theatre to develop various styles and aesthetics? Is dialogue even possible? These are only some of the questions that will be posed during the “Will there be no dialogue? About the situation in Polish theatre” debate with outstanding artists and commentators of Polish theatre.

Guests: Agata Adamiecka-Sitek, Anna Augustynowicz, Magdalena Chlasta-Dzięciołowska, Dariusz Kosiński, Katarzyna Tórz, Tomasz Kireńczuk.
