International Theatre Festival THE WORLD AS A PLACE OF TRUTH

14–30 June


This festival, with a name inspired from a speech by Jerzy Grotowski, is an opportunity to witness the work of directors who transformed different areas of the theatre in the twentieth century, very often pushing artistic boundaries. Each featured world master has developed a special aesthetic and form, drawing heavily from the influence of Grotowski’s acting methods and research. The festival will explore the questions, “What is permanent in the transitory art of theatre?” “What is independent of the momentary tastes of audiences?” and “What are we carrying to the new theatre millennium?”
