Inside this big cosy house

Jurek, Paweł

Paweł Jurek mocks our contemporary reality which is constantly manipulated by the media. His characters believe in their fictional images; they lose their sense of identity. It finds its reflection in the destroyed culture that has been replaced by TV pictures. The powerful media is ready to create heroes out of criminals and nothing can stop them. The key word here is “popularity”. In the market of fame one of the most worthy products are still beauty and love. These will always find customers.

Off you go!

Jurek, Paweł

A three-act comedy

This witty and twisted comedy explores the genre of a soap opera, mixes various kinds of “Dynasty”-like plots, and quotes TV series. It gives us insight into the lives of film producers. 

The madness

Jurek, Paweł

In a series of symbolic scenes the author presents a world deprived of human values, full of mechanical activities like copulation, selling, buying and killing. A sexual pervert wandering across a park after sunset, finding no other release but to bite the soil like an angry animal; he interferes with mindless girls, fans of supermarkets bargains taking a dummy for a real person, decent citizens whose moral codes appear to be equal with those of criminals.

To be born again

Ślepowrońska, Dagna

A psychological drama 

Apart from Aniela, all the characters of the play remain seated in the auditorium until their time comes to go on the stage and perform their parts. 

Luminosity

Łukosz, Jerzy

A three- act play

A psychological drama. A theatre director creates a passion to worship the theatre. The play talks about the borders that one must establish while manipulating others, about the need for having gurus and high ideas in the modern world. In “Luminosity” we can find a recollection of Jerzy Grotowski’s theatre concept.

Black over white

Chotkowski, Łukasz

Using a simple and vulgar language, Chotkowski gives the audience a realistic insight into the life of the street people.  The action takes place amongst the juveniles. The author presents a chain of impressive pictures of the young losers who live nowhere and deal with stealing and mugging. Their rudeness towards each other results from a state of being lost. Their emotions are childish.
