Jakub Roszkowski Literary Director

I like writing, reading, creating, talking, discovering, searching, learning, playing, thinking, working things out... I also like theatre. Most of the time.

The Juliusz Słowacki Theatre in Krakow - The Machine House [Miniature] Stage

> 15

The country is in turmoil. One can no longer stand by and just watch. Psychological violence turns into physical violence. In pursuit of freedom and independence, no one accepts a compromise anymore.

The Juliusz Słowacki Theatre in Krakow - The Grand Stage

> 7 EN UKR

Enchanted by the worlds of Hobbit, Harry Potter and Game of Thrones, we often forget about our own home-grown mythology: our Slavic gods, heroes and beasts. They tend to live in our consciousness only in an infantile, primitive form. So how about trying to actually revisit this realm?

The MOS Stage - The MOS Stage

The Great Gatsby by Francis Scott Fitzgerald – one of the most important novels of the 20th century – on the stage of the Słowacki Theatre! A tale of a great dream, great love, great disappointment and great emptiness. A tale of a world shaking off the dark times of war, throwing itself into the revelries of the Jazz Age.

Jay Gatsby's residence, the Valley of Ashes, Long Island, USA. The summer of 1924. Around 8 p.m. A string of posh limos pull into the driveway. The servants welcome the guests with broad smiles and champagne. Inside, you can hear the bustle and sounds of a jazz band tuning up. The overwhelming, dizzying scent of perfume, flowers, desire and money. And the constant questions: where is the host, how did he manage to invite the crème de la crème of New York?, and finally: who is this Great Gatsby? Suddenly there comes the music – swinging, rousing. Everyone hastily sheds their expensive coats and runs onto the dance floor. And you? What are you waiting for? Get in and party with us!
