Agamemnon

Author: Rodrigo Garcia

Direction, lights: Szymon Kaczmarek

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

A father, a ruler, a husband, a commander. This mythical archetype constitutes a starting point for García in his confrontation with the audience. The title itself makes the protagonist of his text more than just a father, shopping for his family. He resembles Michael Douglas in Falling Down, who lets go of all his inhibitions. He cannot stand the lies, the shallowness and the pettiness of the surrounding reality. He treats all his social and family connections to a brutal therapy.

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?

Hamlet

Author: William Shakespeare / Stanisław Wyspiański

Direction: Bartosz Szydłowski

‘In Poland the mystery of Hamlet is the following: what in Poland is there to think about’.

These are Wyspiański's words from his Study on Hamlet, written feverishly in several days – a work that constitutes a source of inspiration for many Polish directors. Wyspiański contained therein his fascination with the phenomenon of theatre, his love for the brilliant text, and his great desire to read it so profoundly as to shake the conscience of his compatriots.

Late Company

Author: Jordan Tannahill

Direction, text, musical arrangement: Iwona Kempa

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

It starts a bit like Yasmina Reza's God of Carnage: two married couples come together discuss a problem that has driven their children apart. This time, however, it will not be funny as the matter itself does not inspire jokes. Exclusion, cyberbullying, and finally suicide – these are the issues addressed in this text, sparking post-show discussions among the audience members s in Canada and the West End. How can this story resonate in Poland? In today's Poland?

My Stay’s Almost Over and I’m Still Alone [COPY]

Direction: Cezary Tomaszewski

Yet another group in the sanatorium. New patients arrive at the springs to regain their health, profit from treatments and exercise, go for walks and, above all, dance. The director of the centre – Józef Dietl – is an outstanding doctor. A doctor who understands that treatment will not work without love or at least a spafling.
