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.

Reportedly, a severed head retains consciousness for another 6 to 7 seconds. If one could exchange a few more words with it, perhaps we could learn something important about the motivations of a decapitated head.

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?

Forefathers' Eve

Author: Adam Mickiewicz

Direction: Maja Kleczewska

The Juliusz Słowacki Theatre in Krakow - The Grand Stage

A premiere on the 120th anniversary of the first performance of ‘Forefathers' Eve’ as staged by Stanisław Wyspiański.

‘Forefathers' Eve’ Anno Domini 2021 is a play about Poland. After 120 years, the Romantic drama returns to the Słowacki Theatre. Remembering the productions directed by Wyspiański, Dejmek, Swinarski, Grzegorzewski, we know that this arch-Polish drama is about our subconscious retrotopia, about the ‘undead’ past and its ‘undead’ demons.

A community of a bloody ritual and the conformist salon are the two faces of Poland, encountered by Wyspiański along with the spectres at the same wedding.

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?

A random meeting of two people. What they have in common is their mature age, loneliness and fear of a nascent feeling. He is a homeless eccentric who is involved in photography on a daily basis. She – a blind dreamer, inhabiting the city remembered from her childhood. He is the wonderful Jan Peszek.

Moron

Author: Malina Prześluga

Director: Piotr Ratajczak

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

This story will be about Kuba. A man with an intellectual disability who is ‘in his forties’. Kuba likes soup, his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood, and wants everyone to be ‘good’. Kuba dislikes the ‘bigos’ cabbage stew, stairs and bad people. Therefore Kuba dreams of changing the world and making it a better place. And when he sees that opportunity, he does precisely that. As best as he can.


Moron is the world premiere of the drama that won the Gdynia Drama Award for the best text in 2020. A drama, which in a clever and witty way addresses the complex topic regarding people with disabilities and the world which tries – or sometimes doesn't try at all – to start a dialogue with it. And dialogue is necessary, as long as it’s conducted with wisdom, empathy and sensitivity.
