A Christmas Carol

Author: Charles Dickens

Text and direction: Jakub Krofta , Maria Wojtyszko

The MOS Stage - The MOS Stage

A Christmas Carol bears as much relevance today as it did in Dickens' time. A world devoid of compassion and solidarity, in which an indifferent rich man determines the lives of entire families, did not end when humanity entered the post-modern era. Nevertheless, the authors of the play do not want to dwell on this grim diagnosis. Their aim is to look with compassion and understanding at the character of Ebeneezer Scrooge.

The stage setting of this Victorian story of a miser haunted by ghosts serves merely as a pretext to talk about the misery of a man who does not love himself. Because Scrooge, much like the mythical Narcissus, only sees the surface, and is incapable of introspection, and thus of love. In this sense, the central character of A Christmas Carol is more of a victim of the circumstances in which he happens to live than a villain. His transformation is not only a shift from egoism to empathy, but also breaking free of the stereotypical perception of one' s role in the world.

Produced in collaboration with the National Bank of Poland.

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.

Botticelli

Author: Jordan Tannahill

: Marta Orczykowska

The MOS Stage - The MOS Stage

Florence, the reign of the Medici family. The apex of painting, but also time of plague and social unrest. Botticelli, favoured by the rulers, was commissioned to paint a portrait of Lorenzo de' Medici's wife. And thus ‘The Birth of Venus’ comes into being, with a significant contribution of Botticelli’s gifted young student – Leonardo da Vinci. The two men develop a feeling for each other...

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.

Hamlet

Author: William Shakespeare / Stanisław Wyspiański

Direction: Bartosz Szydłowski

The Juliusz Słowacki Theatre in Krakow - The Grand Stage

‘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.
