PARADISO Competition

24 October 2016

Among all the novelties of this year’s festival program, there is also a new PARADISO Competition. Same as last year, this section is thought as a space of confrontation devoted mostly for young, emerging talents. However, this year - besides the Drama Schools diploma’s showcase, we will also see performances realized outside the academia. Young artists will be judged by the international jury composed of prominent curators and theatre critics from Israel, New Zealand and South Korea. Eight shows directed by Magda Szpecht, Katarzyna Kalwat, Kuba Roszkowski, Anna Karasińska, Teo Dumski, Małgorzata Warsicka, Jakub Skrzywanek and Aneta Groszyńska will compete for the main award. 

The main award - a grant of 100 000 PLN for the next production which will be presented at the next festival is given by Łaźnia Nowa Theatre and funded by the City Council.
