Polish elements in international shows
The Divine Comedy Festival starts in just two days! Our rich program showcases the best of Polish performances presented in two competition sections: PARADISO and INFERNO, best of diploma shows from Polish theatre schools and the best of our Cracow’s theatre repertoires. We will also present two international coproductions - „Princess Dramas” by Michał Borczuch from The Mladinsko Theatre from Slovenia and „The Institute of Memory” by Lars Jan - interdisciplinary multimedia show from LA. The project by Lars Jan, produced by the Early Morning Opera in Los Angeles, is largely inspired by the director’s family history. The two performers on stage get more and more involved in complicated games with the past, going all the way back to the Cold War era. The audience observes a breathtaking sculpture with lighting installations, which not only gives structure to the piece, but also helps to shape its dramaturgy, supervised by Anna R. Burzyńska. The lights and the sculpture are closely linked to the interactive typewriter, which here belongs to the father of the director, who worked as a Cold War operative. The first presentation is scheduled for Friday, the 9th, at 17.00.
Michał Borczuch’s play for the Slovenian Mladinsko Theatre is supported by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute in Warsaw and the Polish Embassy in Ljubljana. Based on a series of texts by Elfriede Jelinek, the play offers a vivisection of the social and cultural status of the titular princesses, in both the mythological and the real-world dimension. Fables about Sleeping Beauty and Snow White are juxtaposed with the stories of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Ingebor Bachmann and Sylvia Plath. The five short theatre pieces aren’t credible psychological portraits, but become a vehicle to sharply criticize the general cultural norms that punish and imprison women, for whom the only available recourse is the one regulated by patriarchal rules, as the playwright observes.
The festival premiere is scheduled for Friday, the 9th.
