PURGATORIO

PURGATORIO is a digest of productions combined with a showcase of accompanying events and presentation of the most thought-provoking productions from Kraków stages. This year, the emphasis is on dance and movement as forms of onstage expression: valuable, ferocious, and multidimensional. Key artists from Polish dance theatre are joined by two big international names: the productions by Michiel Vandevelde from Belgium and Steven Cohen from South Africa are exceptional events for fans of daring forms of expression on stage. This section also includes Krystian Lupa’s masterpiece Capri – wyspa uciekinierów / Capri – the Island of Fugitives: the director's return to the question of the twilight of Europe’s culture.
