The exhibition "Theatre Spirits", held at Divine Comedy Festival, crowns the project which is a reflection upon those who are crucial for the magic of theatre:
technical workers, electricians, scene shifters, soundmen and many other people, shows the complexity and appeal of theatre as a medium. We uncover what is usually hidden from the audience’s eyes and we represent those who usually stay invisible as “we return to things themselves” – trying to present a different life of the objects, which are so common in theatre that they become transparent. Moreover, we make the spectators see multitude of elements that every play is comprised of. An inter-active exposition, comprised of multimedia installation, 3D projections, photographic collages and audiosphere, is not only an attempt to show the fascinating nature of theatre but an invitation to experience it organically – an approach inspired by Merleau-Ponty’s statement – “perception is not a matter of intellectual contemplation, but of an active relationship with the objects”. The project "Theatre Spirits" is realized by Łaźnia Nowa Theatre as a part of celebrations around “the 250th anniversary of public theatre in Poland”. Cultural and educational activities that we organize are supposed to create narration about people hidden behind theatre curtains, who work on the backstage and the results of their theatrical craft.
