Power and Responsibility
|13 December 2017
||Festival Center MOS - Malopolska Garden of Arts|
Is fire fought with gasoline? Or maybe it is better to make it even bigger so that the whole world could see how we die on the barricades? Or maybe there are some values, that if under social and political pressure, will vanish and negate the sense of theatre making? Hard times have come for the institution directors. They have to choose between one-time gestures and a long-term thinking. What does it mean, under these specific political circumstances, to develop and create an artistic team? What is worth saving and what needs to be sacrificed? At what point does the symbolic game turn into a war that casts the stage and theatre people aside and focuses on a political plan? The invited directors of major theatres in Poland will discuss directorial strategies of playing different games with the reality.
Participants: Anna Augustynowicz, Jacek Głomb, Paweł Łysak, Krzysztof Mieszkowski, Bartosz Szydłowski
Host: Jacek Wakar
