Realpolitik in the Polish theatre in the years 2015–2020. The chief executives of several important Polish stages will be asked about the behind the scenes negotiations with civil servants, politicians and organisers. How do they talk with them and what about? Who is and who might be an ally of a reformer-chief executive in the Polish theatre? Who is threatened by the theatre and who finds it inconvenient? The participants will also say how artistic risk can be defined and in what areas it can be encountered.
