Discussion with the management of A. Fredro Theatre in Gniezno: Joanna Nowak (chief executive) and Maria Spiss (artistic director)
Moderator: Jacek Cieślak
Two performances of the Divine Comedy Festival are productions that come from Gniezno. We have been following the development of the Gniezno stage since 2013, when Joanna Nowak became the chief executive, through a change in the repertoire, audience preparation and education, till the moment when the Gniezno company became as frequent a guest of top festivals as the theatres from Wałbrzych or Legnica did before. Gniezno (70 thousand inhabitants) as an example of the rise of reputation of the local stage to reach the level of metropolitan theatres in a town considered to be provincial.
