27th edition of the Theatre Confrontations Festival
The principal idea of the Theatre Confrontations Festival is the annual confrontation of the Lublin audience with a wide spectrum of theatrical performances – their various aesthetics and creative strategies. Confrontations are a search for bold themes and non-standard stage solutions, created in alternative theatres, to which our audience has already got used to. It is an attempt to show the artistic dialogue between the recognized artists, and the young generation of directors. The programme includes such names as Słobodzianek, Smolar, Ziemilski, Twardoch and Kalwat. This year, the celebration of theatre is taking place for the 27th time and be happening throughout October.
The festival is not afraid to deal with the most important topics of the present day. This year’s Confrontations are intended to particularly appreciate the role that widely understood literature plays in the process of building a theatre performance. That is why the 27th edition’s motto is “Literature wants more”. By using this personification, we want to draw the attention of the participants of the Festival to the fact that there are hidden longings in literature. Above all, however, we emphasize the role of literature in order to consider whether it is there – that is, in the literary narrative, where the beating heart of the chosen stage events lies.
An induction loop will be available at all events.
