Gypsies, the Romany, the Kalderash, the Lovari, the Roma… do you know who they are, where they come from? What are their traditions? How did they live once and how do they live now? DROM is a poetic philosophical tale about migration and history of the Roma, the ethnic group that inhabits nearly all countries of the world but of which we know very little. The narrative of this show without words is built on the Roma music from various countries of the world.
Special thanks to Jerzy Zoń and the KTO Theatre, Edyta Jaskowiak and Teresa Mirga.
The group was established in Kraków in 2019 at the initiative of Monika Kozłowska and Justyna Wójcik. The Migro Theatre performers, professionally linked to the KTO Theatre and inspired by its artistic projects, combine the experience gained there with the themes they find interesting and with their own artistic research.
Acting space for the Migro Theatre’s productions is found in streets, squares and green areas of small towns and large cities. Its wordless shows are built upon gesture, dance and mimicry – a theatre language that comes across to each and every viewer. The name ”Migro” bears reference to the migratory character of street theatre and at the same time it emphasises the subjects of the group’s artistic exploration – migrating communities, random encounters in our everyday life.
