The 33rd ULICA is one of the very few live festivals in 2020 not only in Poland, but also in the world.
Not as traditionally in July, but on the first weekend of September, artists from Chile, South Korea, France, Spain, Germany and Poland presented in the urban spaces of Krakow and Tarnów 16 various shows tied together by the leitmotif “bizzare acts”.
The 45 performances were admired by an audience of almost 15,000, and the atmosphere of this unique meeting in strange times has a special place in our hearts.
The turn of January and February is the time of the KTO Theatre frequent visits to Iran.
At one of the oldest and most important theatre festivals in this part of the world, we presented six shows directed by Jerzy Zon: Quixotage, I’ll Sell the House in Which I Can Live No More, The Fragrance of Time, Peregrinus, The Blind, and The Chorus of Orphans, honoured at the 35th Fajr International Theater Festival in 2017 with the Best Director Award and a Special Award for the Best Performance of the Festival.
In Tehran, we gave additional performances at the request of the spectators. The negotiations of the crowded audience with the organisers showed the position and importance of the festival presentations!
Our Iranian memories are certainly some of the most tender and exotic memories of our theatre travels.
