Old Homestead is an interactive theatre installation which invites visitors of all ages to an old homestead full of old tools once used by craftsmen and “stations” where families can stop and play games. You will also see an old wash-house, a smithy where horse shoes are made, an old soap-works and even a privy. Particularly noteworthy are the installations for practising gold-time activities, such as cutting and pickling cabbage, making pots, threshing and grinding grain. The young will be able to participate in old sports and games, such as shooting with a catapult, fights with bags, playing music with saws, riding on a rocking horse, playing on old swings an see-saws, in an old bowling alley and even in a wooden gym.

An interactive exhibition of Bogusław Pobiedziński’s handicrafts, inspired by ceramics created in the Polish Faience Factory in Pacyków. The products of the factory, existing until 1939 and toaday somewhat forgotten, were made by excellent artists of te time and enjoyed a great reputation in pre-war Poland and also abroad.
The author of the exhibition recalls the forgotten factory in an unusual and surprising form, making his works out of recovered pieces of wood and metal.
The Vagabond Theatre was founded in 2002 by Boguslaw Pobiedzinski who had been previously involved in a number of different theatre projects. The company has taken part in numerous theatre festivals in Poland and abroad. Its shows are often performed at folk art fairs. The performers, among whom there are trained pedagogues, circus artists, theatre actors and handicraft enthusiasts, have years of experience in audience animation.
