Due to pandemic restrictions, this year’s World Theatre Day will be celebrated virtually. We invite you to visit Teatr KTO online, where, as part of the Touch the Theatre initiative, we will show a film, From Neomonachomachia to Exodus.
The film centres on the freedom of art with the example of the show Neomonomachia, produced by the KTO Theatre and performed in Krakow as part of the Poetry Night on the 3rd of October, 2015.
The contemporary vision of Ignacy Krasicki’s poem had many opponents who saw the performance as a provocation against Catholic religion and patriotic views.The creators of the show, director Jerzy Zoń and screenwriter Bronisław Maj, accused of offending national and religious feelings, reflect on the place of satire in today’s political reality and the challenging relationship between artists and authorities.
Exodus (directed by Paulina Bondaronek and Tristan Anderson) premiered at Krakow Film Festival, Poland 2017, and was screened at festivals around the world:
Seattle Polish Film Festival, USA 2017
Impacts of Gender Discourse on Polish Politics, Society & Culture, School of Slavonic and East European Studies, University College London, England 2018
Wolves Independent International Film Festival, Lithuania 2018
Doc Heads, London England 2018
The film will be available on the 27th of March, form 6 pm till midnight. The film is in Polish with English subtitles.
