We are pleased to announce first details of the programme created for this year’s edition of the Festival. They have been presented during the press conference by Janusz Opryński – Artistic Director, Marta Keil and Grzegorz Reske – curators and our guest, Joanna Krakowska, curator of the “Decency Clause” theme.
The programme of the 20th edition of the Festival focuses on three themes that overlap in a diverse, often surprising, ways.
1. The political dimension of art. Also of the censored one. We will present distinctly political, critical artists that force to think and open new contexts but at the same time we will reveal the social and economic context of their work.
2. Performing arts. For yet another time we will invite Lublin’s audience to performances that broaden the theatre formula in a fascinating, surprising way, offer a new way of thinking about theatre language, thus questioning the model of dramatic, repertoir theatre as the only one possible.
3. Independence. Theatre Confrontations were founded 20 years ago as a festival of independent, avant-garde, searching theatre. What is independence today? Independence from what, whom? An alternative to what we want to create today?
