Theatre in Public Space Festival
An international festival “Theatre in Public Space” organised by the Chair of Culture Association and the Culture Animation specialisation as part of the DNA – Development of New Art project.
The festival was planned as a theatrical lab for activities held in urban space. Of equal importance in the project were the two aspects of this space, namely the social aspect related to diverse “communities” found there i.e. residents, pedestrians, users, etc. and the material aspect connected with the landscape, architecture and urban planning, etc.
During the festival held at a tenement house in Warsaw, at Lubelska 30/32 street and its vicinities the following events were held: workshops by Akademia Ruchu Theatre, Public Movement (Israel), Marta Ladjanszka (Hungary), Poste Restante (Sweden) and workshops on interpretation run by dr Joanna Ostrowska and management workshops run by Agnieszka Wlazeł and Agata Etmanowicz.
