Inauguration of the 2016 Theatre Olympics “World as a Place of Truth” in Wrocław

From the 14th of October to the 13th of November, the capital of Lower Silesia will turn into the international capital of theatre as part of the European Capital of Culture Wrocław 2016 celebrations. The Theatre Olympics will be inaugurated by The Trojan Women by Tadashi Suzuki, renewed specially for the event. The première took place in 1974. According to the director, The Trojan Women show the universality of human suffering, experienced in the West and in Japan to those who survived World War II, and according to the New York Times “Suzuki had brought to life a hybrid of Greek tragedy and classical Japanese theatrical forms – kabuki and nō, transforming Euripides into a contemporary Japanese author”. The play will be presented on October 14-16.

During the first weekend of the Theatre Olympics, we are going to present two additional plays in the main section of the event: The Temptation of Quiet Veronica by Krystian Lupa and Life Between Heaven and Earth by Liu Libin, as well as Happy Days featuring Maja Komorowska and Adam Ferency as part of the Grotowski Institute programme.Tadashi Suzuki, Maja Komorowska and Liu Libin, artistic director of the Theatre Olympics in Beijing in 2014 will be the honorary guests at the opening ceremony in Wrocław.

 

Moreover, on October 15 (Saturday), the Lower Silesian Theatre Platform will start. On the subsequent 5 days, we are going to see 37 theatrical plays by dramatic, musical and children’s theatres, as well as theatre of movement and pantomime, classical forms and experimental from the entire region in the capital of Lower Silesia. The artistic director of the Wrocław edition, Jarosław Fret, considers the Lower Silesian Theatre Platform as the best programme to open the Olympics – the great celebration of theatre in Wrocław and describing the city itself.
