In the area of theatre, the Institute seeks to spread knowledge about Poland’s contemporary performing art scene among a broad international audience, and to attract foreign artists, directors and critics to contemporary Polish drama. The Institute contributes to the development of Polish playwriting, theatre and dance by supporting performances of artistic ensembles at the world’s most important festivals. We support the individual development of young artists through multidisciplinary residency programmes and internships at leading theatre institutions. We support the young generation through intergenerational mentor programmes and initiate international projects of experimental dance, performative art and new technologies.
We collaborate with organisers of Polish theatre and dance showcases, including the Divine Comedy Festival in Kraków and the Generation After Showcase in Warsaw. We promote Polish culture by organising study visits for theatre directors and festival curators.
