AFTER THE PLAY TALK: Q&A with Dorota Masłowska
Grzegorz Jarzyna, one of the most acclaimed Polish theatre directors stages a cutting-edge adaptation of Dorota Maslowska’s seemingly absurd drama. The text made of subversively transformed quotes from pop-culture and national stereotypes, exposes, in a masterly way, the falsehood of the language of advertisements, glossy magazines and tabloids and confronts consumerist dreams with the reality of a grim life. It also mocks the shallowness of media and show business but all this is only a surface under which a more serious question is hidden – a question about “us” and our national identity.
The project is organized as part of the 2014 cultural programme celebrating 600 years of diplomatic relations between Turkey and Poland. www.turkiye.culture.pl
