Full-blooded Philoctetes at Warsaw Theater Meetings

The Teatr Polski in Wrocław has brought to the 33rd Warsaw Theater Meetings a production of Sophocles’ tragedy “Filoktet” (Philoctetes), directed by Barbara Wysocka, which will be shown with English subtitles on April 23 at the Dramatyczny Theater in Warsaw.

Should a man condemned to ten years of exile, of imprisonment and humiliation forgive his oppressors for his nation's sake? What does a higher good mean then? Can it eventually become a justification for mass murder? These are the questions posed by the director and stage designer Wysocka in her staging of Philoctetes.

"It is impossible for the acting not to move you. The way the roles are built is the most interesting proof of how precisely the artists have approached the performance. The actors as if have hidden behind the characters creating separate entities with gestures, facial expressions and intonations. And though we watch entities artistically perfect (i.e. Marcin Czernik as Philoctetes and Adam Szczyszczaj as Neoptolomeus), we sense at the same time their connection - one would like to say - with the full-blooded matter of life", Katarzyna Lisowska wrote on the web portal kontrast-wroclaw.

Cast includes: Marcin Czarnik, Adam Szczyszczaj, Wiesław Cichy and Rafał Kronenberger
Running time: 1 hr 20 mins
April 23, 5.00 pm & 9.00 pm
