Thought-Provoking Theater

The RMNSC Cracow Theatrical Reminiscences festival takes the notion of parallel worlds as its central theme this year.

The thought-provoking festival, held since 1975, showcases different approaches to arts, politics and society and aims to serve up a bold commentary on contemporary life and culture.

The 38th RMNSC festival takes place Oct. 16-20, spanning dozens of events held at the best theaters in Cracow and in outdoor locations across the city. Festival audiences will see contemporary dance performances, movie screenings and theater productions from Poland and abroad and will be able to take part in international workshops, panel discussions and meetings with theater professionals.

The “parallel worlds” theme is primarily a reference to differing societies and social structures determined by, for example, geographical location. Events which explore this subject include 100% Kraków, the festival’s key project, carried out by the Rimini Protokoll theater collective and involving the local community. The project is essentially a play based on statistical data compiled from official surveys. The cast are 100 Cracow residents, each of whom represents a specific group of locals. The script emerges through a dynamic process that produces a complex picture of the city. Similar projects have taken place before in Berlin, London and Melbourne.

Festival guests will include An Kaler, who in a performance entitled Insignificant Others (looking sideways), uses dance to deliver a portrait of contemporary times while refraining from preaching. Milo Rau/Institute for Political Murder are coming with a play entitled Hate Radio, which exposes the mechanisms people use to invent and distort reality. Hate Radio is based on stories told by survivors of the genocidal conflict between the Hutu and Tutsi people in Rwanda.

Rabih Mroué will give a performance/lecture entitled The Pixelated Revolution, using real-life footage and photographs to discuss the conflict in Syria and pointing to new strategies in reporting violence and the atrocities of war.

Anka Herbut will join forces with a dozen performers from Poland, Latvia, Italy and Germany to act as a guide for visitors on Artistic City Trips in Cracow and Nowy S±cz. Finally, Jan Fabre will perform a monodrama entitled Drugs Kept Me Alive.
