Jackson Pollesch returns to stage of TR Warszawa
May 27, 2014
An award winning play of “Jackson Pollesch”, directed by René Pollesch, one of the leading creators of the European avant-garde theater returns to the stage of TR Warszawa on May 27-29.
"Jackson Pollesch” is a satire on ever-present demand for creativity. Creativity and entrepreneurship are the subject of social expectations. A creative human being has become almost an icon of the spirit of capitalism. They play tries to answer a question what creativity really stands for and where an indiscriminate race for creativity is leading up to.
Pollesch is considered to be one of the best post-drama theater directors. He has given up on the conventional theater where actors create their parts by revealing all shades of their psychological motivations. His performances are straightforward political manifestos where the director, who’s also the author of the scripts, precisely analyzes socio-political and economic mechanisms which determine the condition of contemporary people.
Pollesch’s performances impress with the amount of plots, problems discussed or references. The essence of his work is the confrontation on all possible fields and, in this sense, his theater is revolutionary.
Pollesch draws inspiration equally from pop culture and high art. His texts are composed of quotations from social theories, economic analyses, criticism of capitalism, theory of gender, theory of communication, autobiographical notes, street plays and popular films.
Cast: Aleksandra Konieczna, Agnieszka Podsiadlik, Jan Dravnel, Piotr Głowacki, Rafał Maćkowiak and Tomasz Tyndyk.
