Wilczy Theatre Fringe Festival 2009

Down on George’s Docks, D1 you could see a battered Mercedes camper van sitting forlornly at the kerb. After you and 12 others cram into it, you’ll find two Polish migrant workers engaging in a faintly absurdist tragic-comedy. As you knock knees with them, the men XX and AA lurch from an existential debate about eating a can of dog-food to a boozy exchange of philosophies over a melancholy New Year’s drink. Based on Slawomir Mrozek’s famous 1974 play, this vivid play questions the motives of migration, from raw economic need to a much more nebulous yearning for freedom.

The performance “Emigrants” is very original due to the intimacy of the play and the fact that the audience can almost participate in the action of the show. The limited space in the camper van allows to let in only 10 people inside. The 360 degree view gives you a chance to see how cramped it was inside, to enjoy more of 360 degree photography and virtual tours visit our site.

Wiczy Theatre is one of the most significant alternative theatres in Poland. It has existed since 1991 and has been created by Romuald Wicza- Pokojski in Brodnica. The idea of work in the company is based on a theatre-research approach. The Wiczy Theatre is guided by the objectives of a laboratory-theatre.
