The main goal, which the director always strives for, is communication, creating a meaningful dialogue with the audience. This dialogue can be based on an understanding or it can start with a provocation that changes the routine way of thinking.
Nowy Teatr seeks to expand the area of dialogue with the audience not confining itself to theater performances alone. It aims to be a place for a whole new artistic situation. An area free for artists and curators to create, a space defined by people full of ideas.
One of Nowy Teatr’s aims is to get involved in the lives of the capital’s inhabitants and change the way they perceive the city. To show it’s hidden structures of memory, denial and oblivion. To open new artistic possibilities, build a place for imagination – interdisciplinary, free from division and bias.
Theater reamins Krzysztof Warlikowski’s main area of interest. Individuals invited to collaborate are faced with the task of cocreating a new concept of this place. Constructing the theater’s new building at the corner of Madalińskiego and Sandomierska Streets is one of the challenges Nowy Teatr faces.
Each event is to be a starting point for discussions, meetings, converations, an exchange of thoughts and words. The Nowy Teatr is not simply about giving performances but rather creating a space for dialogue and initiating exchanges even on the most inconvenient of topics. Thanks to the fact that we have managed to group together so many creative personalities within our Nowy Teatr team, we intend to propose an original and artistic key to understanding the place in which we live and work.
