First preview of „Dryl”

This weekend the first preview of „Dryl” produced by Powszechny Theatre in Łódź and the seminar devoted to Wojciech Bruszewski concluded the 23rd edition of International Festival of Plays Pleasant and Unpleasant. Thank you for being with us!

 „Dryl” is the only play by Wojciech Bruszewski, an avantgarde artist connected with Łódź who is considered to be one of the fathers of Polish art video. The play was written for „Comedywriting” – the competition for writing the best contemporary comedy. It is organized by Polish Comedy Centre which has been active in Powszechny Theatre.

The play is set in a degenerated dental clinic. But it is not a satire about health service. We see a small community that does not function correctly in a tiny restricted space. The hospital becomes a microcosmos where people behave in an absurd, surreal way.

After the spectacle there was a meeting with its creators. The meeting was moderated by Łukasz Drewniak. Marta Streker, the director, emphasized that she had not tampered with the text. She said that the play „asks questions about human condition in the world where an individual becomes an object of an experiment. It tells about society that has been manipulated and indocrinated”.
