"FOLLOWING I. B. SINGER'S TRACES 2016”

call for artists

The project, taking place in Eastern Poland, is inspired by the writing of Nobel Prize winner Isaac Bashevis Singer. His books bring us back to the magical universe of small towns, inhabited by demons, sages and ordinary people, with their daily joys and sorrows. We will not find this word anymore, it was gone with the tragic disappearance of Polish Jews during the World War II. The main hero of the most famous Singer's book, “The Magician of Lublin”, is a circus artist traveling through those towns with his show. We want to follow him with our international and interdisciplinary artistic troupe in order to revive for a while this lost multicultural world.

With our workshops and evening shows, we want to make people happy and curious about the past of their towns. As we know from the artists who took part in the previous editions, the participation in this project was for them a big inspiration and a great adventure.

The project is organized by the “Grodzka Gate – NN Theatre” Centre www.teatrnn.pl/en
