Idea

The festival is a recognisable event on the map of Polish and European festivals promoting the art of storytelling at such a high level. The first edition of the festival took place in 2012. It was a joint initiative of Ewa Benesz, an actress and educator, and the “Grodzka Gate – NN Theatre” Centre.

We hosted artists from Italy, Bulgaria, France, Greece, Ukraine, Israel, Morocco, Russia, Spain, Singapore, USA, and Poland.
