Times are becoming ever more unsettled, more questions arising, while answers - are even more chaotic. What’s new, what’s next? We’re all feeling the need for change – for many changes yet. But need in itself does not generatr any sort of new order. Hence, thinking about  generations after 2020, we are looking not just for new methods of creating, new souces and re-evaluated paradigms – making out territories of change. We are looking more closely at that which is known, seeing within it opportunities and limitations.

The fourth edition of Generation After 4. Showcase featuring the newest developments taking place on Polish theatrical stages, involving representatives and programmers of the most important festivals and theatrical institutions from Europe, Asia and America.

Beyond performaces, programme included talks led by Performing Arts Institute, a series of virtual guided tours at collaborating institutions, where building is only an exuse to share their visions, and 1-on-1 meetings with collaborating institutions and artists.

Fortunately, the theatre has a prophetic gift of feeling, anticipating and sensitizing to the emergence of social facts that are about to become part of our lives. Careful observation allows us to draw conclusions, and theatre is a keen observer of reality. Peeking inside the minds of the most radical artists working in new Polish theatre today.

Showcase Generation After 4. is a part of the International New Europe Festival financed by city of Warsaw.
