‘Pieces of a Woman’ by TR Warszawa
‘Pieces of a Woman’ [Czastki kobiety], a creation of Hungarian artists Kornél Mundruczó & Kata Wéber, performed by the Polish ensemble @TRWarszawa, was meant to be presented during KunstenFestivalDesArts in Brussels. Unfortunately, due to COVID pandemics, this year’s edition of the festival has been canceled.
Hoping that you will be able to see this outstanding piece soon (or that you have seen it already via Stay home, don’t leave the theatre! initiative of TRWarszawa), we would like to warmly invite you to discover two essays explaining why this play is so representative of the contemporary Polish theater.
