TEATR BEZDOMNYCH (THEATRE OF THE HOMELESS)
An initiative developed in Warsaw since 2018 under the artistic direction of Anna Maria Szufa, it involves persons facing homeless crisis, aiming to reduce the sense of loneliness and social isolation in this environment, improve their situation in life and the participants’ self-esteem. They take part in drama workshops, learn to control their body and voice, acquire acting skills, and perform in spectacles. To date they have staged A Magic Teapot adapted from a script by Marta Guśniowska, Christmas Eve from a script by Jeremi Przybora, and, most recently, Guards! Guards! based on a novel by Terry Pratchett.
