Remus by Polish Miniatura City Theatre Performs in Georgia

Award-winning performance “Remus” directed by one of the best polish theatre directors Remigiusz Brzyk comes in October to Tbilisi and Batumi.

It is a universally comprehensible drama of a minority struggling for its salvation in a world which gave away authority to the majority

“Remus” tells the story of Kashubians, ethnic minority in Poland but on a higher level it is a performance about identity and nationality in modern, globalized world. The performance is based on „Life and Adventures of Remus” by Aleksander Majkowski – the most important literary work written in Kashubian. Here the real world mixes with the world of Kashubian legends and fairy tales. It is a colourful work of fiction, analogous to „Don Quixote”, with the main character being accompanied on his travels around the Kashubia by a faithful companion, a musician called Trąba.

„Remus” was directed by multi-award winning theatre director, set designer and a professor of Ludwik Solski Academy for the Dramatic Arts in Cracow, Remigiusz Brzyk. The performance won the Special Award of the Contest for the Staging of Old Polish Literature ‘Living Classics’ organised by Ministry of Culture and National Heritage for the 250 anniversary of public theatre in Poland.

On October 25 at 7pm „Remus” will be showed in the Shota Rustaveli Professional State Drama Theatre in Tbilisi and on October 27 at 8pm in the Batumi Drama State Theatre, Batumi.

Presentations of the performance are co-finansed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland.
