In the third issue of POLISH THEATRE JOURNAL we examine institutional practices in Polish theatre in the context of political and social changes. We analyse the conditions for freedom of artistic expression and mechanisms of censorship; we observe the most significant conflicts and struggles in theatre life; we scrutinize the entanglement of economic, political and aesthetic determinants. We ask about the possibility of making theatre institutions the social laboratories in which cultural practices for the new democratic order could be developed.

POLISH THEATRE JOURNAL is an online Polish-English-language academic journal examining contemporary Polish theatre, dance and performance art.


Upcoming issues:
