Ladies and Gentlemen,
This year, our theatre meeting makes us one of the oldest festivals of the art of mime in the entire world!
The Nineteenth Mime Art Festival is a journey through a multitude of forms of the modern pantomime theatre in Europe. These forms, despite their varying roots, are connected by one, increasingly demanding thread - the idea of art beyond words. The original poetic quality, the surprising sensibility and emotionality of the creators and performers of the shows make pantomime difficult to strictly define. This is how this year's Festival is going to be: ambiguous, intriguing and moving.
"Once", the newest production of the Theatre of the Warsaw Mime Center, opens our festival. It's the result of an extraordinary collaboration with the legendary Derevo Theatre. For the first time, we will host Lenka Vagnerova's Czech troupe which skilfully combines mime theatre with dance theatre as part of the show authored by Lionel Menard. The long-awaited Kulunka Teatro from Spain returns to us with its newest show "Solitude". Kulunka's production was one of the biggest events of the Festival in 2015. Like every year, we will create a space for the presentation of smaller mime theatre forms. This time, it will take the form of the "Mime Off" night, which will give us an opportunity to see shows from Germany and Poland. We also invite you to watch the "Cafe Panique" show by the Wrocław Mime Theatre. To commemorate the 100-year anniversary of Henryk Tomaszewski's birth, we have prepared a special evening called "Getting to know Pantomime", dedicated to one of the greatest creators of this art form.
I believe that this year's productions will take you on a valuable journey into the world of the theatre of conscious silence. We hope to fully show its strength and beauty.
On behalf of the Foundation of the Warsaw Mime Center, those in love with the art of mime, actors and audiences - I want to thank the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, as well as the Director and workers of Dramatyczny Theatre in Warsaw for making it possible for us, for the nineteenth time, to celebrate the day of our art.
Bartłomiej Ostapczuk - Artistic Director of the Festival
