Komuna Warszawa (Warsaw Commune)
is one of the leading independent theatres, experimenting on the boundaries of performing arts, dance, and music. In its creations, it addresses important contemporary issues, relentlessly looking for new forms and means of expression. Opening a space for creative dialogue and discussion, it combines various aesthetics and generations of authors. Those who have staged their shows at the Warsaw Commune include Monika Strzępka and Paweł Demirski, Marta Ziółek, Iza Szostak, Anna Smolar, Marcin Liber, Krzysztof Garbaczewski, Mikołaj Mikołajczyk, Weronika Szczawińska, Wojtek Ziemilski, and Cezary Tomaszewski. The Warsaw Commune’s shows have been presented and awarded at international festivals in Edinburgh, Kyiv, Moscow, Berlin, New York, Munich, Paris, Tbilisi, and Tehran.
The curator cycles RE//MIX and Mikro Teatr of Tomasz Plata, performed at the Warsaw Commune, have proven particularly popular. Since 2007, the Warsaw Commune has operated at the Lubelska 30/32 artistic house on Warsaw’s Kamionek district.
