Teatr Ognia i Papieru (Fire and Paper Theatre) (Poland)

The Reliquary

July 7, at 9:00 pm., Metro Słodowiec

 

Teatr Ognia i Papieru is the original theatre of Grzegorz Kwieciński - a director and graphic artist from Łódź. The theatre was established in Lublin in 1978, and after three years it moved to Łódź, where it has its headquarters until today. The first performance of the Fire and Paper Theater took place during the Qualifying Course for Puppet Theatre Instructors, on August 1, 1978 in Gardzienice. As Grzegorz Kwieciński says: "It turned out that there was nothing there. But the construction work was going on, i.e. a renovation of the palace /.../. And I started to build my sculptures, objects there. There was nothing to illuminate them with, so I thought I would illuminate them with fire. And when I started using fire, I thought, ‘Ah, great, it’s beautiful like that’." And so the visual theatre was born, with fire as a driving force. The artist has developed his own original style using visual signs and images, the style that is now recognised not only in Poland but also abroad. The Fire and Paper Theatre, together with its creator, wanders around the world. The company has participated in the most important puppet and alternative theatre festivals in Hungary, France, Switzerland, Germany, Sweden, India, Panama, Pakistan, Ecuador and the USA.
