Polish Theatrical Studio in Vilnius would like to invite all people who are interested and who love theatre , to International Polish Festival of Perforamances “MONOWschód I”, which will take place on 23-25 November, 2012.

Polish Theatre of J.I.Kraszewski

It is one of the oldest Polish theaters in Ukraine, which has been reopened after many years. The opening performance revealed many friends and theatre lovers in Ukraine. On the Theatre’s website, there is some information concerning cultural life in Żytomierz, but also some other things. There is also Polish Theatrical Study working within the Theatre, which educates next generations of Polish actors. Classes are conducted by qualified and experienced teachers.

There are two shows scheduled.

A monodrama of a young Russian writer, Włodzimierz Zujew, “Childlish world”

Directed by: Mikołaj Worfołomiejew
Performed by: Julia Słowińska

On the stage, actors perform a monodrama, which was highly non-normative. The show had been chosen as to interest as many people as possible.

The leading topic is the one of an abortion which in the Ukrainian society is a current problem. The performance deals with a young woman’s problem who while being in a relationship wit a man, forgets what her biological obligation is.

Performing adoption is not only a murder but also a cause of many psychological irresolutions. The purpose of this show is to make women aware of their role and warn them against making decisions they will regret in the future. The monodrama is specifically directed towards young people of this generation, for whom the problem of abortion is a current issue.
