Common Theatre

Common Theatre is CK ZAMEK’s  a long-term programme which, over the last two years, made a name for itself on the theatre scene in Poznań.  The portfolio of Common Theatre now spans eight premieres, several outstanding performances by Polish and international companies, and “repertoire” revivals of shows produced in our institution.  All events enjoyed great interest of our audiences, which filled the auditorium to the very last place.

The project itself is exceptional in that the productions are the result of collaboration with milieus whose dramatic work relies of tools and methods that originally served therapeutic purposes, helping people to overcome limitations and difficulties stemming from various social and personal circumstances. We have ensured financial backing as well as organizational and technical support, so that all participants would be able to reach their goals and develop while working with outstanding, carefully selected artists. 


The eponymous “commonness” of the project denotes first and foremost the universal need to find oneself in a creative process. Acquiring the skill to express the confused feelings and thoughts, as well as forging the integrity of artistic communication developed by repeated, disciplined spontaneity, is an experience shared by all those who enter the world of theatre. The therapists who seek to help their  charges to surmount barriers pose the same questions that professional actors ask themselves, while those participating in the therapy confront them in a similar fashion.


The “commonness” is also a token of our intentions and efforts to make theatre created by the disabled or persons facing social inclusion a fully-fledged artistic phenomenon, whose critical evaluation would employ the standard criteria applied to performative arts events. The international companies invited to contribute in the project have indeed achieved that status. In spring 2018, we will be hosting two of those: Compagnie de l’Oiseau-Mouche from France and tanzbar_bremen from Germany. Also, our audiences are welcome to join us for a guest production of Teatr Śląski in Katowice. On top of that, Common Theatre will include revivals of performances from previous years, workshops for the audience and a lecture by a Czech social theatre expert, Jana Pilatova.

 Common Theatre. See you there.
