Didaskalia. Gazeta Teatralna, English Issue 3/2020

Bringing together a selection of academic and journalistic pieces published in our journal in 2007‒2020, this third issue of English-language Didaskalia offers a snapshot of Poland’s current theatre landscape by shining a spotlight on some significant events: from Teatr 21’s shows to Oliver Frljić’s production of The Curse , from the work of TerazPoliż to live streams during the Covid-19-induced lockdown. In the spirit of Didaskalia ’s mandate, our contributors explore not only dramatic theatre but also dance performance (dramaturgy and choreography of the body). The texts presented in this volume span contemporary and nineteenth-century theatre (correspondence between Irena Solska and Stanisław Eliasz Radzikowski), Polish and international theatre work (e.g. an examination of the presence of animals in Romeo Castellucci’s productions). Perspectives and tools deployed in ongoing debates in theatre are described, including archival theory, affect theory, institutional critique, feminist critique and disability studies.
