Theatre Collectives, Panel 2: Doing Things the Polish Way


The following records the second panel discussion during the conference ‘Theater, Art and Research Collectives’, organised by the Institute of Theatre and Media Arts in the Faculty of Polish and Classical Philology at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, in collaboration with the Malta Festival, on 19 June 2018. The panel comprised the directors Michał Borczuch, Anna Smolar and Justyna Sobczyk, each of whom works both in collectives and in institutional theatres, and thus have experience from both sides of the spectrum. The scholars Stanisław Godlewski and Justyna Michalik moderated the discussion. Other conference participants were invited to join the debate and were free to speak throughout. The transcript below has been edited and slightly abridged by Stanisław Godlewski.
