On March 9, a diploma play, FEVER, directed by Mariusz Grzegorzek will be performed on stage of the Shakespeare Theatre in Gdańsk!

The graduation play of our students of the Acting Department was invited to be performed on the stage of one of the most unusual theatres in Poland. The Gdańsk Shakespeare Theatre, an ultra-modern building, was erected on the site of the first public theatre in Poland - the Fencing School, which operated in the 17th century. The theatre has a wooden interior, and its roof can be opened in 3 minutes allowing both the actors and the audience experiencing almost original Elizabethan theatre conditions. The theatre is the seat of the Shakespeare Festival.

The show Fever is a winner of two awards granted by the FIESAD (International Festival of Drama Schools) in Rabat, Morocco. A fourth year acting student, Ksenia Tchórzko received the Best Actress Award , and the whole team was granted a Special Jury Prize for: " an unequivocal team performance and a sophisticated combination of singing, stage movement and acting expression producing a mystical theatrical experience” Cast of the show directed by Mariusz Grzegorzek: Izabela Dudziak, Mateusz Grodecki, Faustyna Kazimierska, Karol Nowiński, Piotr Pacek, Anna Paliga, Zuzanna Puławska, Robert Ratuszny, Aleksandra Skraba, Michał Surosz, Ksenia Tchórzko, Filip Warot and Elżbieta Zajko.

What should the audience be prepared for? – It is a thick, pulsating, collage structure. Twenty individual, various scenes. As a whole, paranoid, in Dadaist poetics – a cabaret, horror, poetic evening. There is grotesque, humour, something pathetic, something poetic and beautiful. We derived inspiration from completely different sources: on one hand, from high art: classical music, poetry, classical and modern dance. On the other hand, we were inspired by the low and ordinary: unpunished internet, stupid video blogs, social media, or pop music and dance. – says the director of the show, Mariusz Grzegorzek.
