The Main Contest, INFERNO, comprises the most distinguished and widely discussed performances from last season, that showcase the wide range of talents and artistic aspirations of Polish directors. INFERNO is a core section of the festival, as its main purpose is to present the diverse landscape of Polish theatre life as well as to familiarize audiences with the latest trends and areas of artistic exploration and experimentation undertaken by prominent and acclaimed directors. Perhaps this is the last era when the theatre can comment on reality, ask hard questions and look for uneasy answers. Maybe we will wake up one day soon in a land where only compromised theatre will be possible and it will surely be valuable and perfectly structured, but safe and deprived of dreams about transforming the world through art. And theatre is, after all, a form of anxiety and impatience, the barometer of social awareness and unconscious societal needs.
