The Nowy Teatr International Cultural Centre was opened in April 2016. After eight years of operation, and almost two years of modernization of the buildings at Madalińskiego 10/16, the team led by director Krzysztof Warlikowski finally begun to work in-house in Warsaw's Mokotów district.
Nowy Teatr seeks to expand the area of dialogue with the audience not confining itself to theater performances alone. It aims to be a place for a whole new artistic situation. An area free for artists and curators to create, a space defined by people full of ideas.
Theater reamins Krzysztof Warlikowski’s main area of interest. Individuals invited to collaborate are faced with the task of cocreating a new concept of this place. Constructing the theater’s new building at the corner of Madalińskiego and Sandomierska Streets is one of the challenges Nowy Teatr faces.
Each event is to be a starting point for discussions, meetings, converations, an exchange of thoughts and words. The Nowy Teatr is not simply about giving performances but rather creating a space for dialogue and initiating exchanges even on the most inconvenient of topics. Thanks to the fact that we have managed to group together so many creative personalities within our Nowy Teatr team, we intend to propose an original and artistic key to understanding the place in which we live and work.
