In 1992 Andrzej Mathiasz founded Teatr Projekt, gathering a group of very young people in order to produce the Ulica Grodzka performance. Thus the first outdoor theatre company in Lublin was born.
Two first projects realised by Teatr Project, Ulica Grodzka and The Legend, were strongly rooted in the history of Lublin, but due to their interesting and easily recognised theatre language they became significant events presented at the theatre festivals at home and abroad. The young actors performed in Poznań (the Malta festival), Grenoble, Lyon and Fribourg, near Cologne.
The next outdoor spectacle, on a similar scale, revealed changes happening within the company. A Good Thief, a performance based on an original concept, tells a story about a good thief who having died on the cross is the first person to arrive in the paradise, still completely empty. The performance, premiered at the Theatre Confrontations festival in Lublin in 1997, was presented at the Theatre Reminiscences in Cracow, A PART in Katowice, MASKI in Poznań. It was awarded the third prize at the Łódź Theatre Encounters in 1998 and the second prize at the Toruń Theatre Side-Spaces.
Teatr Project returned to its roots in 1999. Paradeforthe EndoftheWorld is a large scale outdoor, site-specific performance. It is inspired by the millennium and apocalyptic prophesies in which we often encounter the motive of worms triumphing after the end of the world.
At this edition of Theatre Confrontations Andrzej Mathiasz will present another indoor performance.
The Confession of an Ancient Child is a spectacle premiered on October 4, 2000.
Thirty years and nothing for the posterity – a Russian used
to say it about himself. His name was Łunin. However,
I can tell about myself more: Forty years and even greater nothing!
