Main goal of the festival is to present whole spectrum of the phenomenon in contemporary theater, with a special kind of new trends and theatrical techniques, as well as the most sensational act of the Polish alternative scene.
Our project’s aim is to develop skills of the artists participating in it, raise qualifications, inspire and to show the audience the richness and diversity of contemporary theater. The OFF Situations festival is an opportunity to learn invisible form of theater in a commercial artistic environment and it’s also an opportunity for independent theaters to exchange experience, establish cooperation and present themselves to a wider audience.
The OFF Situations festival has been annually taking place at the beginning of June. During the event students of PAPA – Poznan Academy of Performing Arts, will present diploma performances. In 2017, our initiative reached even further, towards the organization of International Theater Meetings.
The Academy of Performing Arts organizing the IV OFF Situations wants to create a place for people interesting in culture and personal development in culture. It’s a great way to gain some stage expirience as looking at the further caarer in arts by inviting other theaters presenting uncommon or more widely known theater tehniques including mime, masks, puppet theater, physical theater, polyphonic singing, theater of improvisation, we want to interest the audience and Poznan’s scenes with alternative forms of arts.
In addition to the performances, the program also includes workshops on theatrical forms presented at the festival. It being for acting, dance, vocal, mask, pantomime and improvisation workshops. Both artists and viewers who will take part in the event can participate in the workshop.
