Insomnia

On stage and outdoors, classical and alternative, for adults and for kids: Kraków welcomes locals and visitors to Theatre Night for the thirteenth time (15 June). Major theatres and independent stages have prepared myriad attractions: presentations of some of the finest spectacles of the last season, concerts, workshops, outdoor events and guided tours, all under the watchful eyes of the curators who will be on hand to make sure that all we’re missing is sleep! The majority of spectacles are in Polish, but there will also be a few performances for speakers of Shakespeare’s tongue.

The Kraków Cultural Forum hosts the English Touring Theatre Company with their farce It's Only a Bed! presenting the adventures of an English bride-to-be who embarks on a trip to Kraków after her fiancé cheats on her. Barakah Theatre transports the audience to the dazzling world of glitter, sequins and feathers with Kraków’s only drag revue Dancing Queen. Outdoor events include performances focusing on movement, facial expressions and gestures rather than words. At the Small Market Square, Nikoli Theatre presents a premiere of its spectacle Dog Suite, while the Kraków Street Theatre “Kaleidoscope Stage” shows off its pyrotechnic display Birth of a Star. VIS À VIS Theatre comes to the Szczepański Square to present a classic of the comedia dell’arte genre Pierrot and Colombine, while the Niepodległości Square in Podgórze hosts Dagestan Fairytale and The Emperor’s New Clothes by the Zatrzymać Obrotówkę Group. We are in for a dazzling, fascinating, sleepless night!
