RUN! Course for beginners in escaping

➤ 6, 7 February 2019 7.30 p.m.
➤ Powszechny Theatre in Warsaw, Small Stage (Zamoyskiego street 20)

The play draws on biographies and stories of Polish refugees in Iran after World War II. Interviews with people who fled Siberia to the Middle East were collected in the Oral History Archives by Dom Spotkań z Historią, a Polish cultural institution. Delving into those archives, Artur Pałyga used them to pen a script which later inspired Polish and Iranian artists to engage in a joint project.

Set against the images of everyday life in contemporary Iran, the stories told by Poles become a pretext for exploring such topics as the confluence of two cultures, traditional hospitality, but also the present-day oppression by the state and religion.
