The 39th edition of Krakow Theatrical Reminiscences expands the field of the theatre to include forms such as a court trial, a mass, a dinner, a staged lecture, and an exhibition. The programmeof the festival is divided into two major themes. In the first we focus on the politics of performance and ask how and why visual artists make theatre, often trying to deconstruct it by whatever means possible. The other theme refers to the political crisis in Ukraine and Russia and the artists' response to the growing antagonisms and nationalisms. Projects, debates, and activity pose the question whether art can work as a laboratory of critical and political thought, a factory of possible and impossiblescenarios that rework reality as we know it.

Performance Now showcases a selection of the most interesting performances by contemporary artists combining theatre, visual arts, and civic activism. It focuses on how visual artists create performance, often attempting to deconstruct, negate or subvert traditional narrative theater. Bringing together some of the most significant practitioners today, Performance Now surveys critical and experimental currents in performance internationally featuring works by exceptional artists.
