Theatre (english / français)
Scena Prezentacje Theatre was created 25 years ago in Warsaw by Romuald Szejd, who is uninterruptedly the artistic director of this place. The place itself is very special; it's not situated in a traditional theatre building but an old silver and bronze mill Norblin (at present The Museum of Engineering). The first premiere was "Heloise and Abelard" by Ronald Duncan. The one presented for the jubilee of Scena Prezentacje in October 2003 was based on "A la recherché du temps perdu" by Marcel Proust ("The Time recovered").
Scena Prezentacje is interested mainly in contemporary repertory: French, English, American, Polish. Among the authors were presented: Edward Albee, Ingmar Bergman, Marguerite Duras, Friedrich Dürrenmatt, Witold Gombrowicz, Graham Greene, Ronald Harwood, Harold Pinter, Eugene Ionesco, Tenessee Williams. Scena Prezentacje doesn't keep the stationery company. For every new production Romuald Szejd uses to engage the best Polish actors from others theatres. He also gives the possibility of stage debut for talented young actors from theatre schools in Warsaw and Łódź. At present in its repertory Prezentacje has - among others - plays of Woody Allen, Lars Norén, Agnes Jaoui and Jean Pierre Bacri, Eric-Emmanuel Schmidt. During those 25 years theatre also has invited international celebrities. Famous French film actress Annie Girardot and Andrzej Seweryn - the leading actor and director of Comédie Française gave on it's stage guest performances last year.
The ambition of Romuald Szejd is to present on the Polish artistic market the novelties from Paris and others "theatrical" capitals of Europe. Prezentacje has it's own auditory - well educated people from middle and upper middle class, who look for the good entertainment on the highest artistic level and care to have a good passtime in a more sophisticated style.
