Past Event

This event was on Thurs 22 October, 7pm

An evening of readings, images, memories and film celebrate the Polish artist, set designer, theatre director and founder of the avant-garde theatre ensemble Cricot 2 Tadeusz Kantor. Shown at the Whitechapel Gallery in 1976, his pioneering work remains powerful and influential today, challenging conventional boundaries between installation, performance and stage.

Born in Kraków in 1915, this year marks the centennial of his birth and this event brings together those who worked with him, and those influenced by his eclectic and experimental way of working. Speakers include Richard Demarco, Jack Klaff, Mischa Twitchin and Noel Witts. Organised with two of Kantor’s close collaborators in the UK, Sandy Nairne and Faynia Williams.

Supported by the Polish Cultural Institute in London
