Background


A UK premiere from acclaimed Polish directors Teresa and Andrzej Welminski, based on The Comet and other stories by Bruno Schulz.


The Comet marks Teresa and Andrzej Welminski's first return to London since 1982, when they collaborated with Kantor and his renowned experimental theatre company Cricot 2.


With extraordinary humour and stagecraft, the Welminskis bring Schulz's absurd, mythical, yet terrifyingly current tale to life.


Informed by the work of revolutionary theatre practitioner Tadeusz Kantor, this is a production that demands to be experienced.


Special pre-show screening of a Quay Brothers short film Street of Crocodiles.


Film screening 7.00pm Thu to Sat.


In partnership with the 16th Kinoteka Polish Film Festival in London.


Performed in English and Polish with English surtitles.
