Theatre of the Eighth Day (Teatr Ósmego Dnia)

Teatr Ósmego Dnia was founded
in 1964 and soon became one of the
most significant alternative student
theatre troupes in Poland. Its name
derives from the Polish poet K.I.
Ga?czyn ?ski, who wrote that “On the
seventh day, the Lord God rested, and
on the eighth, He created theatre.”
For 25 years and despite constant
surveillance by the secret police and
government censorship, Theatre of
the Eighth Day managed to create
some of the most important works
for the Polish stage. The company,
which is based in Poznan ?, is
recognized as a leader among
Polish alternative theatres.
