Photography kills people – exhibition of theatre photos by Romano Martinis. In 1969, Romano Martinis became the first stage photographer to document Tadeusz Kantor’s theatrical work. Their collaboration lasted for twenty years, until Kantor’s death. Due to their completeness and quality, Romano Martinis’ stage pictures represent an unique document for understanding Tadeusz Kantor’s leading role in the cultural life of the twentieth century.

The exhibition is open during the whole period of the festival.


directed by: TV S. Zajączkowski, 1984
Screening of Tadeusz Kantor’s performance with English subtitles

1h 30 min

The metaphor of the performance is the visionary home-returning, the resistless necessity for fey provoked by watching old family pictures. The extinct world’s figures appear. They represent not only Kantor’s life, but his people and their vicissitudinary story from the village Wielopole near Krakow.

Tadeusz Kantor (1915 Wielopole – 1990 Krakow)
One of the most significant art and theatre reformers in the last century. Passionate and willful director, actor, author, brilliant theoretician, anti-painter, artist, heretic happening-participant obsessed and vanguard artist. He stripped all the traditional theatricality, created a totally new theatrical world and named it dead theatre.
