Here is a full list of all the shows I saw this year as part of the Theatre Olympics held in Wroclaw from 14 October – 14 November 2016. I didn’t see everything and really wish I could have attended more of the talks and performances from the “More Than Theatre” line. The festival was divided into different “lines” Main Section – the masters, Eastern Line – young independent theater from Eastern Europe, Grotowski Institute’s Programme – emerging artists who have worked through the Institute, Lower Silesian Theatre Platform – regional work; More Than Theatre – centers around artistic and social issues relating to the art of people with disabilities.
