About us

Living Space Theatre 

is a nomadic theatre founded in 2016 by artists who had graduated from National Theatre Academy in Cracow (Poland). In our work we combine movement, dance, and acting, focused on work with physical body and imagination which are very powerful tools in a creative process. Since the very beginning we cooperated with artists and organizations from USA, China, South Korea, Japan, Poland, Belgium, the Netherlands and Bulgaria (presenting our pieces and organizing dance, movement and acting workshops).

Principal objectives of the Living Space Theatre:

– We, human beings, live in one global space and we need to be responsible and take care of the life around. Through our performances we want to raise voice about actual social issues, tolerance and human rights.

– By theatre events, space between people becomes vivid and hence we want to create a real meeting among actors and the audience.

– We bring theatre life to various spaces that can become alive though the action.

– For us human body is the living space itself (each human being carries their inner experiences). Therefore we are focused on the artistic expression through the movement and dance.

– Living Space Theatre is a laboratory space within which we develop our artistic approach as well as teaching and therapeutic work.
