10 years of The Gdańsk Shakespeare Theatre

On the 24 February we celebrate the 10 years since the Gdańsk Shakespeare Theatre has been established as a public institution of culture.

We invite our friends and audience to celebrate with us! 

The event will be an innovative encounter of architecture and artistic installations in public space. The Gdańsk Art Academy students led by Professor Robert Florczak will surround the theatre building with interactive multimedia installations referring to the works of William Shakespeare.

Take part in a unique stroll, following Shakespeare’s trail,  leading to 10 installations, surrounding the theatre building.

Visit also the theatre inside, where you will find a hint of the Gdańsk Shakespeare Theatre history through the posters, photographs, costumes and props gathered during the last ten years.

  1. Act I – Prologue

And oftentimes, to win us to our harm,
The instruments of darkness tell us truths,
Win us with honest trifles, to betray  ’s
In deepest consequence. –

– Banko

  1. Act II – Macbeth
If he do bleed,
I’ll gild the faces of the grooms withal,

– Lady Macbeth

  1. Act III – Ophelia

God has given you one face, and you
make yourselves another.

– Hamlet
