Wierszalin

Genuine ambassadors of Polish culture, honoured with numerous awards, recognised both at home and abroad by audiences and critics alike, the company is considered one of the most interesting groups founded in Poland after 1989. Wierszalin is, above all, a company which affords spectators unique emotions, and strongly influences their feelings. Like it or hate it, its art leaves nobody indifferent.

Founded in 1991 by Piotr Tomaszuk, Tadeusz Słobodzianek and actors formerly working at “Miniatura” Puppet and Actor Theatre in Gdańsk, this puppet-actor ensemble is based in Supraśl near Białystok, while the spiritual seat of the company is Nowe Jeruzalem founded in the 1930s in the Białystok area by the prophet Eliasz Klimowicz. Wierszalin means community, it means permanent moving about the sphere of the sacrum, it means theatre-feast, an attempt to mystically unite artists and spectators. The company gain inspiration by drawing on the culture and religion of the Polish-Belorussian borderland, using the dull aesthetics of folk art, where it is simplicity and emotionalism expressed through song and music that become the basic principle.
