Welcome to the last Polish/English wedding before the borders close, where you, the audience, play the role of the wedding guests led by a charismatic Mistress of Ceremonies – Margot Przymierska. Soon restrictions on mixed marriages will be implemented, but until then it’s keep calm and party on!
The show will take place on March 29, 2019 at 8.00 p.m. at the Chats Palace in London.
Wesele / Wedding is a participatory one woman show, made in the European tradition of absurdist political comedy. This collage of integration stories, raunchy wedding rituals and disco polo sing-alongs, peppered with Polish and Esperanto, interrogates the role of traditional values, family bonds and whether popular culture can bring us together.
Inspired by a 1901 masterpiece of Polish literature by S. Wyspianski, ‘Wesele/ Wedding’ presents truths of the Polish migrant experience set against the provocations of the mainstream media. The show explores gender stereotypes, tradition, religion & family values, exposing how they shape society’s perceptions of itself & the ‘other.’ Moments of comedy are interspersed with poignant and sometimes dark ‘off-script’ stories of love, family bonds stretched over many miles and anecdotes about migrants’ lives and attempts at integration.
