The Zbigniew Raszewski Institute
Since 2003, the Zbigniew Raszewski Institute has been documenting, promoting, and animating the Polish theatrical life. The Institute manages the largest collection of various documents related to the theatre in Poland. It runs the portal e-teatr.pl – which is entirely devoted to the Polish theatre as well as the Internet “Encyclopedia of the Polish theatre” (www.encyklopediateatru.pl). Vistors have also acces to a library, a media library and a specialised bookshop.
The Theatre Institute’s archive holds the largest collection of documentation on the contemporary Polish theatre. The archive offers an access to a huge collection of news articles, reviews, photos, theatre programs, playbills, posters, documents referring to the activities of individual scenes, private archives of artists and archives of various institutions. The whole collection – including the portfolios of newspaper clippings, related to the individual artists’ works, various editions of theatre and film festivals, theatre schools and theatre magazines – is available in the Archive’s reading room.
