Nowy Teatr - Krzysztof Warlikowski
Odyssey. A Story for Hollywood 


International co-production

Drawing on the Homeric theme of 'return home', renowned Polish director Krzysztof Warlikowski creates a brand-new performance revolving around a woman's Odyssey of sorts during World War II, inspired by Homer's epic and two works by Hanna Krall, Chasing the King of Hearts and Story for Hollywood. The main heroine, a modern-day Penelope, risked her life to ensure her husband's return home; a story that could very well be adapted into a Hollywood movie, as the title suggests.

With Greek and English surtitles

Due to the ongoing pandemic, all performance dates are subject to change
