Summary/Abstract: The article is an account of the project “Teren TR” (“TR Terrain” - TR Warsaw 7-26 Jun 2015), whose aim was to allow young creators to become noticed in the world of the theatre and theatre experiments (e.g. through connecting theatre with other branches of art). The author analyses and interprets three out of five performances: Ewelina płacze (Evelyn is crying) by Anna Karasińska, Grind/r by Piotr Trojan and #Jaś #i #Małgosia (#Hansel #and #Gretel) by Michał Szymonik and Elżbieta Depta. She also points out the games with illusion and reality, manifested distance from the topic and metatextual commentary. Leszczyńska notices that the high quality of the performances that reached the finals is determined by formal experiments and allusions to contemporary reality. However, she also claims that the performances were conceived with a particular festival in mind, and outside of this context their formal innovation can be less attractive.
