Summary/Abstract: A report on the seventh edition of the Bitter Lamentations Festival (Center for the Thought of John Paul II in Warsaw; 10.02 – 20.03.2016; festival directors: Redbad Klijnstra and Paweł Dobrowolski), titled “New Epiphanies.” Liliana Hermetz briefly outlines the structure and premises of the festival and how it operates in the space of Warsaw. Then she analyzes a few theater and performance events: 'The Sign of Jonah' by Paweł Passini, 'sad to sit in your chair while they’re dreaming up wars' by Jarosław Tumidajski, 'The Last Supper' by Jakub Kamieński and the Supermarket Group, 'Red Carpet' by Mirek Kaczmarek, and 'Mystery Play' by Igor Gorzkowski. Summing up, she concludes that: “Using a variety of aesthetics and with varying degrees of success, the artists inquired into the human condition and into the challenges man has to face.”
