TR Warszawa - Kornél Mundruczó

Pieces of a Woman

A traumatic experience marks the beginning of a complete turnaround. Thirty-year-old Maja loses her baby. Will she be able to find the motivation necessary to fight for herself? Will she be able to reclaim her personal freedom? Following his captivating Imitation of Life, presented at the 2018 Athens Festival, internationally acclaimed film and theatre director Kornél Mundruczó and the TR Warszawa’s ensemble deliver an absorbing family drama, centred around a woman in modern-day Warsaw.  The story of Pieces of a Woman, based on Kata Wéber’s script, was recently adapted by Mundruczó into a motion picture.

The performance contains strobe lights.

With Greek and English surtitles

Young theatre and dance researchers introduce audiences to the performances


For many of us, a Festival performance is a fascinating, unexplored universe waiting to be discovered. What is the starting point of a performance? What “school” does it fall into? What can be inferred about the process of art making through the style of a particular performance?


Through this new practice, launched in the summer of 2021, the Athens Epidaurus Festival, in cooperation with the Theatre Studies Department of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, as part of the Master’s programme “Greek and World Theatre: Drama, Performance, Education”, invites post-graduate students – theatre researchers and dance experts – to delve into the Peiraios 260 performances and facilitate access to this creative world for audiences. Young researchers and experts will whet festival-goers’ appetites and provide them with theoretical tools in order to give them a better understanding of the performance they are about to enjoy.
