“KANAPA” PROJECT
KANAPA Project is an unusual undertaking based on a very strict
cooperation between playwright, actors and director. The author, Patrycja
Babicka, has written her play after she had seen actor’s pictures.
The aim of the project is to tell a story of four house mates living in the same
flat together and spending most of their spare time in a living room. Sofa,
existing primarily as a physical prop used just to have a rest after a long day
at work, will become a significant metaphor of searching for a new identity of
people living in a world which is not actually their world.
The main theme of the project will be alienation on a social, cultural and
emotional level.
Performing the play written especially for a project’s purposes by Patrycja
Babicka would be fulfilling one of our aims written in the mission statement.

Patrycja Babicka is a graduate from Polish
Philology Department at Jagiellonski
University in Cracow, Poland, however she
preferred to be called playwright. Currently
she is working as a PR and Marketing
specialist. For the last two years she has
been working with the publishing industry.
She debuted in Polish theatre magazine
“Dialog” with a play “Criminal drama”. Her
other plays are: “Natalia was before Myself”,
“The vicim has lagged behind”, ‘The tragedy
of the sixth wall”, “The city of the sin”.
