I write to You with the kind request and proposition of sponsorship and taking patronage of the project that has never been realized either in Legnica or in Poland or anywhere around the world before. Our aspiration and purpose is an absolutely unique social and artistic project which we have called 1st International Theatre Festival “The City”. It will be the first this kind of the Festival in the world! With best artistic regards - Jacek Głomb, Executive and Artistic Director of Teatr Modjeska of Legnica.

Theatres from different countries around the world invited to that event will realise artistic projects for venue chosen during the work visit. They will prepare their production in their own place of work and later during the rehearsals (one week) will “write them in” into the assigned venues. The assumption of the Festival is that all prepared performances are absolutely unique, created specially for this occasion and besides all of them will have its world premieres here in Legnica. Therefore, the later exploitation of the productions in the countries from which the invited guest companies will have come will be a natural continuation of the project, this project that we would like to “infect” whole theatrical world with. International event will be accompanied with concerts and happenings to join city and its community into the Festival`s life. The exceptionality of the project makes us invite the most important and prestigious national-scale media such as TV networks, newspapers, radiostations and magazines into its realisation through covering the artistic event. Dear Sirs, before World War II in Legnica there had been six buildings used by the theatre. They were visited by thousand of citizens. Since there had been no TV, everybody had attended the theatrical shows... Today most of the places are in ruin or neglect but our theatre makes frequent used of them, and so reclaims them to the people of our town. To such venues we would like to invite you. But our point is not playing in strange places, not the outdoors performances popular in the Western Europe – but the conscious choice of a place in which we intend to perform. We want to “mark the space of performance” by the absolute relation of a chosen place with a story being told by us. We have great experience in this field because in this attitude, out of the idea of “true stories shown in real places”, we have created the most pro-urban theatre in Poland. In such way we have created our the most celebrated and awarded productions – “The Ballad of Zakaczawie”, “Coriolanus”, “Made in Poland”. Now we would like to invite You and artists from different countries here to create the most pro-urban theatre festival in the world! Legnica with her embroiled history and with written in her walls culture of so many nations is the best place for such meeting - is the exceptional place. ************************************************************************************** Name and dates: 1st International Theatre Festival “The City” 13-16 September 2007 Organisers: Teatr im.
