Our project in the Jewish Theater is an onstage realization of a meeting, which has never taken place in public: between Polish Jews and the supporters of Legia Warszawa football club.
Working with two strongly unified groups, we are looking for the answers to the questions about the motives, ways and advantages of forming such collective identities. The space of theatrical fiction offers a “real” dialogue between the Jewish Theater actors and Legia supporters. The question is: what is the outcome of a dialogue between the two groups who, after all, are all Warsaw inhabitants: looking for common areas or even more antagonism?
It is our dream to create a situation of understanding with all the essential differences, a situation of respect, to find the foundation on which such understanding is possible. Keeping in mind the words attributed to Voltaire: “I don’t agree with what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it,” this foundation is an area of undeniable human values. And this is not only the problem of chosen communities, but of entire Poland, divided today like never before.
