WESELE / WEDDING is an immersive one woman comedy cabaret about the last Polish - English wedding before the borders close, told by a real life Polish wedding emcee (not a cleaner!).
This collage of integration stories, raunchy wedding rituals and disco polo sing-alongs, peppered with Polish and Esperanto, dismantles (or perpetuates?) the East European stereotypes, interrogates role of traditional values, family bonds and whether popular culture can bring us together.
The show supported by the Arts Council England, Polish Cultural Institute, UCL Festival of Culture, Rich Mix, Chats Palace, Tom Thumb Theatre, POW! Thanet Festival and Voila! Europe Festival.
