The Jewish Drama Competition
Estera Rachel and Ida Kamińskie Jewish Theater in Warsaw has the pleasure to announce the Szymon Szurmiej Contemporary Jewish Drama International Competition.
The competition is open to the public. We welcome all authors who write in Polish and any other language, however, for the work to be accepted in the Competition, it must be translated into one of the following five languages: Polish, Yiddish, English, Russian, Hebrew.
The work submitted to the Competition may not be an adaptation, but must be the author’s original work that has not been previously published or staged. One author may submit one work to the Competition.
The Competition aims to find new, valuable dramatic works inspired by broadly defined Jewish-related topics and to promote contemporary theatrical literature that fosters the development of dialog and understanding regardless of the differences between people due to race, gender, religion, and social situation.
The idea of the Competition – the contemporary Jewish drama – is part of the artistic quest conducted by the Jewish Theater. A theatre that remembers and is not cut off from the present time: it is not a museum. A theater that is a living place cultivating social and intergenerational dialog between cultures, a dialog with history, taking up not only subjects dedicated to the Holocaust and the memory thereof but also identity in general, searching for one’s place in the world, dealing with religion and customs, enslavement and freedom, emancipation, violence (also domestic violence), orphans, rejected, travelers, migrants, and speaks about it using a rich, modern language of the contemporary stage.
The Jewish Theater (the place and the ensemble) is a symbol of a contemporary fate of the Jewish community, it is inseparably tied to Poland’s history and its activity could be acknowledged as a kaddish, the prayer for those who are no longer with us.
The works signed with an emblem should be sent to the address of the Jewish Theater by September 15th, 2021. Any works sent after the expiry of the deadline (the proof confirming that the submission was sent before the deadline expired is the postmark) will not be considered by the Jury. By December 6th, 2021 the Jury will award the Grand Prize (30,000 Polish zloty) and three distinctions (each 5,000 Polish zloty).
The composition of the jury, organizational and technical details connected with the Competition as well as submission form have been published on the website of the Jewish Theater.
Full of hope and eager, we are waiting for your Works.
