Akademickie Spotkania Teatralne KLAMRA
Every March the Od Nowa club changes into a real theatre. It is almost impossible to believe that the club that hosts loud rock concerts can turn into a serene sanctuary for the theater arts. The first Academic Theatre Meetings KLAMRA took place in 1992. The meetings of theater groups from all over the country have since taken place annually. Klamra is a chance to encounter concemporary alternative theater in search for new means of expression. The audience are the only critics and their reception—the duration of the applauds—is the only reward. Perhaps that’s the reason the theatre groups feel so comfortable in Od Nowa and return to the festival again and again. Many outstanding theaters performed on the club boards, among others Teatr Ósmego Dnia, Wierszalin, Kana, Biuro Podróży, Cogitaur, Cinema, Porywacze Ciał. Besides known theaters, beginners, amateur student groups, “angry youth” also present their works.
