Respublika is a total theatre experience, brought to you by a collective of actors, performers and stage managers who engage in an attempt to question their relationship to work, and, by extension, ours. Can creating music and organising a dance party be considered a form of resistance? Could the idea of a republic based on alternative economic principles give rise to a new raison d'être?

Respublika is a new theatrical experience, directed by Polish artist Łukasz Twarkowski, in which the public is invited to form part of a community that shares food, stories and even a sauna. An immersive 6-hour experience which we invite you to join in. Come and discover the Grande Halle as you’ve never seen it before, transformed for the occasion into a temporary city where possibilities are redefined.
