That Old Town gallery is tied to the theatre, and what a theatre it is! The Gardzienice Centre for Theatre Practices, founded in 1977 by Włodzimierz Staniewski, is a reason to visit Poland in itself. Why? When they are staging an ancient play, you can sense Dionysus’ beating heart. As the theatre occupies an old palace in Gardzienice, a village near Lublin, the Gallery gives it the presence in the city.
