About Us / BramaLAB

BramaLAB

BramaLAB is an artistic laboratory, which is an umbrella term for different theatrical, musical, experimental, research and educational projects. It's activities are initiatives of individual members of the workshop participants, volunteers and friends of Teatr Brama. This model of cooperation doesn't define a leader for all BramaLAB activities, as a leader emerges on basis of who brought the idea or it's a partnership on the equal grounds for all participants of the project.

Who is Afraid of the Wolf?

The performance was inspired by the fairy tale about three little pigs and the big bad wolf. But, has anyone wondered what this story would look like today? Everyone has the right to seek reparations in court and everyone has the right to defend themselves. In the performance, the three pigs and the wolf face each other in court, both sides of the trial have their own arguments and reasons for this situation. Who will live happily ever after this time?

The entire performance takes place during a trial in a fairy-tale land. Judge Owl has to settle a dispute in which the Wolf is accused by the Three Pigs of destroying their homes, his goal being their consumption. During the trial, other fairy-tale characters appear on the scene, such as Masha and the Bear as well as Little Red Riding Hood. Putting the story together one by one, it turns out that the Wolf's bark is much worse than his bite, and the whole thing is one big misunderstanding about the Wolf's difficult life situation. The performance makes reference to modern day political situations such as the migrant and refugee crisis taking place in Europe and tries to instill into the audience the ideas of tolerance and altruism in a funny way.

Exit

Exit is the first original performance of the adults group of the Teatr Brama. Working on the performance gave adults the opportunity to distance themselves from everyday life, from home, work and children. Workshops, rehearsals and staging of the performance gave them relief, it was a moment of reflection, a moment of escape into themselves. The performance raises issues that are important to it's cast, including the fact that their everyday life is dominated by obligations, duties and routine. In the eternal rush for life, that keeps going faster and faster every day, a group of strangers meet in a dead-end street. They forget about losing the race, they meet their unfulfilled dreams, forgotten ideals, face themselves and each other. Accustomed to "no way out" situations, they seek courage to listen to their hidden desires and believe in miracles. EXIT is always there. EXIT is everywhere.

Lysistrata

"Lysistrata" was the group project of the 2019-2020 European Solidarity Corps volunteers project, working under the guidance of Jennifer Crissey. The fearless women of Teatr Index were their actresses. The project was originally planned as a theatrical performance, but due to the pandemic it was transformed into a short film. "Lysistrata" is an ancient Greek comedy by Aristophanes. It is a comical story about the extraordinary mission of women to end the Peloponnesian war between Greek cities by denying all men of their country any sexual activity.
