Restrictions on mixed marriages will be implemented, but until then it’s keep calm and party on!

Wesele / Wedding is a participatory one-woman show, made in the European tradition of absurdist political comedy. This collage of integration stories, raunchy wedding rituals and disco polo sing-along, peppered with Polish and Esperanto, interrogates the role of traditional values, family bonds and whether popular culture can bring us together.

Written and performed by Margot Przymierska. This event is organised in connection with the project eMigrating Landscapes led since 2013 by Dr Ula Chowaniec (Research Fellow, UCL School of Slavonic and Eastern Europeal Studies - SSEES).
