Janusz Głowacki (pronounced “Guo-vatski”): Born in Poznań, he made his name as a novelist and screenwriter in the 1960’s and 1970’s with a distinctive acerbic, witty style, exposing the hypocrisy of modern society. The declaration of martial law in 1981 caught him in London for the opening of his play “Cinders”. He emigrated to NYC the next year. “Cinders” opened again in NYC in 1984, directed by John Madden and starring Christopher Walken, to great critical acclaim. Janusz exercised the same sense of the absurd combined with a penetrating, cynical sense of humour as an observer of life on the other side of the Iron Curtain and of the Atlantic. “Hunting Cockroaches” was staged in over 40 theaters in the US and in several European cities, winning several prestigious awards. His next hit, “Antigone in New York”, was translated in 20 languages.



Jan Kaczmarek: Born in Poznań and living in LA, he won the 2005 Academy Award for best music score for “Finding Neverland”. He recently composed two symphonic pieces: “Cantata for Freedom” to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the Solidarity movement (2005) and “Oratorio 56” marking the 50th anniversary of the popular uprising in his native city and preceding the even more dramatic events of Budapest the same year. He also set up the Rozbitek Institute, inspired by the Sundance Institute in the US, as a new European hub for the development of film, theater, music and new media.
