Growing number of artistic schools and academies makes more and more difficult to get a joba as a musician, painter or stage director. Data of Central Office of Statistics aren’t promising; almost one fourth of the graduates can’t find an employmet in his/her chosen profession. In defiance of statistics and labour market difficulties we decided to turn over Malarnia Stage to debutants – after all one who doesn’t risk doesn’t have a chance to discover new artistic talents. We have a hunch that all their names will be the household ones…

Every season we want to give young creators a chance for a premiere, let they begin their professional itinerary at us, let they begin in Katowice. The project appointed by R. Talarczyk as its goal has to spot theatre talents and enable students and graduates from Silesia region to produce their first artistic vision. It is worth to add on that Mr Talarczyk earlier as the theatre general manager first gave a chance to Artur Pałyga or director Ewelina Marciniak, today recognized personalities in theatre milieu.
