In Polish, the word “emigrant” is grammatically masculine. Despite this, Teatr Emigrant is made up of women only, and provides a creative space for women emigrants from different countries. The theatre was created in 2019 in Poznań, out of great love for theatre and a need to express oneself in a foreign place. It is the only theatre of its kind in Poland. The company is managed by Olha Hryhorash, a professional actress and director from Kharkiv. For the past three years, the theatre has been working in the premises of Fundacja Barak Kultury in Poznań at 21 Aleje Marcinkowskiego, where it has produced four premieres.
