Aims and activities of the organisation:

The ,,Baj Pomorski” Theatre was founded in 1945 in Bydgoszcz

by Irena Pikiel-Samorewiczowa (artist from Vilna). After one

year it was transferred to Toruń and located in building after

the German theatre.

In ,,Baj Pomorski” worked exceptional artists, for example

Stanisław Stapf or Joanna Piekarska. Here was a polish preview

,,A Midsummer’s Night Dream” in puppet version. 1960s (time

of Leszek Śmigielski direction) brought a change of profile of

"Baja Pomorski" from the traditional puppet scene to the

theater seeking new expressions and open to the artistic life of

Toruń.

It was during this period that the greatest premiere of theater

history was made, the ambitious performances inspired by the

tradition of folk theater and the innovative staging of

contemporary writings by regional writers. The educational

activity of the theater developed in the 80's. At present the

theater (with director Zbigniew Lisowski) promotes

contemporary dramaturgy, for example Marta Guśniowska and

Malina Prześluga.
