Piwnica pod Baranami

Rynek Główny 27, 31-010 Kraków

Piwnica Pod Baranami is the most bizarre and the most wonderful cabaret in the world – according to its viewers and friends (and the latter become friends the moment they set their foot inside). And there's a fair chance they are right. There are no directors, no contracts, no money; all proceeds from tickets are shared among the performing artists (and the hall in which they perform only has 80 seats, so the revenue is rather small). The cabaret has been active continuously since 1956. From that moment on, the cabaret performed some fifty, maybe sixty premières, many times repeated, of course, but never in the same form, often abroad. Everything here flows and everything is uncertain. You never know if a performance will take place, what time it will take place and how long it will last. You never know who will perform and what the topic of the performance will be. The cabaret has a team of performers, both permanent and temporary, great composers, and stage designers who are known in the whole country and abroad. The group creates a unique ambience. The craziest fiction is never as hilarious as the truth. This is why the texts used by the ensemble were never provided by professional comedians. They were uttered in conversations with dignitaries, in speeches, press articles and fragments of scientific writing. And how they were provided! The censorship, however, was seldom content...
