Zamenhof” Cultural Centre; the children’s show “Apolodor” by the “Puck” Puppet Theatre in Cluj-Napoca, which will be presented on the stage of the Puppet Theatre in Bialystok.

2010 has been a true tour de force for ICR Warsaw, which has been running one of the most ambitious cultural projects addressed to the Polish public, Romania’s Year in Poland, conceived as a series of festivals dedicated to Romanian culture, held in some of Poland’s most representative cultural centres: Warsaw, Krakow, Poznan and Bialystok.
