Following his riveting Imitation of Life, presented at the 2018 Athens Festival, the internationally acclaimed film and theatre director Kornél Mundruczó, renowned for his smashing theatrical hit The Bat and the movie White God (Prize Un Certain Regard at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival), returns to the Athens Festival with his newest production, a commission of the world-famous Polish theatre TR Warzsawa. Written by Kata Wéber, Mundruczó’s regular collaborator, screenwriter of White God and dramaturge of Imitation of Life, Pieces of a Woman is a gripping, powerful family drama, whose main character is a woman living in contemporary Warsaw.

A traumatic experience marks the beginning of a complete turnaround. Thirty-year-old Maja loses her baby. Will she able to find the motivation necessary to fight for herself and her loved ones? Will she be able to claim her personal freedom and self-fulfilment? According to the director, “the path taken by Maja is everywoman’s path. Maja experiences what all women experience when their longings are squashed, and hurt dominates them until they can unfurl and re-open, ready for life with greater awareness, depth, and, of course, joy.”
