Łódź Four Cultures Festival to be held in early September
This year's Four Cultures Festival, one of the most important annual events in the central city of Łódź, which covers music, theatre and visual arts, will be held on September 3-6 and due to the pandemic will include a number of online events.
A mainstay of the Łódź cultural scene, the artistic events presented at the festival refer to the multicultural roots of the city, which for years was a melting pot of four cultures and nationalities; Polish, Jewish, German and Russian.
This year, due to the pandemic, the event will be shorter than in previous years and its programme has been adapted to the sanitary situation. The motto of this year's festival, "A future without return", refers to the current pandemic reality.
The 2020 programme includes a concert by the German multi-instrumentalist Niklas Paschburg, a walking tour following the path of long-gone places in Łódź, Gaga/people dance workshops with Israeli choreographer Adi Weinberg, circus workshops for children and a swing dance party with the Big Band of the Academy of Music in the city's Park of Survivors.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, many events will also be streamed online and will be accessible to the public via computers and mobile devices.
