re four cultures responsible for the late 19th-century rise of the mighty industrial Łódź: Poles, Jews, Germans, and Russians had to coexist and cooperate in order for the city to flourish. Traces of the multicultural heritage can still be found all around, both in the city and its inhabitants, and have increasingly become the focus of discourse and examination. The aim of the Four Cultures Festival is to impart a greater understanding of the city's roots through film, literature, theatre and music. The theme of this year's Festival is "Coexistence". Its program includes performances of KAMP!, Izabela Trojanowska, Leszka Biolika, Krzysztof Zalewski, Daniel Spaleniak and Shortparis. Theatre section will be represented by Sardegna Teatro and Compagnia Teatropersona, Kraków's Ludowy Theatre, Poznań's Nowy Theatre and Wrocław's Układ Formalny Theatre. There will be the entire section devoted to various exhibitions tackling such burning issues as the immigration crisis. All performances will take place in various cultural venues: Jaracz Theatre, Art Factory, Musical Theatre, Wytwórnia Club, The Grand Theatre, The Marek Edelman Dialogue Center and Debich Studio.
