Marta Górnicka is a Polish theatre director, author and singer, a graduate of the Warsaw Theatre Academy and the Chopin University of Music. She founded the Political Voice Institute (PVI) in 2019 at the Maxim Gorki Theater in Berlin, where she has been developing her practice of the chorus in its formal and political dimension. In Górnicka’s choruses, voices and bodies, individually and combined, are intrinsically political instruments. She exploits a variety of choral formats to instigate confrontations with unbearable realities. Górnicka uses the stage as a platform to enact discourses of conflict and resolution, creating opportunities for members of communities to air their voices but also recognize each other’s common humanity.
