TERAZ POLIŻ (Lick it now) is the only professional all-female theatre group in Poland, established in Warsaw in 2008 by actresses Marta Jalowska, Dorota Glac, Adrianna Kornecka, Dominika Strojek, Kamila Worobiej and directors Ula Kijak and Marta Miłoszewska (formerly Marta Ogrodzińska). Since the very beginning, its artistic endeavors have been centered on women and femininity. It produces and stages theatre performances, happenings, concerts and performative readings open to the public; it runs theatre workshops and discussions. Since 2015, the group has been engaged in historical research projects aimed at restoring the memory of women who contributed greatly to Poland’s modern-day art and the world’s cultural heritage. The group has embraced non-hierarchical organisational principles as it continues to explore different collaborative structures, both onstage and within the association.
