Teatr Snow was created in 1986. It is mainly concerned with poetry as a way of perceiving the world a means of examining reality. Metaphorical expressions of reality and simple structures, which make it possible to create several layers of meaning, are the linking features of the theatre's performances. Its most important poetic elements are the shortening of narrative and the overlapping of pictures, as well as variable movement carefully chosen to suit each play. The company shares A. Artaud's belief that the theatre doesn't lend itself to stage presentations of the literary world, and that the real theatre, similar to culture, has never been written. The theatre's most important premieres have been "Temptation", "On the Way to Paradise", "The Republic of Dreams", "The Sanatorium" and "Journeys". Theatre has participated in festivals in Jelenia Góra, Gandava, Grualiasco and Archangielsk. It has also performed at EXPO'92 in Seville and in Sweden, Denmark, Czechoslovakia, Hungary and several times in Germany.Teatr Snów played in International Street and Open-Air Theatres Festival Feta in 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000

In empty space a wardrobe is a refuge, home and world. Its doors separate prose from poetry. Wardrobe's Owner sometimes opens them in an attempt to create another version of reality. A better one? Perhaps only bizarre, or perhaps sinister. Ocasionally he lets the chosen ones go through the wardrobe and reach the other side. Thus, he sets his theatre in motion. Manipulating, luring into something and kindly permitting something he intrudes into life. Will they this time be able to love, rejoice or suffer? The imprisonment of Wardrobe's Owner doesn't solve anything. Who is then to establish the rules? Isn't it better to choose an escape from freedom? Then everything turns out simple. There is no need to make choices. Is Wardrobe's Owner happy? In fact, he is more lonely than those whose strings he pulls, than those who have to endure his tricks and intrusions.
