11.12.2017 / OFFICIAL CLOSURE OF THE YEAR 2017 / PAX / WOJCIECH GRUDZIŃSKI – PREMIERE

Thursday November 30th, 2017 / News, Program 2017

The 2017  Programme is divided into two cycles: MORZE MOŻLIWOŚCI (THE VAST SEA OF OPPORTUNITY) and OKO CYKLONU (THE EYE OF THE CYCLONE)

THE VAST SEA OF OPPORTUNITY

The shows and events presented in this particular cycle will feature various techniques and varying approach to contemporary dance. The performances in this cycle will aim to present different treatment of the modern dance techniques, premieres, young artists’ first appearances in the sphere of contemporary dance art and performance art; also included are presentations by acclaimed, well-known artists who cooperate with the younger generation, and, last but not least, performances and installation art events for children.

THE EYE OF THE CYCLONE

A Centre of stormy events. A Centre of important matters. A Centre  that can sometimes be dangerous, shocking, astounding. The performances presented in this cycle undertake vital problems in very many differing ways. The artists use improvisation, construct tension/expression by means of micro-movements, make use of performative tools, combine various dance styles and various spheres of the arts: dance/theatre/film/visual arts – they employ video materials, put up installations or act in an empty space. One special trait connects the whole of the work by our artists: it is like the eye of the cyclone – it takes up crucial  dilemmas, rough ones, sometimes ominous, intense and ultimate but very well-known to us all.

THE EYE OF THE CYCLONE:  PAX / Wojciech Grudziński – première

In 1990 in the district of Ursynów in Warsaw there appears the first shop of a Swedish firm producing furniture and decorative articles. A year later Wojtek is born. In his reminiscences, there is not a trace of the Scandinavian dream in the Bacewiczówny  Street shop. To buy ice cream and hot dogs for I zloty, one has to travel to Janki, a small location outside Warsaw. A shopping centre is not just a place filled with objects which are the embodiment of dreams about affluence and high standards. It is  a playground, an enormous board game.

PAX is a system whose elements you can combine according to your own wish. PAX dances for the product. PAX works with serialization and multiplication. PAX means choreography of the interior. Nobody else can put it together for you.

Special thanks are due to Maciej Bychowski, Nanna Na, Katarzyna Szugajew, Bartosz Zalewski for their creative contribution to the project, and to Marta Seredyńska for her assistance in production.

The project was carried out as part of the scholarship grant from the Minister of Culture and National Heritage.
