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 SEA OF OPPORTUNITY: “Starting with Activity” / Maria Stokłosa
Choreography, realization: Maria Stokłosa
Cooperation: Alicja Bielawska, Maija Reeta Raumanni, Katarzyna Słoboda, Eleonora Zdebiak i inni.
Production: Katarzyna Sztarbała
Maria Stokłosa does not attempt o create a closed form performance. The point of departure here is in the development of movement improvisation practice which changes its shape according to the place, time and the audience, and the energy the audience provides. The project started in 2015 when a Philadelphian artist, Meg Foley, invited Maria Stokłosa to cooperate in the development of practice in Action is primary. At present, both choreographers continue work on their solo projects and exchange results of research during regular online meetings. In the shaping of the new presentations Maria Stokłosa is assisted by the artists she invites to take part: a sculptress Alicja Bielawska, a playwright Eleonora Zdebiak, a light director Karolina Gębska and some ‘witnesses’ – regularly changing artists and theoreticians, such as an analyst of dance Katarzyna Słoboda, choreographers Maija Reeta Raumanni and Anna Nowicka. In the time from May till December 2017, about forty performances are to be designed. Starting with Activity is a spectacle which will never have a premiere and there will never any end product come into existence. Its energy, stemming from a constant negotiation of one’s own identity, comes across as ability to create transformation in which a continuous change of attention is the only permanent element.
After the performance we invite you to a meeting with artists
The meeting will lead: Julia Hoczyk
