16/10/2017 BEKSIŃSKI_BUTOH. WITHOUT TITLE./ Teatr Limen BUTOH

Saturday September 30th, 2017 / News, Program 2017

16.10 /07:00 pm

In October the programme of  Dance Art Centre in Warsaw will feature mainly  groups, collective ensembles and dance theatres.

The programme of the CST Dance  Art Centre offers a comprehensive survey of the contemporary dance in  its broadest spectrum: it includes dance improvisation,  shows based on structure, art installation work, interdisciplinary shows, performance art shows. After every performance a conversation will take place between the artists and the audience. In 2017 the performances will take place every Monday from September till December. In the coming years, the programme will be developed to embrace other spheres  such as education, animation, theory and critique of dance.

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.

“From a picture I demand the same thing as from music: it should make me feel ecstatic but not by means of what has been painted, or how it has been painted, but by means of something intangible that I am trying to find in my heart and in my eyes, which I cannot name.” Z. Beksiński

Zdzisław Beksiński’s painting is most often seen as full of dark visions all steeped in a grim atmosphere. Other aspects of this painter’s art remain unnoticed. We intend to depart from the stereotype interpretation of Beksiński’s art and discover anew the “mystical” aspect of his painting which is a spiritual pilgrimage, especially visible in the second half of his creative work.

Beksiński followed an entirely individual creative way, similarly like the butoh artists, even in opposition to all avant-garde trends and directions in contemporary art. Extremely interesting to us, the butoh dancers, are all body transgressions and transformations  in his art, and that special relation between  body and space. Yet another theme of an artistic quest – stressed by the artist himself and by art critics – is connected with the relation between Beksiński’s painting and music: the points of convergence in the structure of a piece of music and the architecture of a painting. “That which is painted is of no great importance to me. The important thing is how it functions in the sense of the sound of the form and the sound of colour, placed in just this, and not any other place. Thus, I would say, I use shape for musical reasons.” This prompted the idea to use the contemporary music language and a video-score form created by Robert Jędrzejewski.

After the performance we invite you to a meeting with artists

The meeting will lead: Hanna Raszewska-Kursa
