4.12.2017 SOLAR RESEARCH 2.0 / DAWID ŻAKOWSKI

Sunday November 19th, 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 : 4 Dec. 2017/ 18.30

Trailer:

Recruitment to a one-way space mission taking people to Mars is underway. On board of a flight simulator there meet the candidates competing to participate in the programme. Tested are their psychological and emotional stability and physical endurance. The performance is of an interactive character. The audience can influence the choice of the candidates and the course of the spectacle.

“Solar Research 2.0” is an example of a new kind of dramaturgy based on movement and visual creation. The form is a combination of performance art, dance, physical  theatre and post dramatic theatre. This spectacle has come into existence in an experimental process of actors’ training, endurance tests juxtaposed with the actual dramaturgical situation. In the light of the present-day research,  a space mission to Mars is seen as a one-way and long term mission. As yet, we do not have access to technology that would allow bringing the astronauts  back Earth. Because of very high cost, space agencies, for instance, NASA or other private consortia such as Mars One or SpaceX, look for all sorts of various ways of financing: reality shows, private donations, collecting money from people who apply to take part.

The production of the spectacle is co-financed by the capital city of Warsaw and the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage as part of the of “Young Solarists” project.
