18.09.2017 / MONDAY / OPENING
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.
18.09.2017 / THE VAST SEA OF OPPORTUNITY: 08:00 PM / „White SQUARE on a black background” / Paulina Święcańska / presentation of the organizer: Fundacja Artystyczna PERFORM
Idea and choreography: Paulina Święcańska
Performers: Aleksandra Osowicz, Paulina Święcańska, Paweł Konior
Live music: Jakub Dykiert
Light direction: Roman Woźniak
Premiere: kwiecień 2017
Duration: ok. 40 min.
An improvised spectacle that draws, in a perverse way, on a painting by Kazimir Malevich entitled “The Black Square on a White Background” 1915, which is considered the first non-objective creation: “zero point in painting”. The spectacle’s concept idea is based on pure visual form, movement from the borderland of physical theatre, improvisation contact, authentic movement and improvisation as well as intuition scores concerning the topics of emptiness and filling up of space. Live music is an additional partner of the movement, it completes and often stresses the topic of the improvisation and its variations. The intensity of tensions that come into being between the elements of this stage work of art create a very special world in which the abstract characters are set, not possessing any context in terms of time or matter.
