25/09/2017 EUROPE. INQUIRY / MAGDA JĘDRA / WERONIKA PELCZYŃSKA / IZA SZOSTAK

Sunday September 10th, 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.

Poland: 24 thousand second-hand shops. Europe: 120 thousand clothing companies. World: 4 million hands sewing clothes in Bangladesh.

Three artists invite the audience to visit a gigantic European thrift shop full of second-hand fantasies and worn out dreams about the future. The artists use this collage of improvisation and network of visible and invisible connections to analyze the relations between the far, the global and the personal. They performatively investigate the future of Europe. How expensive are joint actions? How can a partner turn into an obstacle? When do the values turn into obsessions?

This performance tells the story about unexpected consequences of joint work, of collective actions, of how the haven turns into a form of oppression, and how the scary turns into the funny.

The project is supported by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage and the Office of the Capital City Warsaw, with the support of the Foundation Burdąg Centre in Movement, Capital City District Office Wawer Warsaw.

After the performance we invite you to a meeting with artists

The meeting will lead: Hanna Raszewska-Kursa
