The ARKA Theatre in Wrocław regularly organizes theatre workshops for people with intellectual disabilities or mental illness for the purpose of social and professional rehabilitation. Their public-funded project “Forum Możliwości (Forum of Possibility)” aims to extend their service to other cities in Lower Silesia, and in 2009, they organized the 2nd edition of the project.

From July through November 2009, we followed their workshops held in various cities of Lower Silesia and documented the project in video. During the documentation, we interviewed several people working daily with those with disabilities or illness and asked them about the benefit of theatre workshop as a method of rehabilitation.

On 26.09.2009, at the Wrocław Puppet Theatre (Teatr Lalek / pl. Teatralny 4), as a part of the European Day of Languages events, Alexandre Marquézy and Patrycja Łacina-Miarka performed a paper theatre play “Les frères corses (The Corsican Brothers)” in French. The project of the paper theatre at the Wrocław Puppet Theatre aims to reproduce the paper theatre of the 19th century when this form of theatre was very popular. During the preparation of this performance in French, however, the actors decided to update the format. In our interview, Alexandre Marquézy tells us what change they made and why.

“Jan Karski: One of the Great Men of Polish Resistance”
The text written by Marc P. Smith (US)
Performed in English by the theater group “Turning the Page”

From the press release:
The renowned playwright Marc P. Smith, Boston, USA, continues to follow his life’s goal to remember examples of heroic resistance against the Nazis in Poland and Germany.

After long research and many personal encounters with surviving family members he wrote in 2007 his play A Journey to Kreisau about Helmuth James and Freya von Moltke, who
‘identified and strengthened the moral standards within their group… and it was his vision, that endured.’

Now Smith remembers the life of Jan Karski, who worked in life threatening situations for Sikorski’s Exile government to try to stop the Holocaust in Poland – but nobody in London or Washington, where he met Roosevelt in 1943, believed his eyewitness of Oswiecim / Auschwitz.

The playwright Marc P. Smith will coach young Polish and German actors during the Workshop DenkFest-1 in Krzyzowa / Kreisau for this and further performances and will be present at the premiere in Wroclaw. He says:
‘Jan Karski is essential for young people today to identify with heroes of their own country so that they may learn to stand up for ethical values.’”

With the keyword “Against Cultural Exile,” each year Brave Festival brings to Wrocław traditional performing artists and musicians from all over the world.

This year’s focus is “Prayers of the World,” and the main feature is the presentation of various traditional rites of religiosity or spirituality. The program includes: a Zikr ritual by a women’s group from Georgia, a Tanzanian libation ritual, Korean mudang rituals, Corsican religious polyphonies, and also, from the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List, healing dance from Malawi, Ahellil chants of the Berbers of Algeria, and the Azer songs of Mugham.

Read more at http://www.bravefestival.pl (PL/EN)

The festival was started with the belief that, in the contemporary society, it is very difficult to keep traditional cultural forms without making compromises and that it takes unusual courage and perseverance to do so. The name of the festival (”Brave”) is literally a homage to those people who are brave enough to stand against the currents of modernization and have a courage to be a bridge to our own cultural heritage.

On Tuesday 17.02.2009, Galeria ENTROPIA hosted a sound performance entitled “Revenant Sound,” led by John Grzinich & Patrick McGinley. “Revenant Sound” is an open project around site-specific acoustics and sounds. The project is “open” first of all to the different sites and their physical as well as acoustic uniqueness. It is also “open” to the people present on a given site: it breaks down the barrier between “performer” and “spectator” and invites the public to take active part in the formation of a sound landscape. In our interview, Patrick McGinley elaborates more on the project and the sound.

This performance was presented as a part of the “Athletic_Cinema” series.

(For ticket reservation, please call: (+48) 71 342 71 10)

The award-winning theatre company Teatr Pieśń Kozła premieres its new production “Macbeth” this weekend. Here’s the performance schedule this month:

13.11.2008 - Open Dress Rehearsal
14 & 15.11.2008 - Premiere

From the press release:
‘Macbeth’ is born out of the ongoing experimentation and research of Teatr Piesn Kozla and is the fruit of our collaboration with the Royal Shakespeare Company. This performance explores the musicality of Shakespeare’s poetry – the company have been searching for the colours and sounds of Shakespearian language, while at the same time investigating the roots of this drama.

Whereas ‘Lacrimosa’ was the final stage of the company’s work on myth, ‘Macbeth’ continues the ensemble’s deep interest in tragedy (the company’s name comes from the Greek tragon ode meaning song of the goat) and opens up new spaces for artistic exploration. The first work-in-progress of ‘Macbeth’ was shown in February 2007 at the Swan Theatre (Royal Shakespeare Company) in Stratford-upon-Avon during the Complete Works festival.

Although we call these showings the premiere, our performances are, in fact, always work-in-progress. The audience will witness a stage in the constant development of this performance and in our search for new meanings within the drama.

The cast of this performance is international: with actors from England, Finland, Scotland, Wales and Poland.

DIRECTOR: Grzegorz Bral
COSTUME DESIGN: Cristina Gonzalez
STAGE DESIGN: Mira Zelechower-Aleksiun, Grzegorz Bral
LIGHTING: Robert Balinski

26.09.2008, MLECZARNIA (ul. Włodkowica 5) - The local multi-instrumental group Małe Instrumenty played a late-night concert as a part of Avant Music Festival (19.09.2008 - 27.10.2008). “Małe Instrumenty” means “Small instruments,” and as its name indicates, the stage is filled with many small instruments; Some of them look like toys for children and some others really are just toys for children. In the interview, we asked Paweł Romańczuk, a key member of the band, how they musically integrate the use of those toys that never seem to make the sounds we want, and how much of their performance involves improvisation.

Tickets: 14/12/9PLN

This Friday, at Jazz Club Rura, Jonquil will perform one and the only concert in Poland.
audio samples: http://www.myspace.com/jonquiluk

Jonquil is an Oxford bedroom recording project turned band, centered around 20 year old Hugo Manuel.

In borrowing Kit Monteith, Ben Rimmer and Jody Prewett from young Oxford band Wait For Coniston along with Sam Scott from Youthmovies, the line up was expanded to include bouzouki, guitar, violin, drums, flugelhorn and double bass.

The band started with a desire to use acoustic instruments. Influenced by the likes of Joan Baez, The Microphones, Akron/Family, Swans and Stars of the Lid, Hugo spent a year collecting melodicas, reed organs, glockenspiels, dulcimers, whistles…

The result was ‘Sunny Casinos’: a late night listening album of beautiful & engrossing dark gentle songs, dense summer drones, fairground field recordings and creeped-out dusty attic music. Ten songs that are at once fizzing & clattering & wheezy… and slowly blossoming, twinkling & gossamer-like. Think Animal Collective at their most sun-dappled, Hood at their most intimate and some stumbled-upon eerie eastern European folk.

OPT (Ośrodek Postaw Twórczych) organizes with CRK (Centrum Reanimacji Kultury) an open-air picnic. The main feature of the evening is the projection of the silent movie “Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde” (1920), accompanied by the live performance of Devil Music Ensemble (US) with their original score.

The Devil Music Ensemble, formed in Boston in 1999, is comprised of Brendon Wood on guitars, lap steel, and synthesizer; Jonah Rapino on electric viola, vibraphone, and synthesizer; and Tim Nylander on drums, percussion and synthesizer.
“The Devil Music Ensemble has established itself as one of the primary American groups composing and performing scores for silent films, and can be spoken of in the same breath as groups like the Alloy Orchestra and the Tin Hat Trio.”
Dylan Skolnick - Director of Programming - Cinema Arts Centre

The DME has been on 6 U.S. tours and one European tour playing soundtracks for silent film; performing in museums, theaters, performing arts centers, and college campuses. In late May/early June the DME will be performing at a number of venues in Europe including: Focus Film Theater in Arnhem Netherlands, Filmhuis Lumen in Delft Netherlands, OPT art space in Wroclaw Poland, Panorama Museum in Bad Frankenhausen Germany, UT Connewitz in Leipzig Germany, Pupille Kino an der Uni in Frankfurt Germany, as well as venues in France and Switzerland.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1920)
Adolph Zukor presents JOHN BARRYMORE in “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” By Robert Louis Stevenson.
Directed by John S. Robertson.
Scenario by Clara S. Beranger.
Photographed by Roy Overbaugh.
Cast: John Barrymore, Brandon Hurst, Martha Mansfield, Charles Lane, Cecil Clovelly, Nita Naldi, J. Malcolm Dunn, George Stevens, Louis Wolheim, & Alma Aiken.
“Dr. Jekyll (John Barrymore) is a London doctor, progressive in his medical research, conservative and repressed in his personal life. A friend encourages him to explore the underside of life with a visit to a London music hall. Dancer Nita Naldi arouses Jekyll’s repressed sensibilities, and when she embraces him, the doctor runs off. Later, Jekyll speculates on the advantage of separating the two natures of man in different bodies- one could “yield to every evil impulse, yet leave the soul untouched.” Jekyll’s scientific passion leads him to a formula that brings out his other side, Mr. Hyde, a man without a conscience.
The initial transformation scene is deservedly famous, achieving its power solely with Barrymore’s expressive features. Visually, Barrymore’s Hyde is not a monster, but the physical result of the effect of a dissolute life. Hyde becomes more decrepit as the film progresses, while Jekyll’s goodness falters. Hyde pursues women, stealing their honor, while his alter ego Jekyll is uncomfortable even with his fiancee. This distinct duality is further developed when Hyde’s depravities get worse and worse, and the two sensibilities begin to become less distinct.
The scenario goes to the essence of the story: the thin line between good and evil in the same person, and the inevitable conflict between the two. On an unconscious level, the film is also about different classes in the same city. The behavior of the working class Hyde is considered strange, but acceptable, until he attacks someone from the upper class (the father of Jekyll’s fiancee). Just as Hyde allowed Jekyll to indulge in forbidden pastimes, the movies allowed Barrymore to indulge his upscale and downscale sensibilities. As a measure of the star’s versatility, while this film was in production during the day at Paramount’s New York studio, John Barrymore was starring as Richard III on Broadway each evening.” —1997 David Pierce

A student theatre group, under the direction of John White, presents the performance of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream in English. John White works as English teacher, but he is also a theatre actor/director. At the beginning of the academic year, he organizes a group with students who are interested in working with Shakespeare’s original texts, or simply in acting, and prepares a performance for the end of the year. The previous performance took place in 2006 and the group presented the comedy “The Merry Wives of Windsor” (see our video coverage: Shakespeare Wrocław).

John White - English teacher and the director of this performance
Jacek Adamiak - student of Wyższa Szkoła Bankowa we Wrocławiu
Paul Boisvert - English teacher from Canada
Virgil Haden-Pawłowski - English teacher from Canada
Tuba Aydinoglu - from Turkey, studies at the English Philology, University of Wrocław
Judyta Wnonko - student of the English Philology, University of Wrocław
Marta Wojczuk - studies in a secondary school

About the Play:
William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream (”The Lovers”) tells the story of four lovers who elope into the forest to escape a forced marriage brought on by Athenian law. There they are met by trickster fairies who live in the woods and who, using a magic love flower, lead the lovers astray in a long night of jealousy and misunderstandings. When they awake in the morning they have come to a new appreciation of each other’s love.

On 18.05.2008 at Café Mleczarnia (ul. Włodkowica 5), the exhibition by Anka Mierzejewska - “Ciacho w Mleczarni” – opened the 2-week long festival “Czyli Wrocław,” the first cultural initiative by Mleczarnia Foundation. The exhibition title “Ciacho w Mleczarni” is here given a double meaning: one is literally “cake (ciastko) in Mleczarnia” - making a reference to Mleczarnia as café - and the second meaning is from the Polish slang “Ciacho” - “someone hot, attractive.” In the video interview, Asia Męczyńska, the organizer of the event, and the artist Anka Mierzejewska talk about the idea of the exhibition, the place and the paintings.
Festival “Czyli Wrocław” continues this coming week from 27.05 through 29.05.2008. For more information, check this link.

In the interview after the performance, Feder shared with us some of the personal motivations behind the creation of this piece.
Before the camera, she talks about her family history, homesickness, reflection on plural identities and also the significance of “Wrocław” in all of this.

This wordless performance recounts a story of a hard, sometime absurd, but possible love. The story, whose initial scene opens to the Poland in the early 1930’s, covers the period of a little less than 60 years. It is a story that comes back from the memory, almost like a dream, and some of the events are almost a dream themselves.

Japanese experimental band “Boris” returns to Wrocław at the occasion of the release of their new album “Smile.” For more info: www.inoxia-rec.com/boris. The concert features also a US duo Growing.
Read on for the interview with Atsuo, the drummer and the vocalist of Boris // The questions are by Bartek Gil and the interview is published here by the courtesy of PopUp [www.popupmusic.pl - the Polish version]

Bartek Gil: Where do you think acid/psychodelic music re-gains its strength from?
Atsuo: いろいろな過去音源の発掘作業も充実してるからね。みんな未来に絶望してる風潮もあると思う。だから過去に夢を見ようとしている。過去の方が捏造(批評)することに、あまり責任を問われないし、危険の伴わない謎解きをしているように感じる。未来を作って行く方が危険で、やっぱり意義のあることだと思うんだが。
[Well, a lot of audio materials from the past have been restored and are readily accessible today. And also there is this hopelessness that everyone seems to feel about the future. That’s why everyone tries to find dream in the past. There is much less responsibility in fabricating (criticizing) the past, and it feels like solving puzzles without taking any risk. It is more risky to move towards future, but I think it would be more meaningful...]

Q. it used to be popular ages ago and apparently it seems now it’s attractive to people who seek for more contemporary commentary and interpretation of reality. Would you say it’s blossoming now or it’s just that it’s being hyped at the moment?
[I think the psychedelic movement spread all over the world like a fever only because of that wild, untamed period that the end of the 60’s was. It was more like a cultural phenomenon and not simply about music. But today many different values and tastes coexist, and things happen in the computer screen “without actually experiencing them.” It may be that people feel a certain longing for that period.]

Q. (by the way - do you yourself have an interest in contemporary music? who would you call a cutting-egde artist?)
だからSunn o)))とかはやはり経験そのものだし、すごく刺激になるし、影響も受けてるね。
[We have now no intention of making “music” in that sense. We have no interest in music at all. Boris has been doing things that could help setting off the “experience” without leaving the music as a genre. But we are not doing that self-consciously or conceptually. It just happened this way when we pursued what interested us.
So, in that sense, we get inspiration from the bands like Sunn o))), for example, which is a pure experience, and we also get some influences from them.]

Q. How spontaneous you are when it comes to recording? It seems that not necessarily every sound appearing on an album is deeply thought-out and you prefer recording live to overdub. If it’s right, does it come more from pre-recording assumptions or your general attitute about creative process?
[The recording of “Smile” had both. We create a tune from recorded materials on the basis of spontaneity – or, improvisation – and make it less natural and spontaneous as we go along. While we combine riffs like a puzzle, we also break it down. In the end, it is boring if we must choose between “chaos and the order.” To make “chaos and the order” coexist in one work – that’s the thing that we can “experience” as exciting sound.]

Q. Your discography is impressive. One can have an impression that incessant stream of consciousness and need of communication is crucial for the band. Where would you place it on your ladder of values (especially when you were to confront it with formal limitations)?
それで、「incessant stream of consciousness」ってのは実は誰でも本当は持ってるものだと思うんだよね。世間一般的に「日常は退屈なもの」とかそういうことになってるだけで。目の前の現実に目を向けたらそこにはスリリングな日常が本当はあって、そうしたら意識はドライブせざるを得ないと思うんだけど。僕らは普通のことを普通にやってるとおもうよ。
[There is no formal limitation. We don’t have a deadline from a label. Because we record by ourselves, I think the cost is much lower than other bands, and that’s why there is no limit to the recording time, either.
We think that “incessant stream of consciousness” is something that everyone has. It’s just that people already decided that “everyday life is boring,” but I think if you take a close look at the reality in front of us, you’ll see an exciting life and your mind will just get going. I just feel that we are not doing anything more than that ordinary thing.
By the way, I think the essence of communication is “not to understand.” Understanding one another is not a communication. I think it is important to continue even in suspension, without understanding and with some unresolved feeling. In our band, the communication with words is not that important, and in the creative process, it is more important to pay attention to the sound and feel what impression that sound is going to leave in the world.]

Q. As this is an interview for an on-line magazine and your albums are often limited to a few thousands copies what do you think would/can make people realize that it’s not the more CDs you rip off the more cool you are?
お?これは僕らの音源が「rip off」と言われてるってこと?(笑)リリースの枚数が限定になるのは、僕らのアイデアがコストがかかりすぎるし、一般的な製造ラインには無いことが多い。だから限定になってしまうんだけど。でも見たいものは見たい。作り手の強靭な欲求がなければ、それを買ってくれる人にも「新しい経験」は訪れないと思ってる。そういう意味でも、ぼくらは自分達の経験という快楽を追求するよ。
[Are you referring to the fact that people are calling our audio sources a “rip off”? (laugh) The number of our albums is limited, because our ideas cost too much and often not commonly available. That’s why the release gets limited, but still we want to do what we want to do. If we don’t have a strong enough will to pursue what we want to do, I think the people who buy our albums won’t get any “new experience.” In that sense, we will continue to explore the pleasure called our own experience.
We just hope that this will be a “good experience” for people who buy. All we can do is to work sincerely, and one step at a time. We did it like that until now, and that won’t change.]

Q. You play with growing and shellac on this tour. what are these bands to you?
[With Growing, we also toured together in U.S.A. and personally there are a lot of things that I feel close to. I’ve never told them, but the fact that we share the “same space” matters to me, much more than understanding one another with words. They are nice guys and, of course, I like their sound as well.]

Q. do you feel any kin towards (ex)kranky bands and is steve albini’s attitute appealing to you anyhow?
[Rapeman was a band I liked a lot, although it had a terrible name. And I also know that they took this terrible name from a Japanese manga. I feel that the way he records is exactly opposite to ours.]

Q. Your famed jumps over your drum kit, stage diving and crowdsufring are more an effect of dealing with real emotions or rather a result of awareness that people expect a bit of spectacular show from such a conceptual band.
[Would you like me to say: “No, no, of course all the emotion is a fake and it’s all just a performance”? (laugh). Or, do you prefer: “During the live concert, I get all excited and things just happen that way”?
For me, both of them are true, and both of them are just a lie. But I always want to enjoy the show with the public and that feeling is true.
I’m looking forward to seeing you again at a concert.]

Under the direction of Mariusz Smolij, Wrocław Chamber Orchestra “Leopoldinum”will play the compositions by Andrzej Panufnik, Aaron Copland, Anton Arensky and Joseph Haydn.

“Compositions of Arensky, who tutored such famous composers like Rimsky-Korsakov, Rakhmaninov and Scriabin among others, are not very well known, and his Variations on a theme of P. Tchaikovsky will be performed for the first time by the Leopoldinum orchestra. Igor Cecocho, trumpet soloist of the concert, will perform Andrzej Panufnik’s Concerto in modo antico. This piece was successfully recorded by both artists – Mariusz Smolij and Igor Cecocho for the firm Naxos (with the Polish Chamber Orchestra) in 2006.
Quiet City was originally composed by Aaron Copland as theater music for the Irvin Shaw’s play. But in this form was performed for two weeks only, later on (since 1941) only in the concert version. Two soloists will perform Quiet City: Igor Cecocho, trumpet and Waldemar Korpak, cor anglais.
Haydn’s symphony La Passione will conclude the program.” (From the press release)

Arka Theatre presented a theatrical adaptation of 2 of the most famous tales by Charles Perrault: “Le Petit Chaperon rouge (Little Red Riding Hood)” and “Les Fées (Diamonds and Toads).” The play was made primarily for children, but, just like the original stories by Perrault, it was just as enjoyable for the grown-ups. In our interview, the actor Alexandre Marquézy briefly explains the idea behind this adaptation.

The first video podcast from this year’s Journées de la Francophonie (07.03-16.03.2008) presents the concert by Davy Sicard (08.03.2008 at Jazz Club Rura).
The singer Davy Sicard was born in the Réunion Island and is currently living in France. He sang in the mixture of Réunionnaise Creole and French, and, although the lyrics reflected his personal voice, just like the language in which they were sung, the history and the culture of the Réunion Island were also visibly present in many different ways (for example, the selection of themes and topics, words, or stories). “Journées de la Francophonie” is a celebration of the diversity of people who speak French and their culture, and the concert of Davy Sicard could not have been more appropriate as an opening act for the festival.

For more info: http://akosh.s.free.fr/

Akosh Szelevenyi was born in 1966 in Debrecen in Hungary. While studying the classical music in Budapest, he discovers jazz, Jimmie Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and Frank Zappa. In 1985, some troubles with the administration and the police force him to leave Hungary. In 1986 he crosses the Iron Curtain and arrives in Paris.
At the margin of the traditional French jazz environment, Akosh plays in the bars, where he meets several musicians. One of them is the band “Noir Desir,” and their invitation to take part in their tour subsequently launches his career in the main music circuit. In 2006, he composes the music for the contemporary dance performance by Josef Nadj, and their collaboration piece was presented at the theatrical festival of Avignon.
Akosh’s musical inspiration comes from Archie Shepp, Albert Ayler, Jonh Coltrane, Pharoah Sanders, Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry, Sun Ra, Charcie Haden and many other musicians and jazz lovers.

PrzeglądARKA: A Review of Talents, Ideas and Possibilities
Part 1. “Trans-misja” - A Play in Gesture

“A simple story on a less simple subject: about people who are in search of a relationship but at the same time cannot rid of a fear of getting trapped by it”
“Trans-misja” is the result of a co-operation of Artur Borkowski, Ewelina Niewiadowska and Paulina Jóźwin, who are also the excellent casts of the play. The performance was premiered in April 2007 during the Third International Art Festival “Mandala” in Wrocław.

The first episode of our Mandala Festival III (19.04-25.04.2007) video series presents a view from the exhibition of ceramic works by a French ceramicist Alain Gaudebert. In the interview, he tells us about his works (in French - the English translation of the interview is available below).

The translation of the interview:
I am a ceramist from Bourgogne, France.
These faces were mostly developed at the time when there was a production, in the city of Auxerre, of Eugène Ionesco’s play “Jeux de massacre.” At that time, the director who was my friend asked me if I could do some work around this theme.
Other works presented here are about what we call “ceramic paper.” This technique mixes paper pulp with clay. With this, we can create extremely thin sheets of ceramic, like parchment. Sometimes they are barely 1mm thick. This technique allowed me to materialize my graphic work. The graphic work is transposed on ceramic material.
Obviously these works are burned at high temperature: in the wood stove, at 1300℃.

Last year Teatr Arka adapted E. Ionesco’s “La Leçon” and presented it with the dialog mixing Polish and French languages. This year, they adapted Molière’s “Le Tartuffe” (”Świętoszek” in Polish) in the same manner. In the interview, the actor Alexandre Marquézy talks about the translation of Molière and the advantage of performing it today in the mixture of Polish and the original French.
“Le Tartuffe (Świętoszek)” premiered on 25.03.2007 during the Journées de la Francophonie 2007 and will continue to be performed through May, June and September.

Here is the video snapshots from the last concert of the alt. rock group George Dorn Screams (21.02.2007, Bezsenność). As Wojtek Trempala from the band explains in the interview, the sound of George Dorn Screams is a combination of the alt. rock instrumental tunes and the haunting female vocal. The resulting sound is non-organic - even the catchy vocal tracks constantly remind the listener of their indie root.
George Dorn Screams returns to the stage of Bezsenność (ul. Ruska 51) on Wednesday, 09.05.2007. The concert starts at 20:00.

From Francophonie 2007 - Yeti http://www.wroclawweekly.pl/index.php/from-francophonie-2007-yeti/ http://www.wroclawweekly.pl/index.php/from-francophonie-2007-yeti/#comments Sat, 24 Mar 2007 16:54:47 +0000 toyo http://www.wroclawweekly.pl/?p=321 yeti01 yeti02 yeti03 yeti04
The second episode of our video podcast from Journées de la Francophonie 2007 features Yeti (23.03.2007 @ Jazz club RURA). Their songs are all in French, and their concert itself is presented like a show in French. When everything is in French, it is not really clear how the non-French-speaking public would respond to such a concert, and for Yeti, this tour to Poland at the occasion of Francophonie marks their first tour outside of French-speaking countries. In our interview, the band’s vocalist & accordeonist Jetty Swart presents the band and talks about their experience of the tour in Poland.

A lecture by Dr. Camelia Michaela Cmeciu (University of Bacău, Romania)
“On a bleak rainy day in November 2002, when George W. Bush visited Romania, a rainbow appeared in the sky, thus metaphorically ’sealing’ Romania’s membership into the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, which took place later in May 2004. Two years have passed since then and the Romanian society has been facing two major problems: on the one hand, a pledge of honor to America, despite the unfavorable polls concerning our presence in Iraq, on the other hand, the admission to the EU, despite the pervasive problem of corruption. These two issues can be linked to some ‘fundamental values’ (Alina Mungiu-Pippidi) about our perception of the Self and the Other, which are to be found in the sociological interpretations of two Romanian traditional ballads Mioriţa and Mason Manole…”

25.10.2006 (Wednesday) – 18:00
(Dolnośląska Public Library, Rynek 58)
Free admission
A lecture on American literature by Christian Dumais. In English.

“What happens when a character prefers not to? When the writer is suddenly a character in his own story? When the readers are supposed to get lost in the story they’re reading? From Herman Melville’s Bartleby the Scrivener to Kurt Vonnegut’s Breakfast of Champions to Mark Danielewski’s House of Leaves, this lecture will examine the differences in post Modernism and post-post Modernism, and how the two movements have altered not only literature but the process of storytelling. Fact blending with fiction, the destruction of chronology, the disruption of the basic shape of a story, the emergence of metafiction… there’s never been a more interesting time to read books.”
(”While it sounds stuffy and boring, it should be a lot of fun. Beer, however, will not be provided.” - Dumais)

(Dolnośląska Public Library, Rynek 58)
The exhibit was the brainchild of Polish cartoonist Janusz Kapusta, a member of INX, and presents highly opinionated editorial page drawings by more than 50 illustrators on various topics: from today’s war on terrorism and gas prices to global warming. Displayed chronologically, the show serves as an illustrated history lesson full of biting humor, surprising insight, startling images and extraordinary craft.

INX (a play on “inks”) group was founded in the U.S. in 1980 by 12 political cartoonists trying to produce and sell uncensored political images. In 2002 the group decided to link with the United Features Syndicate. Newspapers and other publications download cartoons they wish to use. Their clients include the Boston Globe, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Seattle Times, and the Washington Post.

15.09.2006 (Friday) - 18:00
(ul. Rzeźnicza 4)

Accompanied by the performances:
 - Redglaer & Wanda Gala (USA) [performance "Goneness" /noise and movement]
 - Sitka (PL) [krew z kontaktu (KZK) + 3 (silence, noise, improvisation)]
Crossing is a collective project of five young artists who met at the Bauhaus University in Weimar: Dušica Dražić (SRB), Karolina Freino (PL), Sam Hopkins (UK/KEN), Teresa Luzio (P) and Vanessa Mayoraz (CH).

The works are the reflections of their personal experiences of leaving safe and familiar places and meeting its consequences in new, unfamiliar places. On the personal level, the “crossing” represents a challenge to one’s own limits, accompanied by fears and/or led by dreams. On the social level, it is the movement in the lack of stabilities in our society and is manifest in many different forms. For example, the search of an identity, asylum seeking, or the quest for physical and/or mental home, etc., are all either the result of or the very process of the “crossing” of given social boundaries and limits.
While focusing on the common theme of “Crossing,” each artist addresses the issue differently: crossing as a feature of a mobile society (Hopkins), as a phenomenon of displacement (Luzio), as a point of intersection between an outsider and a private network (Mayoraz), as a transgression in communication (Freino), or as a mixed feeling that having a home evokes (Dražić).
Galeria ENTROPIA is open Mon-Fri, 13:00-19:00.
The exhibition open till 27.09.2006.

Because we got a free press accreditation (worth 100EURO!) through the French Embassy office in Wrocław, we decided to be a tourist at Futuallia (01.06 & 02.06.2006). We walked around and filmed the event inside the main venue, Hala Ludowa (literally “People’s Hall,” a name that it inherited from the socialist era, but for some reason, referred at Futurallia always as “Centennial Hall,” the German name from pre-socialist era…).

On 24.05.2006, in Wrocław, we had an unique occasion to see 3 pieces from “les Fables à La Fontaine.” “Les Fables à La Fontaine” is not simply a spectacle but, before being a spectacle, it is first of all a creative project that choreographs a series of “fables” by Jean de la Fontaine, produced by La Petite Fabrique (France). In this Polish tour, the following 3 pieces were in programme: “Le Corbeau et le Renard” by Dominique Hervieu (France) / “Contre ceux qui ont le goût difficile” by Lia Rodrigues (Brasil) / “Le Chêne et le Roseau” by Mourad Merzouki (France). Our video cast presents short extracts from each of these 3 pieces.
