"Wszędodomni / Panhabitants"

Wszedodomni

Creators: Julia Jakubowska, Dorota Porowska, Paweł Korbus, Magda Laskowska, Piotr Kowalczyk, Marcin Polak, Kuba Krzewiński
Premiere: 23.10.2013, Fabryka Sztuki w Łodzi

The performance "WSZĘDODOMNI / PANHABITANTS" is a result of a project created in 2013, by CHOREA artists and independent artists from Lodz with the residents of a center for homeless people in Lodz.
Artists and animators from CHOREA tried to get inside this difficult social area, and to identify life circumstances of this special community, they also tried to activate and motivate participants of the project. Meetings, discussions and regular theater workshops helped many people to externalize their own judgments, emotions and artistic skills in various art fields.
In terms of this project we organized a musical concert, work-in-progress shows of our joint work, we made a film about our actions and created a democratic performance, a unique theatrical experiment.

Po Ptakach / After the Birds is the second part of the triptych created by CHOREA and Earthfall. It is a result of another international theatrical project which originated in Cardiff (Wales) in December 2005. Using two absolutely different aesthetics and working methods, the two groups jointly created a brand new language on the border of genres and styles. CHOREA and Earthfall confront ancient Greek choral songs with modern music, urban space choreography and fears of the modern world.

We have attempted to answer the question: what is left after Aristophanes’ The Birds, ancient Greeks and their culture, and what do we have in common with them? We must remember that Athens in Aristophanes’ times went through devastating wars with Sparta, collapsing democracy, political crises, plots and power struggles among different political factions. Social and religious values started to crumble. In such circumstances, there always appear some guides to a brave new world which may be created on the ruins of the old one thanks to utopian ideas, populist slogans, manipulations and operating exactly between the ones who succeeded and the ones who lost. Both these groups cannot exist without one another, so, in the areas where their paths cross, the power belonging to the first group and the dreams belonging to the second one must be taken away. Everything must be surrounded by a wall, guards must be employed and strangers must be driven away, as it happened in Cloud Cuckoo Land – the Aristophanes’ ideal new state. But from behind the tall walls, gods look like corrupted idiots, and people look like dwarfs deprived of dreams. Can a paradise on Earth be built only behind barbed-wire fences; do all world healing visions become equally bitter and dangerous when we start putting them into practice? During the play performed in a post-communist state, in the global terrorism era, we pose these questions not only to Aristophanes...
