„2.0.4.5. Miniopera metafizyczna” jest pytaniem o ludzką podmiotowość w czasach postludzkich. Za 30 lat sztuczna inteligencja uniezależni się od człowieka, a człowiek dzięki najnowszym technologiom będzie w stanie wyeliminować choroby i uzyskać nieśmiertelność. To nie jest science fiction, to już się dzieje. Kim będzie człowiek w erze maszyn? Jak definiować swoją tożsamość? Czy szukać sensów i przesłań w największych tekstach ludzkości? Czy iść za tym, co stworzył człowiek? Za tym co już teraz zaczyna wymykać się z ludzkich rąk, a jednocześnie daje ludzkości nadzieję na nieśmiertelność? A może trzeba szukać najważniejszej wiedzy w tym co zapisane jest w naszym ciele? Takie pytania musimy stawiać już dziś, zanim będzie za późno...

International Theatre Festival Retroperspektywy 2018: Theatre between Words

24-26 of August/ 31st August-02 of September

CHOREA Theatre / ŁÓDŹ / POLAND

International Theatre Festival Retroperspektywy is the only festival in Poland that rejects the division of genres and currents and does not grade the artists as proffessionals and amateurs, presenting at the same time the most interesting theatre phenomena which define cultural identity of a modern man. In the events offered such identity is determined by the modern language of art that follows its own ways and search for the references to tradition. 

Here in every two years there meet prominent musicians, dancers and masters of word. The latter will be dominant of these year’s edition entitled „Theatre between words”. In various propositions we will meet such artists as Maja Komorowska, Irena Jun and Mariusz Bonaszewski. We will listen to the words of Adam Mickiewicz, Isaac Bashevis Singer, Nikos Kazantzakis, Czesław Miłosz, Wisława Szymborska and Zbigniew Herbert. We will listen to traditional songs and experimental music. We will see the performances, which determine the new thinking about the theatre, that efface the diffrences between the concert and mystery, pageant and ritual. It implements the word into the body, the actor into the song and movement. Theatre signs transmute into senses and the meeting of actors and specators into hope. 

Today – among all those enormous tensions and threats – each edition of the Festival consequently presents brilliant accomplishments of world’s theatre, music and dance, that brings the great load of humanism and faith in a human being – something that is essential to put out a dangerously smouldering fuse. 

Tomasz Rodowicz
Artistic Director of the International Festival Retroperspektywy

  

Word – between a concert and a mystery, pageant and ritual –

– determines the program of International Theatre Festival Retroperspektywy 2018
 


Paweł Passini, Mariusz Bonaszewski, Paweł Janyst and D’Roots Brothers, that is neTTheatre during their jubilee concert. Master Class with the masters of word: Maja Komorowska and Irena Jun. And great performances and musical events from Portugal, Israel, Belarus and Greece, a tale about a man facing the Cyberworld in the premiere spectacle directed by Tomasz Rodowicz and…secret social life of bees. On the cusp of August and September CHOREA Theatre again invites the spectators to common search during International Theatre Festival Retroperspektywy. This year’s edition will be kept under the title „Theatre between Words”. 

The Festival Retroperspektywy, that has been organized every two years, is a place of artistic confrontations of independent and mainstream theatre, the platform for meetings , workshops and discussion. 

'As the only festiwal in Poland it rejects the division into genres and currents. We do not diversify the artists as proffesionals and amateurs. We present the most interesting theatre phenomena, difining cultural identity of a modern man' – says Tomasz Rodowicz, the artistic director of the Festival. – 'The programme of this year’s edition is constructed in such a way to show the most extreme and different ways to use the WORD in a modern theatre. We will thus see performances, that determine the new thinking about theatre, blur the differences between the concert and the mistery, pageant and ritual.'

'It implements the word into the body, the actor into the song and movement.' – adds Rodowicz. From the 24th of August there will be two weekends of performances and musical events for our spectators. On Saturday and Sundays forenoons there will be workshops and masterclass, and after the performances and concerts – discussions with authors.

In programme, among others, poetic meeting with one of the most prominent polish actors – Maja Komorowska, when poetry of great polish authors like Herbert, Miłosz, Pawlikowska-Jasnorzewska, will be a kind of a tool to create live relations with spectator. 

In a renowned monodrama „Matka Makryna” based on a Jacek Dehnel’s novel, we will see Irena Jun, considered the world’s best impersonator od Beckett’s roles. This time she will present the monologue of Prioress of The Order of Saint Basil the Great in Rome, who in 40ties of the XIXth Century became an object of fascination and adoration of Polish Emigration and European Press. The mystery woman reached the summits of secular and ecclesiastical power. 

Retroperspektywy Festival is an international event. It gives the opportunity to trace phenomena in the world’s contemporary theatre, hence the presence of international guests. Among them outstanding and award-winning dance group from Portugal – Vortice Dance Company. Their dance show "Home 2.0.", where the visualizations fully interact with the dancers, talks about culture and values through the story of the psychosocial adaptation of astronauts living in an isolated environment of a spaceship, creating a peculiar house in space.

The festival audience will also see the performance of "Lear. The Bastard's Story" by the Israeli group Malenki Theater. The group uses theater puppets and marionettes on stage. At the dramatic level, the travesty about the work of William Shakespeare focuses on the ruthless and unrestrained struggle for heritage.

Then, the performance "AESCESTICA - Nikos Kazantzakis: Songs form Crete" by the Greek Omma Studio Theater, called the "opus" by the creators, will take the form of a theatrical ritual, drawing strength from the human voice, a form of studying the relationship between theater and the rite. The text itself - "AESCETICA: Salvatores Dei" is a series of spiritual exercises written by world-renowned Greek author Nikos Kazantzakis, from Heraklion in Crete.

The festival programme also includes a concert "Peace to her shadows" by vocal trio Trzy Dni Później, accompanied by an award-winning violist Paweł Odorowicz. The songs come from the third album of the group with the same title and constitute a collection of their own and collected musical impressions. Lyrics and melodies show the multiculturalism of Lower Silesia, from which the vocalists come. The artists describe it as a melting pot of historical and social events, seen through the eyes of women over several centuries.

Aurora Lubos also refers to personal experience in her performance "Welcome / Witajcie". An independent artist associated with the Gdańsk and British contemporary dance scene, has several strong solo author performances. The action that she will present in Łódź is her commentary on the immigrants dying at sea, the attempt to transfer distant images into our reality, the Polish, tangible, awakening empathy in the viewers, nonreactive, observers.

Gallery and Studio Art Brut and Igor Gawlikowski will present "Words" - an exhibition and a multimedia musical performance, whose direct inspiration is the work of artists associated in the Wrocław Gallery and Art Brut Studio. The key to performative actions is "word", which in the context of the creators' work gains a new, extended meaning.

Retroperspektywy Festival stands also of CHOREA Theatre performances. One of them is premiere “2.0.4.5. Metaphysical Miniopera” directed by Tomasz Rodowicz. The year 2045 is determined by scientists as the date when a man will achieve immortality. The performance is to be a voice in the discussion about the spiritual condition of modern man and the threats associated with the cyber. How much does the work on artificial intelligence and the latest killing tools pose a real threat to the human species?

The second of the proposals of the CHOREA Theatre is "Hive. Secret Social Life," directed by Janusz Adam Biedrzycki, a story about social roles, family ties, religious submission and love manipulation, which is a source of in-depth knowledge about analogies between the human world and the world of bees. Once again, the CHOREA Theater invited blind and visually impaired people to cooperate.

The organizers of the Festival do not forget about the youngest viewers. For viewers from the age of five, they have the spectacle "Brothers of the Northern Lights", based on little-known fairy tales and legends of the Baltic countries. The performance is multi-layered, rich and beautiful at the level of music, image and light. The musical layer was created by artists associated with the CHOREA Theatre and the CHOREA Theatre Choir. The multicolored paintings are made by actors from the Teatr Figur from Krakow - one of the most famous shadow theaters in Poland.

The final of the festival - music of words and words extracted from music - as part of the neTTheatre concert. The program of this rich musical event was created on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the theater and combines excerpts from the most famous performances of the group: "Kabbalah. Th Book of Brightness", "Sign of Jonah", "Poles", "HIDEOUT / Kryjówka" and "Hindełe, Sister of the Art Master". On the stage, outstanding artists: Mariusz Bonaszewski, Paweł Passini, Paweł Janyst, Beata Passini, D'Roots Brothers, Daniel Moński. The whole in the impressive visualization by Maria Porzyc.

The festival program is complemented by a master class prepared by festival guests: "Word on stage, untapped potential" (Maja Komorowska), "Written word and spoken word" (Irena Jun), "Word transformed into a scenic gesture" (Cláudia Martins and Rafael Carriço, Vortice Dance Company from Portugal).

There will also be workshops for the youngest recipients aged 0-6. Musical classes according to E.E. Gordon's theory will be led by Natalia Wicher. They will consist largely of singing, tonally and rhythmically different songs as well as rhythm players in typical and unusual meters.

All festival events will take place at Art_Inkubator in Fabryka Sztuki in Łódź. Tickets for each of them can be booked and purchased from 1st August 2018, at the CHOREA Theatre Office (festival organizer), or via the form available on the festival website.

Classes are dedicated to families with young children aged 0-6 years and are based on the theory of music education by E.E. Gordon and on the implementation of "live" music, largely improvised. By means of rhythmically and tonally varied chants and rhymes in typical and unusual meters, children are listening to the richness of sounds and rhythms naturally entering the world of music.

The classes are attended by up to 15 children and their guardians, and their duration does not exceed 45 minutes. Classes are conducted in the form of spontaneous play with the help of colorful props used to visualize musical stories. All musical activities are accompanied by movement. Meetings are aimed at educating a young man aware of listening to music, developing the imagination and supporting motor coordination that is so important for the child's development.

The most important goal of teaching according to E.E Gorgon's theory is the ability to audiate or understand music - musical thinking. Huge meaning is therefore not only pure singing and sense of rhythm, but also a smooth, continuous body movement depicting musical motifs, as well as moments of silence, thanks to which children can make musical insights. Teaching takes place through play with the use of, among others, colorful tissues, balls, soap bubbles, Klanza Sheet or other functional items that support the whole of the musical dialogues with children.

Natalia Wicher - MA in Philosophy at the Faculty of Philosophy and History of the University of Lodz and a graduate in Culture Management at the Institute of the Theory of Literature, Theater and Audiovisual Arts at the University of Lodz. Participant of the first degree Gordon course "I improvise, so audiate" organized by the Creative Education Foundation and the Polish Society of Edwin Elias Gordon in Warsaw. Former member of the Łódź choir of the Polish Academy of Sciences, participant of many archaic singing workshops, a lover of Bulgarian traditional songs. She and her husband are not only a life duet but also a musical performing Balkan music in their own arrangements. A mother of two kids who are the best lifeblood, inspiration and motivation to take on life's next challenges.

The workshop organized by CHOREA is based on intensive acting training. The workshop focuses on waking up the “organicity” of an actor, by working with body, dynamic movement, voice, musicality, rhythm, and on applying all these means of expression simultaneously into a singular, complete artistic act. The workshop is also inspired by the concept of collective actor, based on intensive work with partner, and multidimensional - polyrhythmic and polyphonic - ways of working with the group.

CHOREA's method of work has two main qualities: intensity and risk - both physical and resulting from the necessity to transcend the limits of one's abilities. CHOREA workshop is moving beyond the presentation of techniques and teaching. The workshop leads to activate the creativity of the group and to create authentic, dynamic artistic event.

'Spojrzystość' is a concert inspired by texts of famous Polish poet - Boleslaw Lesmian. The concert is created with polyphonic compositions, based on complex rhythmic structures. Rhythm and musicality are the most important categories in Lesmian's texts - they both create an inseparable and harmonious whole with the poetic word. They create incredibly sensual images and reveal very sensitive soul of their creator.
Beautifully performed vocal and choral parts are joined with elements of body percussion. The choral voices are supported by the hypnotic sounds of viola (Paweł Odorowicz), and ambient sounds of guitar (Maciej Staniecki). Together they create an oneiric and mystic world, filled with the most honest and pure human emotions and desires.

Concert 'Spojrzystość' - poetry of Boleslaw Lesmian for 25 voices

Music: Tomasz Krzyżanowski i Paweł Odorowicz (songs: "Z falą niebo" i "Słoneczna opowieść")

The Theatre Academy of Warsaw and the Łódź-based CHOREA Theatre jointly run a theatre project entitled “Hamlets Case Study”, aimed at shaping the contemporary approach to Shakespeare through Wyspiański’s and Grotowski’s texts.

2nd and 3rd year students of the Theatre Academy’s acting department come together with actors of CHOREA Theatre, under direction of Waldemar Raźniak and Tomasz Rodowicz in an attempt at tackling’s Shakespeare’s Hamlet. They approach it using a variety of texts: an archival collection of writings by Jerzy Grotowski from 1964, entitled „Hamlet Case Study”, reviews and records of actors from the Theatre of 13 Rows, and Stanisław Wyspiański’s „Hamlet Case Study”.

'We wanted to put ourselves in the same place that Grotowski’s group of actors found themselves in over 40 years ago. In the place of an unknown, at a crossroads and facing the imminence of a catastrophe as we are to tackle a great text' (T. Rodowicz)

Preview showings of Raźniak and Rodowicz’s performance were preceeded by a series of rehearsals and physical training evocative of Grotowski’s method, as well as work on Shakespeare’s text and team work on building the dramaturgy of the performance. Actors searched for those fragments in Shakespeare’s play that they found closest to their own experience. The performance goes beyond the narrative of Shakespeare’s drama as it is enriched with the actors’ personal statements about their life choices and their own identity.

The performance is an attempt at answering the question of who is Hamlet in today’s world? What made Grotowski follow Wyspiański in his choice of situating Hamlet in a Polish village, in a cemetery? And, most importantly: can one read Shakespeare today with Grotowski?

'The project alludes to the theatre avant-garde of the 60s, of which Jerzy Grotowski’s Laboratorium theatre was a representatntive. This coincides with the year 2017 being proclaimed the official centenary anniversary of the Polish avant-garde. Yet, we don’t create any reconstrutions of Grotowski’s work. Inspired by the courage and the catastrophe of that attempt from 50 years ago, we search for our own narrative and our own risks. An overcoming of the typical means of theatre production is clear in our approach to all of the texts – Shakespeare, Wyspiański and Grotowski. No one has made such an attempt to date.' (T.Rodowicz)

Preview showings will take place on April 1st and 2nd 2017 as part of the action which is part of the „Dotknij Teatru” [Touch The Theatre] initiative within the International Theatre Day celebrations in Łódź.
