W minionym roku mieliśmy sporo okazji, żeby przekonać się na jak wiele nas stać. Mimo zewnętrznych niepokojów i zaskakującch okoliczności w świecie kultury, i nie tylko kultury, mamy poczucie, że możemy wszystko. Jesteśmy twórczy i cholernie zdolni. Wena nas nie opuszcza. Pomysły eksplodują. Dobrze organizujemy. Dobrze realizujemy. Ha, dobrze rozliczamy! Nasza sztuka ma charakter! I nie dajcie się zwieść - najwięcej mamy pokory - do pracy, do ludzi i do naszego miejsca w Fabryce Sztuki w Łodzi. Pozwoliliśmy nawet, żeby na jakiś czas młodzi przejęli nasz teatr... A jeśli chodzi o ludzi - to mamy do nich ogromne szczęście.

"VIDOMI - Kontynuacje" w Szczecinie i Bydgoszczy

"VIDOMI - Continuation" in Szczecin and Bydgoszcz

18-20.12.2015
Kana Theatre in Szczecin, MCK in Bydgosz

On December 18th we will perform "Vidomi” in Kana Theatre in Szczecin. On December 19th we will lead music and dance workshops in Specjalny Ośrodek Szkolno-Wychowawczy nr 1 in Bydgoszcz, and on December 20th we wil perform „Vidomi” in Miejskie Centrum Kultury in Bydgoszcz. Workshops and performances will take place in terms of "VIDOMI - Continuation" project.

Project leaders: Janusz Adam Biedrzycki, Magda Paszkiewicz, Joanna Filarska

The project involves a series of theatre, movement, dance and music workshops for blind and visually-impaired young people, and performing the professional performance "VIDOMI".

The main aim of the workshops is to develop body awareness of the participants, to improve their orientation in space, and to teach them techniques of free and smooth motion, to give them selfconfidence and trust by working with others and working in the group. The workshop activities include methods of intensive development of the whole body and voice, and creative improvisation techniques. Through workshops based on working with the body, voice and partner, young people overcame their barriers and limitations, and they are breaking the stereotypes associated with functioning of the blind and visually impaired people in the society.

The performance "VIDOMI" is an attempt to answer the question of what seeing is and what it is not. Do we realize the meaning of the sense of sight? By confronting the visually-impaired with the sighted, we are trying to develop alternative techniques of work, that will cross the physical limitations. We use the synergy of impulses – words, sounds, touch, movement – to create our own language for communication. We are learning to see with our whole bodies, and discover the world based on a different kind of seeing, which does not have to be limited by a physical impairment or the blindness of the mind, or by stereotypical judgments. This kind of work in theatre lets us go beyond the borders which the society puts in front of us in our everyday lives. Theatre becomes a medium, in which differences between us become a tool for creating the reality together. Visual impairment does not need to mean life in the dark. And how do you see it?

CLICK HERE AND WATCH THE FILM

//ERROR 404// production took place on 11th December 2015 in Art_Inkubator in the Art Factory in Łódź.

Direction: Take Over Group
Artistic guidance: Tomasz Rodowicz, Janusz Adam Biedrzycki, Małgorzata Lipczyńska

Performance description
A system is like a labyrinth without an exit. Trying to search for a human in it, we come across a one hidden under a layer of mechanical behaviour, racks and facades that it takes on every day. Basic definitions and statements are lost in the flow of informative stimulants coming in from all sides. We search for a balance between a mechanical and alive being. We struggle against a system, which has absorbed us so much that it changes the shape and boundaries of a human being. How not to get mechanized? The answear /Not found yet/.

About the project
Take Over: Seeing young audiences through young people’s eyes is an international project which gathers the performing arts venues Bios (Greece), Chorea Theatre (Poland), Kolarac (Republic of Serbia) and Teatro Limonaia (Italy) which will re-imagine artistic programmes from the point of view of young adults (18-28). The challenge for venues is to produce a cultural offer that is attractive, creative, up-to-date and/or interactive in order to remain relevant to young adults.

Project lead in years 2014-2017 by British Council (UK) realized within the European Commission program "Creative Europe".

Spektakl "Bachantki" w terenie

Performance "The Bacchae" in the field

29.11.2015
Teatr Realistyczny in Skierniewice

Performance "Bachantki / The Bacchae" by CHOREA Theatre in terms of the project "Culture in the field

date: 29 listopada 2015
hour: 19.00
place: Teatr Realistyczny in Skierniewice

Director: Tomasz Rodowicz
Choreography: Robert M. Hayden
Music: Tomasz Krzyżanowski
Light: Tomasz Krukowski
Sound: Marcin Dobijański
Cast: Joanna Chmielecka, Julia Jakubowska, Majka Justyna, Małgorzata Lipczyńska, Janusz Adam Biedrzycki, Paweł Korbus, Maciej Maciaszek, Adrian Bartczak
Choir: Joanna Filarska, Sandra Gierzek, Joanna Kłos, Aleksandra Kozioł, Milena Kranik, Justyna Sobieraj-Bednarek, Marta Sterna, Elina Toneva, Paula Tralewska, Dara Weinberg, Tomasz Krzyżanowski
Premiere: 26.03.2012, Szwalnia Theatre, Lodz

“The Bacchae”, directed by Tomasz Rodowicz, constitutes the third and final phase of facing Euripides’ most intriguing drama. It is also an attempt to retell this ambiguous play while using a different approach than the one employed in previous projects.

One of the contributors is the American dancer, choreographer and Musician Robert M. Hayden (long-running Ultima Vez collaborator; he also worked on choreography for CHOREA’s Oratorium Dance Project)

Chorea’s first attempt at “The Bacchae” resulted in the “Bakkus” stage play – an international production which was performed in 2006 in cooperation with Earthfall. This was a story about the conflict between law and religion, a warning against fanaticism on the one hand and the abuses of power on the other, a cautionary tale about the crisis of values and the terror of collective responsibility.

The second part – the “Śpiew Eurypidesa” (“Songs of Euripides”) stage play was a tale about collective madness and a warning against dangerous and bigotry-ridden practices. In a collective rapture, a group of women emerges form the choir and reaches for that which is the most intimate and carefully hidden in every individual, but which can also become threatening and lead to murder in a devotional ecstasy – both now and 2.5 thousand years ago. The songs activate dark emotions – energies which, in the presence of the half-god, half-man Dionysus, provoke a degraded ritual– an ambiguous celebration crowned with on a lynch on “the other one” who dares to transgress the social taboos.

“The Bacchae” is a confrontation of these two themes, relating these tensions to modern interpersonal relations. Modern society constitutes a group which is quick to define collective responsibility. With the fading presence of any understanding of a god, which is being replaced by false idols, it is easy to claim omniscience and omnipotence. It is easy to manipulate the emotions of others. Faced with the decay of values, religions and authorities, destruction and aggression towards others become the means of self-definition. In our culture, the necessity of cleansing through a sacrifice has been reduced to acts of scapegoating. Every single one of us feels a simultaneous need for order and chaos, for madness and harmony. Why are we the only species which engages in the slaughter of its own kind while longing deeply for love and the presence of a god?
