TAKE OVER - Młodzi przejmują Teatr CHOREA!


CHOREA Theatre

Here they are! Ambitious, brave, creative - 13 young people, full of energy and ideas - our TAKE OVER Youth Board.

They will take over our Theatre, they will work with us during 2 years. They will create their own artistic event, using our support and experience. We will learn their perspective in understanding art and theatre.

The project Take Over: “Seeing young audiences through young people’s eyes” gathers British Council (UK), Bios (Greece), Chorea Theatre (Poland), Zaduzbina Ilije M. Kolarca (Serbia – “Kolarac”), and Teatro Limonaia (Italy), all organisations active in performing arts, driven by a strong desire to connect or re-connect with young adults (age 18-25) in an effort to engage with a wider and more diverse audience. During the project, the partners will re-imagine artistic programmes from the point of view of younger generations, making a lasting impact on staff and how they involve, engage with and attract young audiences as well as an eye-opening and learning experience for the young participants.

The project proposes an innovative demand-led audience development model, establishing a Youth Board in four arts organisations in order to include young people’s voices and opinions in artistic programmes and visions. Throughout the creation of the Youth Board and the Take Over events in Greece, Poland, Serbia and Italy, partners’ staff will receive training and learn from other European experiences, notably from the UK and Finland. This will help them to better understand how to engage with young people through these innovative techniques. In parallel, the young people participating in the Youth Board will embark into a long term learning experience that will give them a unique insight of the European cultural market and equip them with new skills. In four participating countries, the Youth Board will be in charge of curating and producing “Take Over events”, as a carte blanche for them to create an offer that reflects their generation’s cultural aspirations.

The work plan includes twenty activities: a study visit, participatory workshops, a baseline and impact survey, a European seminar, series of Youth Board sessions, a mentoring scheme, four bespoke Take Over events, an external evaluation, one final conference, one online platform complemented by local communication strategies.

The results will be the promotion of a more inclusive and upstream approach of Young Audience Development in the European performing arts sector, a blueprint for Arts professionals to re-think their programmes and services from the perspective of their audience, a new generation of cultural players equipped with new skills and a unique insight of the European cultural market.

Alicja Tranda

For a couple of years I unsuccessfully try not to dance and sing. When I do not move – I fall asleep, when I do not sing for a long time – I become a little spiritless. I need theatre and I want theatre to need me. Architectural studies changed my perception so that you can meet me while I’m looking for some interesting detail in seemingly bare walls (...).

I am a mixture of crazy ideas and self-discipline. I mask my exuberant ambition with perfectionism. I study very unprofitable subject, which causes me great joy (...). I am master of diplomacy. I admire people whose ideas enrapture me. In spite of all, I am in love with an “ugly” city – Lodz. I hate being late. I am allergic to cats and pollens. I always forget about all possible anniversaries. When I will be old, I plan to sail my boat across the Finnish lakes dressed in thick sweater.

Basia Cieślewicz
I love theatre and dance and that is why I took part in Take Over. I am good at getting along with people. However, I often become secretive and talk without words. I like to share what I can with others and make people happy. I would like to help people see how big their potentials are. I would like for emotional disrobing to inspire people to think.

Damian Kukiaka

Damian Kukiałka
I am a person full of energy and ambition. That is the reason “I am human, I consider nothing human alien to me." I believe that everyone should get an impulse from life. I always try to look at things from a different perspective, which makes me certain of the decisions I've made. I do everything to make my dreams come true and I am rarely lead by the words of others. I love trying new things that fill me with inimitable and unusual experiences.

An ASP graduate, improviser, icons’ painter who is cheerful, spontaneous, and maybe even a little crazy. Recently I've been called ... a human with a light spirit, keenly reacting to breezes of Ghost. Important thoughts are with me: "Be free like a bird" and “In perspective of the world, of an icon or a human, be like a child." I dream about being like a child, but not becoming infantile, since those are two different things. I move a lot and I try to move others.

(...) I am a perfectionist and since I became aware of that, life is a lot easier. I like loughing very much. Considering my desire to reach perfection in every inch, working with me is not easy, nevertheless effective(...).I study English Philology but deep down in my soul, I dream about putting a tutu on, running on a stage and being a model for Degas. I tend to be crazy and my friends claim I am high off life. I love to sing. Creating things gives me pleasure. I often take up new challenges which make my life unstable but adventurous. I would not change anything.

(...) At the theatre I am trying to set difficult, uncomfortable questions. It not always must be nicely. In particular fascinates me a dark side of each of us. Some kind of evil and just human defects. I believe in the extraordinary power of the theatre. I believe into his influence on people. Also important is a real team. Team wherein everyone want to do one's best. It's only way to create something special, something interesting, something real. And of course in theater is no place to the full democracy, but final effect should be a result of the work of everyone.

Ewa Otomańska
I’m a brand new graduate of the theatre and film class in high school in Lodz. I love new challenges, finding and overcoming the boundaries brings her the greatest satisfaction. Movement is her way to communicate emotions in the most real and human way. I see theatre as a place for the manifesto and a space to meet another man. Above all, I appreciate humility values, freedom, honesty and chocolate.

My name is Karolina and I can’t live without: coffee, chocolate and tomatoes, art, music and singing, friendship, gratitude and joy.I like myths and legends from traditional cultures and ornaments on everything from Romanian architecture to a piece of cloth – I see stories in them as well…!My grandfather is a craftsman and I love every piece of hand-made stuff. When I need to think something over, I seek for some nature.When I need to t a k e something over, I sing up for the project. And here’s the first thing we’ve all got in common, I think!

TAKE OVER w Szkocji

Take Over in Scotland


On 25-29 August a few people from our Take Over Youth Board, together with the coordinators of TAKE OVER Project will visit Edinburgh at Fringe Festival, one of the most important and certainly the most interesting theater event in the world.

The British Council’s biennial Edinburgh Showcase is the single biggest opportunity for UK theatre companies to introduce their work to international promoters. The programme comprises new work that represents the very best of contemporary theatre and dance, reflecting the breadth and diversity of British performing arts. Since the British Council’s first Showcase in 1997 the event has given 350 theatre and dance companies the opportunity to tour overseas, building new relationships and opening up new markets for the UK’s performing arts.

"Gilgamesh" composed by Tomasz Krzyzanowski performed by CHOREA Theatre is a unique and original reading of one of the oldest surviving epic poems. This is the first full musical adaptation of the “Epic of Gilgamesh” inspired by the sound of forgotten Akkadian language and mysterious culture of Ancient Sumer.

During the concert, the audience can listen to a story of the legendary king – Gilgamesh, and his search of the secret of immortality. Vocal parts in original Akkadian language, based on the ancient texts written in cuneiform on stone tablets from the second century B.C., alternate with songs in Polish translation. In the musical layer, elements of contemporary music come together with elements of musical traditions from Middle and Far East. Polyphonic compositions give new life to mythical images, and transfer us into a distant, forgotten world full of still valid and important questions and emotions.

Light and sound: Tomasz Krukowski 
Premiere: 30.07.2011, Lodz Philharmonic Orchestra Festiwal "Colours of Poland", Arkadia, Nieborow

CHOREA artists create a spectacular concert of ancient music. Broken, odd rhythms and polyphonic chants, reconstructed from twenty five hundred years old inscriptions on papyrus and stone, are vibrating with modern, dynamic energy. The singers, dancers and musicians work hand in hand, and they are fluently taking each others' places in turns.

We have tried to interpret this ancient musical material and compositions with reference to very rich Balkan musical tradition, and currently we tend to be drifting towards jazz, oriental sounds and contemporary music. Inspired by the ancient art, we create our own art – deeply modern – created on the clash of unknown, almost lost and forgotten European heritage and contemporary language of sounds.
