Day 5: starting with Theatre Spirits

08 December 2015

The fifth day of the festival started at noon with the launch of the exhibition "Theatre Spirits" at Bunkier Sztuki gallery.
The interactive exhibition includes a multimedia installation, 3D projections, photographic collages and phonosphere. It allows the viewers to experience things that are often hidden from them and meet people who usually remain in the shadow.
The tickets costs a symbollic sum of PLN 1, so once you are at the gallery you can use your money to buy the festival catalogue (over 200 pages for just PLN 7).
The theme of the exhibition was reflected in Michał Buszewicz's "Technical Question" (PARADISO: Young Artists section, 3 p.m.

 After the launch, at 2 p.m. we met the artists behind Krzysztof Warlikowski's "The French": Piotr Gruszczyński (the dramaturgist) and actors Piotr Polak and Jacek Poniedziałek.

 Today is also the second day of the INFERNO contest, including showings of Mikołaj Grabowski's  "The Pupil" (5 p.m.), Grzegorz Jarzyna's "Martyrs" (8 p.m.) and Paweł Miśkiewicz's "Wintter Journey". Each performance was followed by a meeting with the artists. There was also another showing of "The French" - a  performance that got a standing ovation yesterday (6 p.m.).

 Simultaneously started the one woman show "The King" by Małgorzata Warsicka, starring Matylda Baczyńska. Gory, violent lines are juxtaposed with lightness, humour and irony that feel like a breath of fresh air both in the theatrical formula and Słowacki's theatre. The day finished with "LORD BEMOL" - a premiere concert of the new Skolias siblings' band. The concert was inspired by their father, Jorgos Skolias - jazz singer of Greek descent. Text in "LORD BEMOL" is based on a play by Mateusz Pakuła. The admission was free - which must have come as good news for all those who couldn't resist buying divine T-shirts at the Festival Centre.
