During this amazing concert, beautiful flamenco costumes and props will appear on the stage: like bata de cola dress or colorful embroidered scarves (mantons). The artists will introduce the viewers to the atmosphere and the history of the presented pieces. The stage will be governed by a rhythm, a feast of emotions and colors. Sorrow, suffering and longing will be intertwined with joy, energy and love…

By 1962, two of the silver screen’s great leading ladies, Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, were has-beens. The women – both famed for playing strong independent characters, both with difficult personal lives and both a long way past 40 – had been replaced by a new breed of perky blonde stars. Then they got an unexpected opportunity: playing opposite each other in what was to become a cult classic, What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?

It says a great deal about how little the opportunities for female actors have changed in 50 years. On their roles in this backlot two-hander like starving women who have not glimpsed meat for years. Because they have so much fun with the roles, we have fun, too: it is little more than a rehash of old Hollywood gossip, buying unquestioningly into the idea that strong, successful women are all bitches at heart.

After forty years of living together do we know everything about our partner? It is not even about some hidden secrets, but about a never-ending desires, aspirations or preferences. For the first time Grażyna and Marian stay in a luxury hotel to celebrate the 40th anniversary of their marriage totally different, as they did before. However, they do not know the practical meaning of the word “luxury”, which causes even problem of getting into the room or aversion to the exotic – as per their taste – menu in the local restaurant. It would seem this is a standard situation of a marriage from countryside. The weekend would have been a more miserable, when a man came out under the bed (a newly elected minister who is in a very awkward situation), and the receptionist who supposes an intercourse among of these three people to spice up their boring married life. The Prime Minister has the minister up, but the minister can not reveal himself for fear of scandal (in the opinion of the public, because he is known as a morally incorruptible man). From that point the couple begins to rebuild their lives (in erotic way as well). Danny, the concierge – Daniel, but his colleagues call him so – would most likely turn this not-exist-triangle into an-exist-quadrangle. Who and how will come out of this situation, when for each side the situation starts to be uncomfortable?

One act ballet in 19 scenes
The leading motives of THE WHITE are emotions that torment a man throughout his life, from birth to death. This one-act dance performance is kept in a very simple, almost ascetic style – white costumes, white light and lack of stage design.
The White is a dozen sublime stories about emotions: fear, despair, confusion, joy, sadness, longing and more, which the composer – Laurent Uhres – included in the sounds of string music mixed with contemporary sounds.
 
Natalia Maria Wojciechowska’s choreographies, maintained in a post-classical style, emphasize in a non-literal way what is contained in music and create compositions that are sometimes painted, sometimes delicately drawn or drawn with movement.

 
Choreography by Natalia Maria Wojciechowska
Music by Laurent Uhres

Radosław Lis „Don Lis”

Can, and if so, to what extent actor-dancer identify as a farmer at the same time? What kind of impact on the author of this piece has the fact of being raised in rural, multigenerational family of farmers? Using the tools he has, the performer tries to transcode and express what he took from working on the farm as a foundation of body work on the field of dance.

Dramaturgy: Andrzej Michalski
Production: MAAT Festival 2018

Paweł Świerczek „Of Coal and Rainbow”

The picture of miners coming back home from work with their eyelines painted black is a common childhood memory among Silesians. Before we realized it’s just coal dirt, we’d been asking ourselves: Why do those men wear makeup? Don’t they say make up is just for women?
Miner’s eye is a potential queer rupture in patriarchal Silesian culture. “Of Coal and Rainbow” confronts this eye with an eye of the drag queen (the oldest one in the Upper Silesia). What comes up of mixing up those two traditions and how Silesian queer community can use it to create unique local identity? Is it even possible or is self-colonization the only way to be queer in Eastern Europe nowadays?
