The Amareya Theatreis celebrating its 10th birthday this year. The artists are going to mark the occasion with three premieres, an art exhibition, a film screening, presentations of performances from the company’s repertoire and merrymaking with fans, friends, artists and family. To start off, on 25 October, the premiere of Katarzyna Pastuszak’s solo piece titled 2. Then, on 27 October, the premiere of the Amareya’s group performance directed by Dorota Androsz, fetish.wtf. Both presentations are taking place at Żak Club. The main celebrations are planned for 23-24 November at Winda Club in Gdańsk-Wrzeszcz (GAK).
Katarzyna Pastuszak’s2 is a project about dialogue, becoming different in the face of difference, being in between one and the other, being one and the other at the same time. Its production marks the Amaraeya Theatre’s 10th anniversary and is part of Katarzyn Pastuszak’s project 33_33_33, embracing 33 performances and artistic actions taking place in the course of 365 days, staring on the artist’s birthday on 16 August 2013 and finishing on her birthday next year.
