We are pleased to announce the results of the competition for the realisation of the “Wieczory Dziadowskie: cz. 3” [Forefathers’ Eves, vol. 3] premiere. The jury comprised by Iwona Pasińska (director), Adriana Mikołajczak (deputy director), Anna Królica (programme curator), Regina LIssowska-Postaremczak (PR specialist) and Andrzej Kryczka (specialist for the dissemination of performances) evaluated a vast number of applications. The submitted and presented concepts were original and valuable, posing considerable difficulty to the selection panel. Upon extensive deliberation, the jury decided to invite two authors representingtwo different visions to develop the project produced at the Polish Dance Theatre. The two artists selected for the collaboration were:
1. Tomasz Bazan ? Kinetic exercises/ rytuał biologiczny [Biological ritual]
2. Aleksandra Dziurosz and Tomasz Szczepanek?s ? Niech żywi grzebią umarłych [Let the living bury the dead].
Our congratulations to the winners!
The idea of the project Wieczory dziadowskie: Tryptyk (Forefathers’ Eves: A Triptych ) refers to the tradtition of Conrad Drzewiecki’s Polish Eves (jw.), initiated in 1973. The project will include three premieres. The starting point for the cycle is Adam Mickiewicz?s Forefathers’ Eve, with the three proejcts amounting to a unique platform for creative competition. The organisers intend to continue to announce competitions for the realisation of premieres in accordance with the company?s artistic programme.
Details will be announced in the autumn in collaboration with the organiser.
The premiere presentations of Forefathers’ Eves: A Triptych will take place on 25-27 May 2017 in Poznań.
