On Wednesday and Thursday, 19-20 June (7 pm), concluding the 10th Poznań Ballet Spring, the ZAMEK Culture Centre (ul. Św. Marcin 80/82) is presenting the premiere of Lutosławski. Wieczór młodych choreografów [Lutosławski: Young Choreographers’ Evening],a project embracing choreographies from young artists affiliated with the Grand Theatre in Poznań, developed under the artistic supervision of Jacek Przybyłowicz. The project is part of the programme “Lutosławski 2013 – Promesa” implemented by the Institute of Music and Dance.
The project features classic and neoclassic choreographies set to recorded musical pieces by Witold Lutosławski. Its presentation will be complemented with showcases of visual and multimedia works inspired by Lutosławski’s music. The project provides a platform for confrontation of representatives of different artforms: music, dance, and visual arts. This multidisciplinary aspect is a reference to the multidimensional quality of Lutosławski’s artistic activity as pianist, composer and conductor.
The project, meant to become a regular event, aims to discover and develop the potential of young artists, and to integrate different artistic communities, facilitate an exchange of experiences and the development of international cooperation.
Divided into five parts, the evening will embrace short choreographic forms. Both the choreographers (members of Poznań’s Grand Theatre’s ballet), and the authors of the visual setting of the performances, intermission or the accompanying exhibition, have been coached by recognised authorities in their respective fields.The debuting young artists, representing dance but also other arts, have all worked inspired by Lutosławski music. The visual pieces produced act both as elements of the performances and as a separate part of the event. The project aims to broaden the audience of Lutosławski’s music and to inspire young choreographers to create classic and neoclassic choreographies set to the music of contemporary Polish composers.After the performance, a discussion panel will be held.
