This massive performance marathon kicks off with Zdarzenia/Vorfälle, an encounter between dancers and musicians from Vienna, dancers from the Lód\'z-based Körperwerkstatt, and the musician duo SzaZa (Szamburski and Zakrocki) from Warsaw. As the performers challenge each other, the audience is drawn out of its passive role and gets involved in the creative act through group interaction (including a flash mob).
Poland\'s EU council presidency is the subject of a Polish-Hungarian performance that will form the core of the event. The next item on the program is visual: Die Blinden, based on the novel by José Saramago, is an open air spectacle staged by the theatre KTO of Krakow. Compelling images tell the tale of the helplessness, panic, intimidation, and arbitrariness triggered by the blindness epidemic, and examines the way blindness shakes up all the principles we tend to take for granted. Frightening, but powerful.
A production with Pracownia Fizyczna Lódz, Estrada Stoleczna Warszawa, Stadtamt der Hauptstadt Warszawa, Kulturabteilung der Stadt Kraków, Theater KTO Kraków, Polish Institute in Vienna and Collegium Hungaricum. A Coproduction with the MuseumsQuartier Wien.
