It’s a scandal: The ethos of avant-garde
The first meeting under a series of lectures by Dorota Semenowicz.
Scandal was first used purposely as a tool to affect the audience by the avant garde. It aimed to restore the art, open the audience to radically new things. We will refer to avant garde practices using shock to ask what the ethos of avant garde is and how it penetrates our thoughts today.
26 September 08:00 p.m.

It happened in Baltimore, 1951. 31-year-old Henrietta had uterine cancer and died after several months of unsuccessful treatment. She didn’t know that she had her cells which were able to multiply taken. She didn’t learn about HeLa cells and the reaction they produced among scientists. Her five children didn’t receive any support while disloyal doctors gained symbolic and/or material profits thanks to her. This is a melodrama worthy of a Hollywood production. But wouldn’t it be better to look at Henrietta Lacks’ story from a joint perspective and calmly think about the ownership of the cells? Would the scientific progress be possible if we had the right to claim a financial compensation for the tissues? Would there be a price list of cells? What would be the price of a healthy or cancerous one? Which one would be more valuable? It also raises doubts about the democracy of medical progress. Who profits and benefits from it? The story of Henrietta and HeLa cells refers to numerous topics but doesn’t provide any answers. It plays with conscience, experience and beliefs.

The Indians Theatre workshop
An incredible journey to the world of a theatre play. A unique chance to show the audience an original theatre set. Together, we will set our own camp on stage and go on a journey in search of stories hidden among theatre props.
An introduction and supplement to topics mentioned in the performance “The Indians”. Both those who have already seen the play as well as those who are going to are welcomed. A great chance to have fun with family. That is why, we invite children with parents. Tribe stories, Indian names, songs, dream catchers and totems will be the reason to meet and discuss such issues as community, bravery, diversification, human relations with nature and people themselves.
The workshop will be coordinated by: Dagna Dąbrowiecka, Katarzyna Trzeszkowska and one of the actors from Teatr 21.
Entry fee: PLN 5/person
