Power, gender, desire. Hollywood Classics at Nowy Teatr. Screening and lectures by Agnieszka Graff

Director: Billy Wilder (1950)
A young screenwriter is looking for inspiration, while an old actress – for audience. Their relationship is weird, disturbing and beneficial for both... for a while. Apart from a dead narrator, the film includes a dead chimpanzee (which has a funeral) and Buster Keaton with a brief appearance as Buster Keaton. It’s a really odd film. Long dreams after watching it are guaranteed.

Based on “Elementarz” by Marian Falski
Since 1910, “Elementarz” by Marian Falski has been the first reader for millions of children learning to write in Polish. It belongs firmly in the canon of Polish literature as one of the few works known by almost all Polish-speakers in Poland and abroad. At the same time, as a textbook, it constitutes an invisible but crucial component of our culture. The play introduces the youngest viewers to the fascinating world of speech and writing, familiarizing them with letters and words which serve as signposts. Children accompany the protagonists on a road leading out of the room with Ala and her dog, through the woods and the dark night to a huge city, and eventually into space. Any child, if we just let them dream, can become an astronaut and fly to the stars.
Artists always search for new ways of communicating with the youngest of our viewers. Just like children who learn the first elements of writing, we embark on a journey into the unknown, where every word can become the beginning of a new universe.
The show is intended for audiences aged 1 to 5, but the young at heart are also welcome.
Director: Michał Zadara
Stage designer: Robert Rumas
Music: Jan Duszyński
Cast: Arkadiusz Brykalski, Joanna Drozda, Mateusz Łasowski, Barbara Wysocka and sometimes, if they feel like doing so, their children.

The Call of Cthulhu
The writer of "dream literature despised by critics" (in the words of Michel Houellebecq), H.P. Lovecraft managed to do a thing as difficult as establishing a new religion. He created an integral myth of Cthulhu, ancient old gods whose civilization preceded the appearance of man on Earth and who return to the horror of the characters-narrators of the story.  But the horror does not only come from the actions of the mythical figures, but the flaws and cracks visible in the narrators, making up the portrait of the contemporary society. We keep asking ourselves: what awaits us? What's next?

The Michał Borczuch's show, inspired by a horror seen in the particular vision of the reality, seems to give an answer but we can't tell you what it is. You have to see it yourself. A performance inspired by the most original stories by H. P. Lovecraft – “The Beast in the Cave”, “The Colour Out of Space”, “The Music of Erich Zann”, “The Whisperer in Darkness”, “The Shadow Out of Time”, “The Call of Cthulhu”.

Instalakcje 6: from six to six

Is it enough to attend a concert, listen to the music for two hours and return to everyday life? Why do we spend hours at musical events but rarely go to the philharmonic? Is it ok to sleep or (even worse) dance at a classical music concert? Do we need elite, acoustically flawless temples or places where people collectively listen to the music as well as perform, leave, return and wake up in the middle of a performance?

Under the sixth edition of the Instalakcja festival, a 12-hour concert from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. will be held. It will begin with the sound of falling rice (Michael Pisaro, Ricefall 2 – social project for seniors) and end with adjustment to the harmony of a new day (Karlheinz Stockhausen Stimmung performed by the sextet proMODERN). Kasia Justka will combine music with cooking (and food). Then, Jennifer Torrence will offer some physical activity to Tom Johnson’s Nine Bells. Participants will have a chance to stretch their legs and get tired along with Wilhelm Bras’ music followed by the main element of this year’s edition – the legendary, hypnotising, 6-hour Morton Feldman’s String Quartet No. 2 (1983), which will be performed in Poland for the first time by the fearless NeoQuartet.

06:00 p.m. – 07:30 p.m. Michael Pisaro “Ricefall 2". Performance coordination: Wojtek Blecharz
07:30 p.m. – 08:30 Kasia Justka “Singing Kitchen". Performance: Kasia Justka and the audience
08:30 p.m. – 09:45 p.m. Wilhelm Bras set
09:45 p.m. – 10:45 p.m. Tom Johnson „9 bells". Performance: Jen Torrence
10:45 p.m. – 4:45 a.m. Morton Feldman “String Quartet no.2". Performance: Neo Quartet
4:45 a.m. – 6:00 a.m. Karlheinz Stockhausen “Stimmung”. Performance: Pro Modern Sextet

Curator: Wojtek Blecharz
