DAY THREE- worth seeing


The third day of the maltafestival is here packed with new proposals and opportunities to see shows that premiered on the first two days.

The morning dose of positive emotions plus a little chaos will be provided by Compagnie ex nihilo at Półwiejska Street at 10 a.m. The group enjoys having an effect on urban space and adapts each project to a specific site. In Trajets de vie the dancers will take over one of the city quarters seeking maximum interaction with the audience to reflect the urban noise, excessive stimuli and the inattention that accompanies them – in other words the lack of real contact with others, something that many of us experience on a daily basis (second show at 6.30 p.m.).

At 1 p.m., in the Museum of Archaeology Courtyard, Paweł Mościcki will lead a meeting with the members of Abattoir Ferme, and at 3 p.m., Marcin Maćkiewicz will lead the discussion panel Anniversary, 20 Years of Malta, 10 Years of Teatr Usta Usta.

Sad face/Happy face is a trilogy with the subtitle Three Tales on Human Nature comprising the instalments Isabella’s Room, The Lobster Shop and The Deer House. Jan Lauwers & Needcompany have created a show that is a reflection on modern times combining biographical elements of the company members with events that concern us all, for example the war in the Balkans which had a negative effect on the whole of Europe (4 p.m. Poznań International Fair).

If you are not going to see Sad face/Happy face we wish to invite you to see the film Goldfish Game directed by Jan Lauwers (5 p.m. Museum of Archaeology Audiovisual Hall).

The female performing/culinary group MASH/HER/DIP invites you at 7 p.m. to Kolacja z kanarkiem (Dinner with a Canary). The project is yet another instalment of this year's New Situations. The premise of Dinner with a Canary is a reference to the bourgeois traditions of socialising, especially those related to the stereotypes of Poznań and the Wielkopolska Region culinary traditions. Important: admission subject to prior reservation (kolacjazkanarkiem@malta-festival.pl) and evening dress.

Bonanza is a 'theatre movie' by the company Berlin. It is part of the Holocene series comprising portraits of four cities: Jerusalem (2004), Iqaluit, Canada (2005/2009), Moscow (2009) and Bonanza, USA (2006). The small town used to be a mining Eldorado. Today its population comprises seven residents who create a specific micro world which Berlin enters in search for universal relationships (7.30 p.m. and 9 p.m., Old Slaughterhouse, Engine Room).

Arequiem is a promenade performance by Periplum, inspired by William Blake's Songs of Innocence and Robert Brwoning's Porphyria’s Lover. The performance pulsates with music, light and the artists' impressive feats as they explore public space and entertainment perceived as a primitive show in which observation also carries the weight of involvement (10. p.m. Wroniecka Street – near the synagogue).

At another site and in a more static performance we will see Movements Factory in the project Bodyland which relates to the tradition of tableaux vivants. Developed especially for the Śródka district and about Śródka, the show will take place in Śródka Market at 10 p.m.

At the end of the day, at the Festival Club we will listen to the band Muchy from Poznań (11 p.m.), followed, as usual, by the Silent Disco (midnight).
