DAY 8 - worth seeing


Today is the penultimate of the maltafestival poznań 2010. But the Festival programme is not even close to ending and the day will be packed with some very attractive new proposals. 

In the morning, at the Museum Archaeology Courtyard, we will begin the second day of the Polish/Flemish forum Obraz/ Wyobrażenie (Image/Imagination). This time the emphasis will be on the word "politics". We will reflect upon how the act of imaging connects to critical thought. In what way can images contribute to the creation of our knowledge about the world? Where does aesthetics meet the problematic social and political experience? What is the role of artists and how do institutional conditions affect the delivery of the products of their imagination?

10.30 a.m.: Opening lecture, Andrzej Leder

11.15 a.m.: Panel, Taboo in Theatre

12.45 p.m.: Panel, The Artist as an Individualist vs. the Creative Collective

3 p.m.: Panel, The Organisation of Theatrical Life in Poland and in Belgium

4 p.m.: Review

Participants: Andrzej Leder, Marianne van Kerkhoven, Dorota Semenowicz, Paweł Mościcki, Luk Van den Dries, Ann Olearts, Paweł Płoski, Steven Vandervelden, Paweł Sztarbowski

At 5 p.m., we invite you to the Museum of Archaeology Audiovisual Hall to see DichtVorm, a collection of fifteen short animated films directed by young Flemish artists. The scripts are based on Flemish poetry. This eclectic compilation of short films shows a wide range of animation techniques and the individual visual languages of each of the directors.

At 6 p.m., at the Poznań International Fair, Hall 7A, we will see the show Sutra. Created by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, a world-famous Flemish choreographer, winner of the Kairos German dancing award, Sutra is the effect of the artist's stay (with the sculptor Antony Gormley and the composer Szymon Brzóska) in a Chinese Shaolin temple. The dreamlike show, featuring monks, Zen disciples, focuses on the bond between an adult and an 11-year-old. Sutra combines yoga with Sufic trance, miming, the sign language, speech and spontaneous singing. Since its première at London's Sadler’s Wells in May 2008, it has been receiving enthusiastic reviews all over the world.

The next dance proposal today is Couple like. Ugo Dehaes' and Keren Levi's duet explores the various combinations of the harmonising bodies, the changeable waves and intensities of emotions in a relationship between two people, the subsequent stages of that relationship. It is the corporeal compositions that create images which take the viewer into a world of tenderness, trust and caresses. (7 p.m., Maski Theatre Centre)

The Truth About the Kennedys is a tale about a family which became a legend. As he builds a show based on documentary data, on biographies, press releases and witness testimonies, Luk Perceval tries to find the truth about a group of people whose lives were entangled by some dire twists of fate. Perceval's shows usually avail of large spaces and do not feature impressive visual stage set tricks focusing exclusively on the acting. (7.30 p.m., Teatr Wielki)

Cheap Lecture & The Cow Piece will start at 9 p.m., in the Old Brewery (Słodownia, 3rd floor). Cheap lecture is a rhythmic spoken performance set to music. In a rant about empty hands, audience, time, repetition and dancing, Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion reflect upon and continue the journey begun in their earlier work. It is accompanied by The Cow Piece, a chaotic meditation upon dance, music and mortality.

Finally, at 11 p.m., the Festival Club will present Snowman. The band is already very popular among the Malta audience. In 2009, their first album Lazy brought them a nomination for the Trójka radio station Mateusze award for best debut. So far, they have been known for their trance-like sets and slow, eclectic sound combining electro, jazz and pop rock. This year they will play a completely new version of their music which will be much more melodic, dynamic and song-focused.

After the concert, we invite you, as usual, to the Silent Disco starting at midnight.
