Plugawe oko poetyJUSTYNA SZAFRAN I SZTYLETY
Plugawe Oko Poety
Plugawe Oko Poety (The Filthy Eye of the Poet) is an unusual concert resulting from the meeting of a group of artists/friends who wanted to recall the “cursed poet”, i.e. authors who infringed social and cultural standards expressing their views in ways perceived as shocking. Today, defiance and radicalism have been objectified loosing their potential to change reality. Justyna Szafran and Sztylety avail of texts by Pier Paolo Pasolini, Charles Bukowski, Sylvia Plath, Allen Ginsberg and Wystan Hugh Auden to remind listeners that, despite their subversive views and often scandalous behaviour, the “cursed poets” were capable of depicting the filth and ugliness of the world in an unusually beautiful and moving way as they explored the causes of its decline. Their poetry will be sung by Justyna Szafran in the rock-psychedelic context of Krzysztof Wiki Nowikow’s music.
Justyna Szafran is an actress and singer who describes herself as an enthusiast for any kind of infringement. She is a regular member of Teatr Muzyczny Capitol we Wrocławiu.
