9 Lives of the “Eastern” Artist:

Surviving the Changes

An International Symposium with Accompanying Cultural Program and Blog

Thirty years after the fall of communism in Central Europe, an inter-generational non-academic gathering to reflect together on how to be true to ourselves and our audiences as we move AHEAD.

Five provocative lecture performances by devised performance makers and dance movers and shakers from the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia. Three engaging symposium panels focused on Love, War and Nature, from the perspective of Central and East European matadors of the independent arts. Discussions, debates, and new provocative writings in a beautiful university town. The symposium will be conducted in English.

Organized by producers of Prague’s Bazaar Festival, partners from all four countries and hosted by Palackého University and the Na Cucky Theatre this two and a half day symposium in Olomouc challenges all participants to think and work together outside of the box: instead of focusing non-stop on collaborations with Western European aesthetics, artists, organizations and funding systems, let’s take the time to remind ourselves who we are, what our recent past is, what we want, what our audiences need and what we have in common with other artists and artistic communities in Central and Eastern Europe. Artists in our countries have experienced so many changes in society in such a short time, invested so much faith, so much energy… They have had three or seven or nine different lives already. How does one find energy to believe in a new better system again and again? How do we orient ourselves in the world?

Special Lecture Performances: ESSENCE OF POLAND by acclaimed experimental theatre specialist Wojtek Ziemilski (PL), STRIP! by body art performance artist Pina Brutal (HU), plus LECTURE PERFORMANCES by Oskár Čepan Award winner Džumelec AKA Erik Sikora (SK), and devised theatre wizard Jan Mocek (CZ)

With Panel discussion leaders: LOVE: Sodja Lotker (CZ, DAMU academy, ex-Prague Quadrennial, freelance dramaturg), WAR: Piotr Gruszczyński (PL, Nowy Teatr dramaturg), NATURE: Mája Hriešik, (SK, theatre and dance dramaturg, director and writer)

    Pomoc sąsiedzka – Twój gest ma znaczenie

    Ze względu na ryzyko zakażenia koronawirusem powinniśmy ograniczać wyjścia z domu. Dotyczy to zwłaszcza osób starszych i z obniżoną odpornością, w tym przewlekle chorych. Dlatego miasto ruszyło z akcją zachęcającą mieszkańców do pomocy osobom, które najpilniej potrzebują wsparcia.
