The Intergenerational Movement Choir is an activity addressed to people 50+/-, which combines movement, gymnastics, choreography and dance. The programme of the choir is based on movement tasks and choreographic exercises, which are developed during a workshop lasting several months and ending each time with an open artistic event. To work on movement and choreography of the choir, dance and gymnastic modules are used which are adapted to the current physical abilities of the participants.
For the 2021 season, the Intergenerational Movement Choir has moved into the field. We meet in a chosen, each time different, city space. The participants’ task is to get to know the context of the place, its architectural, historical, social, political, ecological, biological and any other conditions, which will be used to build movement and site-specific/oriented choreography. During the class we look for movement and choreography that tells a story about a place, and then we capture it in photos and a short video. As a finale to the series, we create a performative walk, taking the audience to specific locations and presenting movement and choreography dedicated to those spaces.
Leader: Łukasz Wójcicki
In the first season of IMC the workshops took place online due to pandemonium. We organised the final meeting in Skaryszewski Park, and invited to participate both those who had participated in the online classes so far, and those who came to the weekly meetings in the Common Table workshop room before the pandemic, but also everyone who had never exercised with us before and wanted to try .
Social Dramaturgies is a continuation of cooperation between Teatr Powszechny and Strefa WolnoSłowa Foundation. The idea of the project is to create artistic events which are the result of joint work of artists with the local community – people not professionally connected with art, of various ages and cultural backgrounds.
All project events from April to December 2021 will be accompanied by a programme of meetings and workshops on ecological and social issues – The Common Garden, which includes a sensory and sound installation for toddlers FOREST.
The project is implemented with the financial support of the City of Warsaw.
