    Intergenerational Movement Choir

    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.

    Intergenerational Movement Choir 2021

    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.

    Intergenerational Movement Choir - against Violence!
    On Wednesday 25 November 2020, on the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and the first day of the global 16 Days Against Gender-Based Violence Campaign, the Strefa WolnoSłowa, as part of the Intergenerational Movement Choir project, invited to a joint hybrid action in real and virtual, which was a performance of a symbolic choreography inspired by gestures of resistance from various demonstrations and protests against violence.

    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

     

    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.

    The project includes events within the School for Community Playwrights – a creative and training group for those already writing and those interested in writing for engaged theatre, which is centred around the idea of community creation, drawing on the real stories of project participants. The musical part of the project is again taken care of by Sound in Space Orchestra, a grassroots space for beginners as well as professional musicians, and a place for everyone interested in experimenting with sound, musical improvisation and learning to listen. The open group created under the baton of Ray Dickaty will give concerts and invite other musicians, as well as work on making their own instruments.
     
    As part of the Social Dramaturgies project, you can also join the Intergenerational Movement Choir – an activity addressed to people 50+/-, which brings generations together through movement, gymnastics, choreography and dance. The Choir’s programme is built on movement tasks and choreographic exercises, which will be developed during a workshop lasting several months and ending with an open show for the public. The work on movement and choreography of the IMC uses dance and gymnastic modules adapted to the current physical abilities of the participants.

    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.
