Krzysztof Warlikowski’s Nowy Theatre in Warsaw together with Komuna/Warszawa, La Comedie de Clermont Ferrand, and Athens Epidaurus Festival has announced a call for participants in the Second Summer Camp. This is a two-week interdisciplinary meeting in Warsaw for selected artists to work together led by exciting Polish and international artists and activists such as Shelley Etkin, Prodromos Tsinikoris, She She Pop, Noviki, and Anna Nowicka. The idea is to “practice, explore the city, discuss, conduct research, and learn from each other,” said the organizer. All workshops will be held in English.
The theme of this year’s camp is Nowe Zasady / New Rules, as the organizers say:
New Rules on our terms!
We believe in sisterhood as a philosophy and a way of working!
What matters most to us is solidarity, community and mutual support. We won’t give up!
We are flexible and refuse to be limited by established orders, unfazed by constant changeability and “suspension”.
Let’s change the rules!
Let’s invent new systems of functioning, creating and living.
Let’s meet and be together, taking part in shared workshops and events. Let’s inspire each other.
TOGETHER WE CREATE NEW RULES!
In the workshops this manifesto will be explored through playing with physical and online presences, algorithms, authorial and autobiographical methods in collaborative settings, vocal and embodied explorations, site-specific work, and questions about the role of culture in shaping broader ecosystems, including the environmental one. The Summer Camp will run between June 27th and July 2nd in Warsaw. Dates: June 27th – July 2nd 2021, Warsaw
Application closes on 10th May 2021. Go here to apply.
The Summer Camp is a part of “Wandering in a search of a home the Ithaca project” Creative Europe.
