Siłaczka: performative installation
Event at the meeting point of physical theatre and installation. Open Space at R50 building.
Siłaczka (Strongwoman) is a project where art objects, light and sound come into organic relations with the performer’s body. The spectacle is a joint fantasy of the authors on the theme of strength. Their personal associations, quotes from popular culture and artistic fantasies brought to life three creations/personas that embody the strength of excess, the strength of charisma and the strength of physical work. We fantasize about strength. We desire it, although the desire manifests itself in a multitide of figures.

This year’s Teatrogranty edition refers to the 90th anniversary of Konrad Swinarski’s birth. We believe that our tribute to the artist will be best expressed through a project that involves different levels of acting techniques and possibilities of character creation.
