East and Central European Modernity Rebuilding in Performing Arts

La Bellone - Het Huis van de Podiumkunsten
23/11/17 - 24/11/17


De conferentie Remembering 1918: East and Central European Modernity Rebuilding in Performing Arts, die wordt gehouden in La Bellone - het Huis van de Podiumkunsten op 23 en 24 november 2017, haalt zijn bestaansrecht uit de eeuwviering van de val van de Europese rijken en de daaruitvolgende creatie van de Centraal- en Oost-Europese natiestaten, wat gevierd wordt in 2018. De geboorte van deze nieuwe staten ging gepaard met de dubbele verantwoordelijkheid om zich enerzijds over de moderniteit te buigen en zich anderzijds ook een eigen identiteit aan te meten binnen het concert van een veelsoortig Europa. Er wordt dus intensief nagedacht over de vormen die ze meosten aannemen in de politiek, de maatschappij en de kunst.

De conferentie heeft tot doel dieper in te gaan op de noties van moderniteit en avant-garde en hun belichamingen in theater, dans en performance door middel van een dialoog tussen academici en kunstenaars, afkomstig uit Hongarije, Litouwen, Polen, de Tsjechische Republiek, Roemenië en Slowakije. De eerste groep (waaronder Dariusz KOSIŃSKIJustyna MICHALIK et Dorota WALCZAK-DELANOIS) zal er het meest recente onderzoek naar het thema van avant-garde in de podiumkunsten voorstellen.
De tweede groep (met onder meer Joanna LEŚNIEROWSKAMonika DROŻYŃSKAKatarzyna CHMIELEWSKA-JANKOWSKA et Jakub TRUSZKOWSKI) daarentegen zal verduidelijken hoe de vernieuwende gedachtenstromen (rond politiek, kunst en esthetiek), die ontstaan zijn aan de vooravond van de Eerste Wereldoorlog, in hun huidig werk weerklinken.

Deze dialoog zal het vertrekpunt vormen voor een in situ performanceparcours, exclusief gecreëerd voor het gebouw van het Paleis voor de Schone Kunsten in Brussel, dat zal worden voorgesteld op 27 mei 2018 in het kader van het project Remembering 1918 / European Dreams of Becoming Modern.
