RETRO/PER/SPECTIVES: CHOREA. Theatre Festival Łódź 2010 / 13.08.-21.08.2010
RETRO/PER/SPECTIVES: CHOREA. Theatre Festival Łódź 2010 is a space for confrontations, innovative theatre search, a platform for workshop meetings and an arena for discussions of changes in theatre of the 21st century. Every two years, we want to gather prominent Polish and international theatre phenomena, whose existence breaks the anachronistic divisions into the theatre of words, movement and music, returning the unbreakable unity – choreia – a life-giving foundation of theatre. In relation to our festival, CHOREA is not a proper name, but an idea which opens new spaces for theatre, setting tasks for an actor – a storyteller-dancer-singer, and facing the director with new challenges. The director, as in ancient Greece, should be a dramatist, choreographer and composer at the same time. RETRO/PER/SPECTIVES: CHOREA Theatre Festival is a solid reference point on the theatre map of Poland.
Six years of existence of the CHOREA Theatre was a perfect moment to present the first RETRO/PER/SPECTIVE of its intensive activity. That is why the festival presented theatres which cooperate with and are ‘related’ to CHOREA in any way. Festival guests included: Paweł Passini’s neTTheatre of, Piotr Borowski’s Theatre Studio, Kana Theatre, Elżbieta Rojek and Trupa Czango.
