Project 'Oj!czysty - prowokacje tuwimowskie' was based on series of workshops for youth. During the workshops we focused on working with texts written by phenomenal polish poet - Julian Tuwim. We played with letters, words and meanings. We created verbal excesses, we played philological tricks and "caught the words in the act." We wrote poetry on the body and by the body, on the walls and pavements, we singed and shouted under the windows, and from the windows. We inverted, misrepresented and seeked for the real meaning.
The project was based on:
- physical workshops (working with the body, movement and partners)
- music workshops (working with the voice and rhythm)
- film workshops (working with techniques of film animation)
- text workshops (reading, writing, speaking, shouting)
The project wass inspierd by the methods and materials collected by Tuwim. We followed his way of thinking, and creating rhymes, anagrams or centons. We looked for your own examples, materials, and methods for stimulating our language and imagination. We had and made fun. The next stage of our work was placing all the language games into the urban space.
Project „Oj!czysty - prowokacje tuwimowskie” was organized by Art Factory in Lodz in cooperation with CHOREA Theatre, financed by Narodowe Centrum Kultury in terms of programe “Ojczysty – dodaj do ulubionych”.
