RESEARCH WORKSHOP

 

From September 2013 under the supervision of Aleksander Rybotycki from the State Ethnographic Museum and Renata Włoch from the Sociology Institute of the Warsaw University and team Strefa WolnoSłowa Foundation, the research workshop of the project has been created. The participants has visited the migrant places in the city of Warsaw and made interviews with representatives of national minorities. In the workshop take part the participants of the Strefa WolnoSłowa theater workshops as well as the students from the Department of Sociology of the Warsaw University. All the materials – literary and photographic, collected during the workshop will be used in the conclusive performance and become an inspiration to work with international artists during the creative workshops in May and December in the State Ethnographic Museum.

 

PRE-WORKSHOPS OF THE PROJECT 

 

As a preparation for the Warsaw international part of the project, in December 2013,  multicultural creative workshops were held. The starting point for the improvisation and workshop video and theater work were the concepts of the border and the wall – their metaphorical meaning present in culture and everyday life. The group of fifteen participants took part in theatre, video and sound workshops inspired by poems of Papusza. Participants tested the use of pipes that will be the main element used in the installation of the State Ethnographic Museum.
