In Search of New Forms

JK Opole goes to unknown territories with experimental programme on Modelatornia stage.

21 April 2021

Launched this year, Triennale programme is dedicated to new forms and experimenting artists. We start in May with the enfant terrible of Polish theatre – Anna Karasińska. She prepares a new piece inspired by histories of medicine quacks. After residency of Not happened yet collective, it will be the first full production of our three years anti-festival.

After that, we are throwing ourselves on deep water with new group piece by acclaimed choreographer Renata Piotrowska-Auffret. With the help of four dancers and four actors, she will dive into the subject of togetherness, touch and fear of the Other in the pandemic realm, using Danse Macabre phenomenon as a key.

To close the season, we’re opening JK Theatre for a new wave of experimenting artists. After finishing open call for fourth edition of Modelatornia competition, we’re preparing for late-spring/summertime residencies. Three groups of theatre makers will participate in series of workshops, dedicated to the subject of Katharsis. Given space, time and resources, they’ll prepare work-in-progress pieces shown to the public. As the aftermath, international Jury will be choosing one group to create full production on Modelatornia stage in late 2021.
