Event description

Description

Under the auspices of Gale Brewer, Manhattan Borough President Daniel Herman, Minister of Culture of the Czech Republic, Rehearsal for Truth is a unique festival presenting the best in Central European theater to New York’s public and professional audiences.

The festival will highlight Havel’s legacy as a playwright and activist through live performances, panel discussions, and workshops. The festival will reflect not only Havel’s contribution to twentieth-century theater but also his belief in the potential of Central European cultural traditions to enrich human existence in the modern age.

Rehearsal for Truth is organized by Vaclav Havel Library Foundation and BBLA, in partnership with Czech, Hungarian, Polish and Slovak performing arts institutions and cultural institutes. Over 25 partners have joined forces with the Vaclav Havel Library Foundation and BBLA to launch this festival in 2017.

INTRO is a production from Gdansk Poland created by The Dada von Bzdylow Theatre.

Choreography and performance by Katarzyna Chmielewska, Katarzyna Ustowska, Leszek Bzdyl, Piotr Stanek

"INTRO" by Dada von Bzdülöw Theatre, Anno Domini 2015, draws inspiration, recognition and nervous melancholy from the undying spirit of the Dada movement, which - as its Apostles used to say - was, is and will be. 99 years after the emanation of Dada in Zurich (AD 1916), accompanied by the scent of blood from the trenches of Verdun, national exultation, and the revelations of Fatima - Azazel or whatever he happens to be called by the Talmudists or the Islamists - debuted in Poland. Under the wings of Azazel, Poland has become a thesis, synthesis and antithesis at the same time. Under the authority of Azazel, there's a growing conviction in a Pole that ONE means more than MANY. Dada Theatre, inspired by the spirit of dada, is going to rip the veil off it, and reveal the deadly face of the Angel of Death; it's going to laugh in the face of the Angel of Death. Dada von Bzdülöw Theatre in the play "INTRO", both mockingly and desperately, shouts out: Dada is Polska!!! The shouting and dance of Dada von Bzdülöw Theatre is accompanied by a musical band Nagrobki /Gravestones/.

The show will be performed in Polish with English subtitles
