Join the Other Theatre School for its third workshop and expedition of the year!



The Other Theatre School


For about twenty years we have been making annual expeditions to the Suwalki region of Poland, where village residents have preserved the local tradition of the "Alleluia Going". The event, prepared through the collaboration of workshop participants, alludes to rural forms of Easter carolling; however, it is also a search for multicultural, theatrical and authentic continuity oriented equally toward the past and the future. The group's "going" in the rural Suwalki borderland area is based on spring-themed folk songs from various regions of Poland, Belarus and Ukraine. The journey ends in a final meeting of the village residents (and guests) on the night of "Wet" Easter Monday. The shared holiday celebration culminates in a performance created by workshop participants. Each year the development of this performance is an attempt at answering the question of how to work with traditional material. The turning point along this journey occurred in 2010, when we chose the theme of "roots and shoots" (named after Jane Goodall's organization). Elements such as earth and water, present in the oldest rituals, became a canvas for reflection on the future of the world. In this way we created the pieces "Water 2030" and "Earth B", which draw attention to imminent global environmental crises.

This year we invite people who are active and willing to take creative risks to participate in the next cycle of work.

Alelujki, The Other Theatre School 2016

The workshop will end with the expedition and Easter Carolling in the Suwalki region

If you are interested in participating in this project, we ask that you email us by 7 March at the latest. People who are new to The Other Theatre School's workshops are requested to provide three short descriptive statements

barrierenfreie Toilette im Theater

author: fieldwork project
date: May 18, 2015
  Crowdfunding für Theater Węgajty: Wir sammeln für eine barrierenfreie Toilette im Theater!

Über das Projekt und wie man spenden kann.

UNSER ZIEL

Wir möchten die enge und für körperlich beeinträchtigte Menschen völlig ungeeignete Toilette im Theater „Wegajty“ renovieren und für Rollstuhlfahrer zuänglich machen.


Sen nocy letniej


Das Projekt ist eine Antwort auf ein wirkliches, dringendes Bedürfnis. Heute kann sich niemand mehr Schulen, Behörden, Tankstellen oder Geschäfte ohne behindenertengerechte Toiletten vorstellen. Und ein Theater? Sollte es nicht allen zugänglich sein? Wenn dieses Theater sich dazu noch programmatisch gegen die Ausgrenzung engagiert und Inszenierungen mit Beteiligung von Menschen mit körperlichen Behinderungen veranstaltet? Wie soll es agieren wenn die Voraussetzungen dafür fehlen??


Jedno ze wspólnych spotkań w DPS…


Seit einigen Jahren realisieren wir Theaterprojekte in dem in unserer Nachbarschaft gelegenen Altersheim Jonkowo. Dort haben wir imJahre 2009 eine gemeinsame Theatergruppe ins Leben gerufen. Sie besteht aus Einwohnern des Seniorenheims und Schauspielern unseres Theaters. Wir haben bisher vier Stücke auf Textgrundlagen von solchen Autoren wie Wyspiański, Gombrowicz, Shakespeare und Bruno Schulz zur Aufführung gebracht. Die Proben und die Aufführungen finden sowohl im Seniorenheim als auch im Theater Węgajty statt. Wegen der mobile Einschränkungen unserer Gruppenmitglieder ist diese Arbeit organisatorisch nicht einfach.


Jedno ze wspólnych spotkań w DPS…


Der zweite Bereich unserer Aktivitäten, für den der Umbau unserer Toilette dringend notwendig ist, ist unser jährlich veranstaltetes Sommerfestival “Theatre Village”. Nicht nur im Zuschauerraum kann man hier Menschen mit Behinderungen finden. Auch unter den Darbietern des Festivals gibt es immer wieder Menschen auf Rollstühlen.
Wir träumen davon, dass das nächste, für die Zeit vom 18. Bis 25. Juli 2015 geplante Festival in einem barrierefreien, für alle Menschen zugänglichen Raum stattfinden wird. Im vergangenen Jahr haben wir die Kunst des Nicht-Ausgrenzens zum Thema unseres Festivals gemacht – nun wollen wir sie in konkrete, praktische Lösungen umsetzen.
Wer sind wir? Wo arbeiten wir?
Węgajty ist ein kleines, ermländisches Dorf, 18 km von der Stadt Olsztyn im Nordosten Polens entfernt. Hier haben sich Erdmute und Wacław Sobaszek im Jahre 1982 in einem ehemaligen Bauernhof angesiedelt. Die Scheune wurde zum Arbeitsplatz der Olsztyner “Pracownia”, eines interdisziplinären Zentrums für Kreativität und Forschung. 1986 entstand hier das Dorftheater Węgajty, welches sich 10 Jahre später in zwei Gruppen aufteilte: Schola Węgajty und Theater Węgajty. Seit 2003 organisiert das Theater Węgajty das Festival “Theatre Village” und seit 2008 das an den Berührungspunkt zwischen Theater unsd Therapie anknüpfende Programm “The necessary Theatre”.


Widok z górki na budynek Teatru


Im Wald befindet sich eine L ichtung, auf ihr ein kleines, unscheinbares Haus mit einer Scheune. Ein hölzerner Zigeunerwagen gehört noch zu diesem Theatergehöft. Nebenan findet der Besucher die aus grünen Zweigen geflochtene “Sommerbühne” und einen Steinkreis für die abendlichen Lagerfeuer. Auf der Tenne der Scheune haben schon viele erhitzte Diskussionen nach den Aufführungen stattgefunden, das Echo der Węgajtener Tanzfeste ist hier auch noch zu hören. Wenn man das Gebäude betritt, bekommt man im Kaminzimmer – dem hiesigen “Foyer” – Rauchgeruch in die Nase. Hier wartet man vor Beginn der Aufführungen auf das Sich-Ӧffnen der Eingangstür zum Theatersaal. Die hohe Saaldecke und der hölzerne Fuẞboden geben eine gute Grundlage zum Spielen und Zuschauen für alle. Auch an Rollstuhlrampen, die die Unebenheiten und Türschwellen ausgleichen, ist gedacht.


Spektakl Nieczekaj Lecilaty Teatru Lalek Gałązen z Dąbrowy Dolnej


Und nur die Toilette lässt zu wünschen übrig. Mit einem Rollstuhl kommt man garnicht erst hinein, es gibt kein warmes Wasser, von Haltegriffen und einem Wickeltisch ganz zu schweigen. Helft uns, das zu ändern!
Was wollen wir erreichen?
Die neue Toilette soll vor Allem funktional sein. Aber natürlich soll sie auch schön werden!


Wir werden alles umbauen müssen: Der Innenraum soll durch Neuverlegung von Klo, Waschbecken und Duschecke geräumiger werden, um ausreichend Platz zum Wenden für Rollstühle zu geben. Es wird aber auch nötig sein, eine Innenwand umzusetzen, eine neue, breitere Tür einzusetzen und ein neues Fenster in den benachbarten, durch den Umbau nun der Lichtquelle beraubten Küchenraum einzubauen. Drinnen in der Toilette wollen wir behindertengerechte Haltegriffe und entsprechende Armaturen einbauen: ein neues Klo, Waschbecken mit vom Rollstuhl aus erreichbarem Wasserhahn und einen speziellen Sitz unter der Dusche. Natürlich denken wir auch an Eltern mit Kindern, deshalb muss ein Wickeltisch her, unumgänglich ist auch ein Durchlauferhitzer, um endlich warmes Wasser zu haben. Die Wänden werden mit speziellen, extra für unser Projekt unendgeltlich hergestellten KACHELN bedeck. Der Entwurf der Keramikerin Vi. (Wiktoria Rutkowska) berücksichtigt die Möglichkeit, auf Wunsch der Spender ihre Initialen einzubrennen – ihr müsst nur so eine Kachel als Preis für Eure Spende aus unserer Liste auswählen!


Wir sind daran gewöhnt, in unserem Theater vieles auf der Basis von Freiwilligenhilfe zu machen, aber diesmal werden wir Fachleute anstellen müssen. Wir haben eine Firma aus der Nachbarschaft mit dem Umbau beauftragt, um mit dem Unternehmen lokale Arbeitsplätze zu unterstützen.
Liebe Spender! Die Regeln dieser Crowdfunding Aktion sind streng: wir müssen die im Kostenvoranschlag deklarierte Summe von 17 000 zł (ca 4050 Euro) zusammenbringen. Wenn die Spenden am Ende, d.h. am 7. Juni um 12.00 nicht auf diesen Stand gelangt sind, wird die Aktion ungültig gemacht, und alle Spender bekommen ihre Einlagen zurück. Das gibt den Spendern die Sicherheit, dass das gemeinsame Ziel, für welches gespendet wurde, wirklich erreicht wird. Die Spender haben aber auch ein Recht darauf, zu erfahren, auf welche Weise wir eventuelle, über die Summe vonn 17 000 zł herausgehende Einkünfte nutzen wollen: Wenn wir 18 500 zł bekommen, wollen wir ein einfaches, ökologisches Trockenklo hinter das Theater stellen, um die Warteschlangen während des Festivals etwas zu kürzen. Für weitere Spenden würden wir auch gerne die Toilette im Festivalbüro zuendebringen, die aus Mangel an Geld seit Jahren im Rohzustand verblieben ist.

Zeitplan:
Mai – 7. Juni: Sammelaktion
Juni: Bauarbeiten
Juni – August: Herstellen und Verschicken der Preise
18.-25. Juli: Festival “Theatre Village” – die feierliche Eröffnung der Toilette findet am ersten Tag des Festivals statt


Warum Crowdfunding:

Wir haben für unser Theater jahrelang intensives und erfolgreiches Fundrising betrieben. Jedoch aus formellen Gründen ist es für uns nicht möglich, für diese einfache Investition öffentliche Gelder zu bekommen. Aus eigenen Kräften schaffen wir es aber nicht! Aus diesm Grunde haben wir daran gedacht, uns an alle zu wenden, die aufgrund von gemensamen Ideen bereit sind, die Welt durch kleine Gesten verbessern zu helfen. Wir möchten durch unsere Aktion auch die Idee propagieren, dass alle öffentlichen Orte barrierefrei sein sollten.

Crowdfunding in Polen: das Spendeverfahren


Um an eine breite Öffentlichkeit zu gelangen haben wir uns dem in Polen sehr populären Spenden-Server Polakpotrafi angeschlossen. Der Spender bekommt auf diese Weise die Garantie, dass alles richtig läuft und gleichzeitig auch einen kleinen Anreiz: Für alle, die das möchten, stehen kleine Preise für die jeweilige Gabe bereit. Auf der rechten Seite des Tabs befindet sich eine Preisliste. Um zu spenden, muss man einen dieser Preise bzw. (wenn man keinen Preis will) die erste Position auf der Liste “Nagroda za 1 zł lub więcej” abrufen und das grüne Feld “Wesprzyj projekt” klicken. Erst dann kann man sich einloggen und – nachdem man den gespendeten Betrag bestätigt bzw. nach eigenem Ermessen korrigiert hat – zur Zahlung übergehen. Für Ausländer gibt es die Möglichkeit, in Euro zu zahlen. Dazu muss man den Zahlungs-Kanal “SEPA” aus der Liste der Banken auswählen, der einen je nach Wahl auf deutsch oder englisch die Zahlungsdaten für die Überweisung erstellt.
Noch ein Hinweis für alle, die sich einen Preis wählen wollen, der per Post geschickt wird: rechnet bitte die Porto-Kosten zu Eurer Spende dazu, weil die Kosten von Auslandspäckchen bzw. Briefen höher sind als im Inland!
Ja, und wenn all dies zu kompliziert ist … könnt ihr eure Spenden an unseren Partneverein Labsa überweisen. Wir haben nämlich vereinbart, das Labsa eure Spenden an uns weiterleitet!

The work is composed from many elements of actor's training: movement, voice, improvisation, animation of puppets, creating of solo and groups etudes. The work will be closed by open performance. The workshop is opened for everybody who is ready for the intensive work and it will be leaded in Polish and English language.


Justyna Wielgus (Poland/Albania) - actress, movement teacher, cultural animator. She cooperated with the Wegajt Theatre for years. Since 2007 she is cooperating with the Centre of Performing Arts.

Visitors - a network of necessary theatre

author: fieldwork project
date: Mar 15, 2010
  Our new project for 2010/2011:
Visitors - a network of necessary theatre

Theater groups find their way to refugee centers, prisons, distant villages. They work on performances and during a common event they provoke a dialog with the audience. The dialog introduces further activity, the spectators become actors. Together, with partner groups and centers we create a network of such activities. Phases:

* Workshop exchange: building of practical bridges between very remote options. Between theater working in micro communities of Social Care Houses and radical theater of youth revolt, pararitual theater acting in ethnic borderlands, intervention Forum theater, others.

* Visits: The members of partner companies and cultural animation students create new workshop groups. We develop performances referring to the cultural context of communities in Albania, Greece, Germany and in Poland. Visits: theater events including those communities' participation. Draft titles of the performances are: Burgunda, Forum Theater, Trojan Women, New Year Show, Animals Carnival, Alilujka & Maskenspiel, Syncretic Carnival, i>Spring of People

* Visitors Meeting: weblog, film documentation, analyses gathered during seminary sessions. For new forms of expression, therapy, communication. For the theatre which is needed.

  Remarks on the realization of the 2009
"Theatre Village" Project

Imagine a place where you can be yourself. Where you do not hear the roar of traffic beneath your window, but only the sounds of chirping birds, laughing children and maybe a barking dog. Where instead of driving to reach your destination, you walk down quiet country roads. Where art is not the domain of the privileged few, but an experience which all might share.

VOCAL PRACTICES

author: fieldwork project
date: Aug 7, 2008
  
Practicing the vocal structures of the ancient
vibrating song we experience something that
memory and perception have forgotten:
A state of being outside of chaos.

EWA BENESZ
VOCAL PRACTICES

With Alfred Buchholz and Cenco Atzeni

There is an ancient heredity in which it is believed that
sound and the word were the primordial cause at the origin of every thing, at the origin of man himself; that sound was a creative spring of matter and that the human voice could have a creative force.



The vocal practices surprise us for their simplicity and for the extreme rigor with which they hold the attention of the singer. It is not only a vocal exercise. A song is not a lengthening of thought, spoken out loud, nor is it the will to seek an expression. It is the sonority of breathing, the resonance of sound in the body and in space.

The voice is incarnated in me. I try to discover the source of the voice and free the sonorous breathing. I try to recognize the places of the body’s resonance. I try to learn what helps me and what disturbs me in re-finding the sonority of the voice inside me and in the space around me. Until I become a live instrument that generates sound. Until I become sound. I feel the vibration of breathing and I am aware of the space. I see and I feel the space.

Song unites human beings with the space. I hear the silence and I am alert in song, I rest in song. Is it I who sings or something that sings in me? Something ancestral that lives deep inside me awakes and sings. I am a witness.

SONG IS AN ACTION. The vocal practices articulate a life process. They break down to elementary expression, to the truth. It can happen that I discover an active force in song: confidence, trust.

Song unites a human being with another human.
We improvise. We try to create, in action, a new song,

Ewa Benesz


The VOCAL PRACTICES come from ancient Oriental traditions and from the experience in Jerzy Grotowski’s Theatre Laboratory in Wroclaw, Poland.

Festival Theatre Village 2007

author: Hannah Harvester
date: Dec 16, 2007
  One freezing night during the 5th annual "Wioska Teatralna" Festival at Teatr Wegajty, we all huddled over cups of steaming Thai soup in the wooden barn that served as the theater's museum, lecture hall, movie theater, cafe and dance floor. The July nights were cold, but the savory, aromatic soup, made by a friend of the theater, hit the spot. "Music, food and spirit," said Mieczyslaw Litwinski, who was leading a song workshop that week with Saba Krasoczko. He elaborated: "I used to say, music and spirit. But good food is just as important." The next morning during a voice and body workshop we played a circle game involving naming our favorite foods. We played in English, and the foods were kept simple: bread, butter, apples?until one woman said: "Thai soup." In another context, this may have sounded strange. Instead a wave of sound passed around the circle: "mmmm." Everyone had eaten the same soup the night before, inhaled its fragrance, been warmed by it in the cold night. For at least a few hours, Thai soup was everyone's favorite food. It united the festival's "villagers" as much as the shared performances, jam sessions, dancing, and wildflower-walks, at a theater that provides nourishment for body, mind and spirit.

  Thank you - everybody who gave financial support to Abdel Mandili, the victim of the racist atac 22/23 of July at our festival "Theatre Village"! Your quick reaction helped to cover the most urgent costs connected with his stay at the hospital. Until now we collected 1070 zl - about 270 Euro. Abdel still will need medical care. His financial situation is complicated as well, because until now he is not in state to earn money. That's why we decided to continue collecting money.

Attack

author: Wacław Sobaszek
date: Aug 1, 2006
  On the 22nd of July 2006 in the square of Wegajty village near the fire station a celebration to end the 4th day of the Wioska Teatralna festival was held. The same day a theatre group Migrator which is composed mostly of refugees living in Poland or trying to get a refugee status has performed in the Wegajty theatre. After a demonstration of capoeira made by local practitioners and their brazilian teacher and after a concert of two music bands, the feast was coming to an end. It was after midnight already. Then suddenly the attack followed. As the hosts of the festival we can claim that on the basis of our own observations and of the police research (today it is a week after the accident) we are sure that the act was a provocation realized by the persons from outside and not the citizens of Wegajty. This provocation was directed not only against the marroccan actor but also against the esense of the theatre activities taking place in the area of the Wegajty village.

It all started in the end of 1995 when at the attics of Wegajty houses we have found old animal masks, the props of earlier ritual theatre, the forgotten tradition of "walking with 'szemel' (the white horse)". We started to reconstruct that ritual form together with the villagers of Wegajty. Around those occurently organised research seminars, new theatre projects and performances inspired by the ritual theatre of Warmia were presented. It is important to mention that there are still many native Warmia citizens now living in Wegajty. From the stage of reconstruction with time we have reached the form of interculturing activities. The conciuosness of local traditions were ment to constitute the basis for meeting the others. The fire station and the square of Wegajty became a stamped ground exactly for this role. For years it has been a place where people from different countries and continents, all four sides of the world met. A year ago someone painted a graffiti on the wall of the fire station: "a multicultured folk group 'wioha' ". The graffiti survived until now. Some may not like it. Especially those who are willing to destroy the dialogue and the openness for other cultures and other human-being.

Festival "Theatre Village" in Węgajty

author: fieldwork project
date: Jul 10, 2006
  19th - 26th of July 2006

The festival events will happen in the space of our theatre center near Węgajty close to the forest, but also in the village itself. What's important for us is the traditional culture in several aspects - its meaning in the local and international context and its changes in our postmodern times. The themes of theatre performances and other festival meetings will be problems of neighbourhood and ethnic conflicts but also the "borderland existing inside us", our own experience with meeting the Other.

Our guests will be people who are working in the sphere of borderlands: The Cieszyn Theatre Studio will show us the newest spectacle Kawkaskij priwiet ("Greetings from Caucasus"). We will have occasion to see the legendary spectacle Kroniki sejnenskie ("The Sejny Cronicles") created in the Borderland Centre in Sejny, hopefully also the "Migrator Theatre", a group of imigrants living in Poland. The title of their performance is Rasa pieczątek ("The Race of the Rubber Stamps"). A special event will be the open air play Domograj by "Strażnicy północy", the group working in our neighbourhood. We organizers, the Theatre Węgajty/projekt terenowy would show the second part of the spectacle Synczyzna ("Sonland") under the title Trans-Atlantyk, an adaptation of Witold Gombrowicz's novel. Also our newest theatre work, a play for children Myszy istnieją ("Mice do exist"). The festival will be the occasion to open up one of our new projects for children: Theatrical pedagogic activities. At the beginning two animators from Dortmund, Barbara Szpunier and Emilia Hagelganz , will lead a theatre workshop for the village kids and will tell us about the project "Carla Chamaeleon Nordstadt Buch" realized in Dortmund.

That's not all. We plan also a meeting with the emigrants from Tibet, film projections, a dance-feast in the village (in the famous fire-house), an open air multimedial event. We will introduce two extraordinary books: Posłaniec słowa by Andrzej Suryn and The Path of the Borderland by Krzysztof Czyżewski at 21th of July and the meeting with the author We invite also to take part at the theatre workshops, wich are organized in the time of the festival. The exact programme of the workshops will be biuld up soon. Please look at our website next week and contact us if you need more information.

A Different School of Theatre In Wegajty

author: fieldwork project
date: Jan 31, 2006
  
Stage 3 of Zapusty

07/02/06- 12/02/06


* Traditional creatures and masks of the winter cycle
* Traditional songs
* Creation of new masks and scenarios for the eternally developing annual performance of "Ostatki Zapusty"

The idea behind "Ostatki Zapusty" is based on the movement of rural ritual theatre forms into the urban environment. Firstly, throughout December and January, we make carolling expeditions to far and remote areas in the border regions and in the mountains. Then, in the village area and the space of the homestead, there is a revitalizing theatre of tremendous energy.

By performing this Zapusty ritual we seek to leave visible footprints of this energy in vital points of the urban space. These are such places as hostels for the homeless, Nursing Homes, homes for the infirm and elderly, psychiatric hospitals, prisons etc.

The musical, choreographic and artistic motifs come from different cultures, beliefs and religions. This is why we call this kind of performance 'syncretic'.

The period of Carnival/Zapusty is a time of transformations when the old times are transformed into the new. We bring to life these old scenes using the animal figures of the Historic and ethnographic value, such as the 'Szemel" the warmian white hobby horse, and the 'koza', wild goat. However, with the help of young adepts, we annually create new masks and improvisations.

Beginning of Workshop: 07/02/06 19.00hrs

Finish: 12/02/06 around 13.00hrs

Cost: 250 zloty (this includes evening accommodation and half board (dinner and supper), small donation towards the cost of organization. For previous participants of this project, we look forward to offering a 20% discount.

Please bring with you loose clothes (and some warm clothes), strong shoes and a sleeping bag.

Bookings and confirmations to be made by 25/01/06.

People who have not previously participated in " Different School of Theatre" are also requested to supply a small note about their previous experiences and interests.

We will confirm your booking by e-mail, by 27th of January.

Colenda-workshop and expedition

author: fieldwork project
date: Dec 15, 2005
  Participation in colenda is a sort of come back to the beginning. We teach beginners, we learn too. To be close to the world of children imagination. This is not obvious. Material we will use is contained in the carrols. There is also another material in the carrols, connected with problems of the adult world, so we hope not to become infantile. Where we will make colenda? The true village does not exist anymore. This area is very reduced and changed into "terra del rimorso", where only old, lonely, ill people live. There is much to do on this area. First of all the material of carrols, dances, colenda dialogues, contain a remedy against depression of the people. Secondly we think also of reasons of the situation. The etnic conflicts actually did not finish, people did not solve them. Conflicts continue to live under the surface. It will have a special meaning to use in such places our repertoire. It is a repertoire we collected during years, a syncretic one, mixing motifs from cultural borderlands. The particular oikumene is possible, but rather a seculiar than religious one.

Now the dates:

The first stage of the project starts in Wegajty at 28th of December at 5 p.m. and lasts till 31th. On this day we will make colenda in the neigbourhood village.

The second stage begins at 3th of January in Wegajty and moves to a carpathian village on 6th of January, lasting to the 8th of the same month.

We ask you to send a declaration which stage you would prefere to choose. We can possibly offer only one of the stages, because the number of names on the list is already too long. Probably we also will negotiate the dates if needed. Please send your declarations till 10 of December. Give as much comunication possibilities as possible, mobiles, maile etc.

Costs:
first stage - 45 Euro, including bed, lunch and supper (The participants buy the breakfeast themselves)
second stage - ca 65 Euro (the precise cost depends on the travel cost to the carpathian region)

You will need: a sleeping-bag, strong shoes and warm clothes. For the second stage a carimat is necessary.
