The performing arts can express more than a thousand words. This logo will facilitate [totalne milczenie] Being the leitmotif of the XI Tychy Performance Festival – a three-day event in Tychy on June 16-18, 2022. The invited artists will surprise you with performances in the premises of the Municipal Cultural Center of Tychy and selected sites of the city. free entry.

Editing idea [totalne milczenie] It appeared two years ago, and since then – as we know – reality has changed 180 degrees, our values ​​have changed and we ourselves, richer with entirely new experiences, observations and reflections. [totalne milczenie] Doesn’t mean putting water in your mouth. Quite the contrary – the logo for this year’s edition of the Tyskie Performance Festival offers a wide range of possibilities and the opportunity to use a whole range of means of expression, but … except for voice, words and sounds.

Festival Curator Peter Komor says:

Together with invited Polish and foreign artists, novices, critics, masters and doctors of art, photographers dealing with the documentation of artistic activities, a large and committed audience, we want to ask the question: what can convey a performance without words and sounds?

The eleventh edition of this year’s Festival of Performing Art – which seems only difficult and incomprehensible – promises to be interesting, like all previous editions, drawing interest in theme, form and invited guests. It will include top-performing performers from Poland and abroad, and we’ll also see beginners. Moreover, to try to understand the artists – on each of the three days of the festival, in the evening, after the presentation, panel discussions will be held summarizing the performance. This allows not only direct contact with the artists, but also an attempt to explain the means of expression used and their meaning – important if viewers want to understand the performers’ message.

The Tyskie Performance Festival also features one-of-a-kind major performances – this year by Arti Grabowski and Ewa Świdzińska, as well as thematic lectures by performance professionals.

[totalne milczenie] It will be an obligation for artists to reflect in their visual work the need to use words and the meaning and power of other elements of performance art. The invited performers will comment on the state of the surrounding world, and will try to create an elusive, aesthetically unique and ideologically interesting artistic expression. All invited shows will be specially prepared for the Tychy Festival – the program will not include entertainment, previously shown elsewhere – Says Peter Comor.

Entry to all festival events is free, and spectators of the shows are encouraged to soak up their content with all the senses they dare to use. Of course, it can also be viewed, photographed, recorded and recorded in any other way, because it is also the interpretation of performance art that constitutes its additional unexpected value.

Tyski Festival Performance – About the Festival:

The Tyskie Performance Festival is one of the three largest performance festivals in Poland and one of the largest in Central and Eastern Europe. The idea of ​​the festival is to present selected phenomena of contemporary performance, without resorting to shock and scandal, and to fight the stereotype of performative acts as scandalous acts that break all taboos. The festival in Tychy is a work that constitutes “here and now”, a procedure for something important, which is why each release has a major theme that performers have to deal with. The choice of performances presented at Tychy is unique, as evidenced by the great interest of the public in previous sessions of the festival and recognition in the eyes of doctors and fine art masters who are actively involved in the project every year. The festival includes: “TFP Debuts” section, performances, “Master” section, original lectures and panel discussions.
