The Voice of the Excluded

Program details

Details of the program


The main goal of the project launched by Michał Znaniecki and the Jutropera Foundation is to create theatrical and musical performances as the product of cooperation between marginalised social groups and professional artists. Starting from 2013, they have worked together in order to stage performances such as: Searching for Lear: Verdi, Midsummer Night’s Dream and Peter and the Wolf. For each of the performances, different socially excluded groups are invited to collaborate: national minorities, orphans, prisoners, residents of old people’s homes and psychiatric patients. The excluded will also work and act with professional artists – stars of the opera world. 
 

Performances and workshops will be prepared both by Polish participants, foreign artists and institutions from cities twinned with Wroclaw. Workshops will involve inhabitants from over 15 cities; therefore, by mixing diverse languages, experiences and emotions, the project will become a meeting platform for artists, social and public institutions and each member of the social groups excluded from the official circulation of art and culture. As the result of such a collaboration and artistic exchange, it will be possible for the project to come into being in other parts of Europe. Plans for its culmination in 2016 anticipate international artists and performances in Wroclaw, and in 2017 the project of the Jutropera Foundation will be promoted and presented on other continents. At that time, the works of art produced in this joint effort will act as an emotional link between the nations and, in consequence, they will form an artistic flagship project of the European Capital of Culture Wroclaw 2016. 

Searching for Lear: Verdi is an original piece created by Michał Znaniecki and carried out by the Jutropera Foundation. It is part of the project THE VOICE OF THE EXCLUDED. Its goal is to introduce people who usually have a limited access to culture to the world of theatre and music. Over the years, a series of performances will come into existence, and each will encourage a different socially excluded group to act on stage alongside acclaimed professional artists. The Wroclaw show [Searching for Lear: Verdi] engages residents of social welfare homes run by the Municipal Social Services Centre (MCUS) in Wroclaw to perform together with stars of the opera and the theatre world. Among the lead actors are: Jerzy Artysz (King Lear), Ewa Biegas (Cordelia), Karina Skrzeszewska (Goneril), Marta Mika (Regan) and Wojciech Malajkat (Fool).
