Double bill

Futurism behind the iron curtain: STUK honors the 'forgotten' Polish Experimental Radio Studio (PRES) with a double bill full of dance, image and sound.

PROGRAMME

20:30 The Space Between - SZUM (noise) (STUK Labozaal)
21:00 Claire Croizé & Etienne Guilloteau / ECCE - Pole Reports From Space (STUK Soetezaal)

STUK pays tribute to the iconic Polish Radio Experimental Studio (PRES) with a multidisciplinary double bill. Established in Warsaw, PRES music studio (1957-2004) was a haven for visionary electroacoustic music in communist Poland. Only in recent years have the futuristic synthesizer creations by PRES-composers been rediscovered.

Combining the sound of PRES with the flavor of the 80s soviet sciencefiction, choreographers Claire Croizé and Etienne Guilloteau created the dance performance Pole Reports from Space. Two Polish dancers enter a futuristic dreamscape. Like cosmonauts whirling through space, or perhaps like ghosts behind an opaque wall, they try desperately to communicate. Pole Reports from Space is an exercise in encoding and decoding their message, and an invitation for the audience to join. A vision of the future as seen from the past, at once utopian and nostalgic.

The dance performance will be preceded by the première of SZUM (noise) by the collective The Space Between. STUK invited audio storyteller Katharina Smets, video artist Ingrid Leonard and sound artist Inne Eysermans to create a transmedia performance inspired by the history of the music studio and creative freedom.
