One-to-one participative performance

Nice to meet you

 

In NICE TO MEET YOU, two strangers meet each other for the first time, online. Each from their own home. They reveal a private part of their life through the space that they are in and the objects that live with them. Another part remains a secret. The performer invites you to search for the poetry in the little things. It’s a celebration of our everydayness!

Language café

L'apéro du café Français

 

Our volunteers from France, Liah Escroignard and Laura Bouflet, are here thanks to the European Solidarity Corps program Erasmus+. In their country, it is a good habit to meet outside on the terraces and talk over a glass of wine. They will try to create a similar atmosphere online - join them. Of course with a glass of wine in hand. And don't forget to dress appropriately for this occasion. The aim of the café is not to teach French, but to create a French-speaking group. To book a virtual table and register, write to liah@stanica.sk. 

Admission: FREE

Residency

Tomáš Janypka vo Sphére 5

 

The starting point for Tomáš Janypka's fifth creative entry is again the dancer's body in dialogue with the Sphere space. This time it will reflect the opening exhibition of works by Mary Duras and Vladimír Havrill. Intervening with her will be a study of slowness. This will be shown in the liveliness of the statue, the staticity of the body, meditation in movement, and slowness.

Lecture-performance

UNTERGRUNDLOS – no grounds

 

In this lecture-performance, Brazilian artists Bárbara Galego and Felipe dos Santos reflect on their experiences as Brazilian artists working on German territory. Taking a previous performance called BODENLOS as a starting point, the two bring up questions about roots, language, territoriality, colonial history, and performativity. At the end of the day, what does it mean to perform in a language that is not your own? The performance will be followed by a discussion with the artists.

The band is composed of singer and guitarist Jakub Spiszak (Our Stories, Genuine Jacks), bassist Martin Fratrič and drummer Philip Petison.
