DEMOLUDY

International Theatre Festival


The DEMOLUDY 2011 will be held from 17 to 22 October 2011.
The idea of our festival is to prepare space for multicultural dialog in East European countries. The past and our heritage is just symbolic point where we should start rethinking our identity. After political transgression theaters from former socialist block countries started to live separately and lost contact. DEMOLUDY Festival is good occasion to see what we're all doing now, what we can offer each other. It's also occasion to think that we're all not closed societies but communities of people living among the ruins of western civilization.

Forgetting about political games we could learn how to talk, how to communicate through art that is beyond all stereotypes and historical resentments.

The name of our festival is self-ironic gesture free of resentments. We're open for all generations. Word "demoludy", which was formerly treated as pejorative name of citizens of former socialist block countries, we use as a gesture of resistance against mass culture.

* The characters of LOST CZECHOSLOVAKIA unsuccessfully seek their identity. Krecik, Krecikowa, Śledcza, Żwirek and Muchomorek are a spectrum of figures, whose provenance reaches Czechoslovak popular culture, contributing to tell an acute story of a dissident woman, once a popular singer, Marta Kubišowa. An overwhelming anguish, indoctrination and powerlessness are “blasted out” by the absurdness of existence.

The characters would find it hard to answer in what country they are actually living and why. They are bound by a feeling of suppression by the omnipotent system, from whose sight, symbolized by the grotesque and demonic Śledcza/ Investigator, there is no escape. “Lost Czechoslovakia” is the first play written by Małgorzata Sikorska-Miszczuk.

Małgorzata Sikorska-Miszczuk (born 1964) playwright, writer; graduated from Gender Studies at the University of Warsaw and the Scenario College PWSFTiT in Lódź. She made her debut in 2004 with the “Psychotherapy For Dogs And Women” drama under the project of TR Warsaw. Two years later her “Death of a Squirrel-Man” was awarded in a competition about the RAF terrorist, Ulrike Meinhof, arranged by Rozmaitości Theatre and Usta-Usta.
