Pole Reports from Space

Claire Croizé and Etienne Guilloteau

In Pole Reports from Space, Claire Croizé and Etienne Guilloteau venture into unexplored territory: together with Justyna Kalbarczyk and Krystyna Lama Szydlowska, the choreographers tackle the music of the Polish Radio Experimental Studio. Between the 60s and 80s, composers such as Eugeniusz Rudnik, Elzbieta Sikora and Tomasz Sikorski developed bold and visionary electronic music with a covert subversive message in this studio, under the nose of the communist regime. Pole Reports from Space refers to a work by Rudnik that processes sound recordings of cosmonauts into a unique soundscape. Futurism and utopia, old school Soviet science fiction, activism and progress-oriented thinking are key concepts that inspire Claire and Etienne to create an equally daring choreography that plays with the presence and absence of the body in electronic music.

This production is a commission from the Art Stations Foundation and the Adam Mickiewicz Institute (IAM) and will premiere at the Stary Browar Art Center in Poznán, Poland on September 28.
