Location: Alfred ve dvoře / in the Courtyard
Event Type: excerpts from works and discussion with artists

The Saturday Bazaar has become such an essential part of the programme that each year the festival team emancipates it a little more, transforming it into a kind of festival within a festival. This year, the Saturday Bazaar will take place on 25 March in the depths of the independent Alfred ve dvoře theatre. Visitors will have the opportunity to catch a glimpse of extracts from works currently being made by dance and theatre artists based in Central Europe. It’s a direct and relevant dialogue with emerging art, which, in many cases, has yet to encounter an audience. This year will again feature a wide range of themes and approaches from two Czech and two international creative groups. Spectators will be able to further reflect on these provocative, surprising and, above all, fresh extracts in stimulating moderated discussions.

Program of Saturday’s Bazaar:

  1. Karolin Poska & Co. (Sveta Grigorjeva, Maret Tamme and Shion Yokoo-Ruttas) / (EE): LUCKY CHARM
  2. Katharina Joy Book and Eszter Koncz (DE/HU/CZ): TORNADO WATCH
  3. Ludvík Píza and Zuzana Šklíbová (CZ): CHALUPÁŘKY / THE COTTAGE WOMEN
  4. Haibo Illés and Richárd Melykó (HU): BEHAVIOUR SET

The projects are carried out as part of Live Performance Bazaar Residencies with financial support from the European Union. Karolin Poska & Co.’s project is supported by the Culture Moves Europe programme.

Haibo Illés & Richárd Melykó are developing a provocative choreographic installation that balances the control and freedom of Hungary’s cultural existence. Estonian artist Karolin Poska and dancers are researching the human longing to control one’s surroundings for a performance. DAMU students Kathrina Joy Book and Eszter Konzc are trying to control future, fictional and impossible weather, while Ludvík Píza and Zuzana Šklíbová are focusing on the leisure practice of cottage-going under socialism, a time when many found a refuge from control at their own cottages.

The Saturday Bazaar takes place in English.
