This project tended to feature the classic and neoclassic choreographies set to recorded musical pieces by Witold Lutosławski which its presentation complemented with showcases of visual and multimedia works inspired by Lutosławski’s music. This plan provided a platform for confrontation of representatives of different art forms: music, dance, and visual arts in order to broaden Lutosławski’s music audience. Its multidisciplinary aspect was a reference to the multidimensional quality of Lutosławski’s artistic activity as pianist, composer and conductor. Divided into five parts both the choreographers and the authors of the visual setting of the performances, the visual pieces produced acted both as elements of the performances and as a separate part of the event.
My piece in this project, was realised as a video-projection on a large screen in the stage of Wielka hall in Zamek, in Poznan. I made this piece inspired by Witold Lutosławski’s Sonata for Piano, 2nd part: “Adagio Ma Non Troppo”. While swirling, each cubic fragment/sculpture stood symbolically in an analogy with performers/ballerinas. Through projecting of this piece, viewers could experience the profound music of Lutosławski where the virtual space of the projection unified with the physical space/stage of performing dancers.
