        As part of the 2014 Feast Festival, ActNow Theatre presented three work-in-progress performances of Zero Feet Away. Where did you meet your first love? How would you describe yourself to a stranger? Where’s the best place to be kissed? What do you never talk about in public? How do you find intimacy in a virtual world? Following the rise of dating applications such as Tinder and Grindr, Zero Feet Away explores how we find intimacy in virtual spaces, and what actually happens in our heads our hearts and our bedrooms. Created by a team of professional and community young gay artists. This is innovative, provocative, inspiring and honest theatre not to be missed. Audience members became apart of this exciting work in progress interactive theatre experiment. They used their mobile phones to facilitate anonymous and safe conversation about sexuality, intimacy and identity, influencing the live performance.

                  Nie uczestniczę, ale kocham was | 6th of September, 2014 | Centre of Contemporary Art | CSW Znaki Czasu in Torun, Poland | Milczenie Marcela Duchampa jest przeceniane | The Silence of Marcel Duchamp Is Overrated | (exhibition curated by Piotr Lisowski) | Part of annex to ARENA (exhibition curated by Dobrila Denegri) The project The Silence of Marcel Duchamp is Overrated constitutes an appendix to the exhibition Arena exploring the variety of artistic methods and cultural involvement on social and political plane in the broad sense of the phrase. Its shape and character has been determined by the theme of the exhibition inspired by Joseph Beuys’ artistic stance and particularly his practices involving reflection on the social role of the artist and art as well as establishing new relations in creating and modernizing social relationships. The title of the project has been taken from Beuys’ 1964 action, where the artist entered into a dialogue with Marcel Duchamp’s achievement, criticizing his decision to abandon artistic activities. This demand for presence, participation and responsibility is founded on faith in the creative power of every individual, muffled only by standardization of behaviour, artificial social, political and cultural limitations. Narration designed in the plan of the appendix is divided into four parts and made of individual presentations where presence and participation come down to the following: exclusion, diagnosis, manipulation, radicalism, anarchism, relation and survival. The consistency of this not necessarily linear range constitutes a form of negotiation and confrontation but also a form of obligation to everyday world whose most valuable features are mutual relations. | Piotr Lisowski, curator ............................................................................................................................................................................................... Film dokumentujący zdarzenie performatywne “Nie uczestniczę, ale kocham was”, które zostało zrealizowane dnia 06.09.2014 w CSW Znaki Czasu w Toruniu. Uczestniczyły w nim dwie grupy ludzi. Jedna grupa przyszła na obiad, wybrawszy dania z wcześniej przygotowanego menu. Druga grupa pojawiła się zachęcona wykładem dr Katarzyny Lewandowskiej pt. “Seksualność w kulturze buddyjskiej (joga tantryczna)”. Oba odrębne zdarzenia odbyły się w tej samej przestrzeni otwierając tym samym przestrzeń interakcji oraz wymiany emocjonalnej pomiędzy grupami osób. Publiczność dopiero na miejscu orientuje się, że zdarzenia, na które została zaproszona, nakładają się i dzieją symultanicznie. Obie sytuacje wiążą się pewnymi ogólnie przyjętymi zachowaniami właściwymi dla charakteru wydarzenia, wymagającymi od uczestników konwencjonalnego postępowania. Zachwianie tych reguł i wprowadzenie dysonansu pozostaje pretekstem do obserwacji i badania ludzkiego zachowania. Jak ludzie będą reagować na dobrze znaną, ale jednocześnie kompletnie nową sytuację – nie wiadomo. Być może oba zdarzenia przebiegną bez zakłóceń; być może ludzie zareagują gwałtownie, czując się zmanipulowani. Wszystkie te reakcje pozostają częścią projektu, a każda z nich ma rację bytu w tej przestrzeni. Wypowiedzi uczestników zostały zarejestrowane po zakończeniu zdarzenia i ukazane w końcowej części filmu. “Nie uczestniczę, ale kocham was” kwestionuje nasze oczekiwania dotyczące sposobów uczestnictwa w wydarzeniach społecznych.

                    The Wertheimpark bathes in the glow of a radiant cloud of butterflies, hundreds of which hover above the ground in continuous, upward flight. On the Wings of Freedom is an interactive artwork conceived by Gloria Ronchi and Claudio Benghi (aka Aether & Hemera). The butterfly as a symbol for a quick transformation is twofold for this installation. On the Wings of Freedom is about the way in which the pervasiveness of technology is changing our society and how little we realize it. Think about it: we can manipulate the flight of these butterflies, their color and the patterns of light with just a few clicks on our smartphones. At the same time, On the Wings of Freedom is about the transformation of the city. The city is a place where people can continuously be inspired, not only culturally but also socially; a place for ongoing change and progress. The joyous flapping creatures in the Wertheimpark are not just a source of beauty and enjoyment, but also a request: keep the change coming. It’s what Amsterdam is all about. It’s been said that a butterfly can cause a storm. Leave it to these butterflies to cause a hurricane of light and creativity.
