On 9-11 January 2019 (7 pm), Nowy Teatr in Warsaw together with the Art Stations Foundation will host the premiere presentations of Paweł Sakowicz’s Masakra [Massacre]. The performance will be presented as part of the choreographic cycle Expanding the Field, and its premiere will be preceded with a lecture by the curator of the cycle, Joanna Leśnierowska, titled Jak zobaczyć taniec. Ćwiczenia w patrzeniu [How to See Dance: Exercises in Looking]. The lecture will be held on 8 January 2019 [7 pm] at Nowy Teatr in Warsaw. Masakra is Sakowicz’s fifth original piece.


About the show: In 1937, the Polish government sent an expedition to Madagascar to explore the possibilities of colonising the island. The expedition was supported by the Maritime and Colonial League, closely linked to the Polish authorities, and promoted the slogan: “like every free nation, Poland deserves to have its own colonies”. However, Madagascar never became a Polish colony.
