Marta Górnicka Konstytucja (Constitution)

Social

THE C.O.N.S.T.I.T.U.T.I.O.N.
FOR A CHOIR OF POLES

WHY THE CONSTITUTION?

Because it concerns all of us, even though we may have completely different opinions about it.
Because today we are constantly referring to it – to defend it, to demand its change, to violate it, or to protect it.
Because it is our pride. And our shame.
Because it is our FUNDAMENTAL LAW.
Who will be reading it?
A CHOIR OF POLES.
NOWY TEATR ACTORS, LEGIA FOOTBALL FANS, VIETNAMESE, CHOIR OF WOMEN, THE STRZELEC GUN ASSOCIATION, JEWISH WOMEN, CHILDREN, TEATR 21 ACTORS, MUSLIMS, REFUGEES, PENSIONERS

We do not intend to show that we can sing in unison. We will create a choir which will speak with a variety of voices. A choir of different registers, a cacophonic choir.

Join us!
ANYONE can help read the Constitution.

Warsaw, 10 April 2016

Dear Society,
How are you? How are you doing? We are asking because your life has recently accelerated a great deal. A lot has been going about you. As you know, in theatre we often address you and talk about you a lot. And even we speak on your behalf. A lot of words have been revolving around you with an ever greater velocity, load and striking distance. The Polish-Polish war with words, so they say.
HOMELAND, TRUTH, NATION, CITIZEN, ENEMY, PATRIOT, TRAITOR, EVERYONE. Polemicists stand on opposite sides and shoot because you cannot talk with ammunition.
Whose "Polish values" are Mine? or Yours? What is taking freedom away from us? Is there any US?
We want to ask you about it, Society. We want to ask about it in the theatre.
So this time WE ARE INVITING YOU onstage to read the Constitution.

CHOIR OF POLES:
(solo)
The Republic of Poland is a commonwealth (CHOIR) of ALL citizens.
The Republic of Poland is a commonwealth (CHOIR) of ALL citizens.
EVERYONE shall respect the freedoms and rights of (solo) OTHER (solo) OTHER (solo) OTHER (solo) OTHER OTHER OTHER OTHER OTHER. OTHER OTHER OTHER OTHER. OTHER OTHER OTHER OTHER. OTHER OTHER OTHER OTHER. OTHER OTHER OTHER OTHER. OTHER OTHER OTHER OTHER. OTHER OTHER OTHER OTHER ....

The colours of the Republic of Poland are white and red
-WHITE
-RED
-WHITE
-RED
-WHITE
-RED
WHITE! RED! INVINCIBLE! COLOURS! - somebody in the CHOIR sings in an operatic fashion and somebody a football fan fashion.

What do you think, Society? Fun, huh? Words are there to be spoken .
Will you drop by? Let's talk.
And if you do not want Homeland? Then add some spice and eat it;)
