The 11th "Schaeffer's Era" Festival will take place on 24 October 2019 at 8 p.m. in the Artistic Pool (Basen Artystyczny) in Warsaw (6 M. Konopnicka St.).
The "Schaeffer's Era" Festival is a cyclical event that combines music, theater and dance and promotes the rich creative output of the Polish contemporary composer, music theoretician, playwright, philosopher and graphic artist Bogusław Schaeffer. The Festival takes place in the autumn season in Warsaw, regularly since 2009. It is a multimedia and audiovisual event inspired by sound, word, movement, and image, which uses a collage technique.
11th "Schaeffer's Era" combines presentation of works by Bogusław Schaeffer with the celebration of his 90th birthday. The professor died less than a month after his 90th birthday, so this year's Festival will also be a symbolic farewell to the Master. A multimedia spectacle The Eternal Carousel directed by Maciej Sobociński combines performances by Polish and foreign stage artists with a display of Schaeffer's graphic works as well as fragments of his musical works in the interpretation and arrangement of young Polish musicians. Among hte performers there will be actors Lidia Bogaczówna, Izabela Warykiewicz, Sean Palmer, Marcel Wiercichowski, accordionist and composer Marcin Wyrostek with the band Corazone, singer Janusz Radek, rapper Andy Ninvalle, violinist and composer Patryk Zakrocki, pianist Maciej Piszek and composer and pianist Andrzej Karałow.
