Wesele / Wedding at UCL Festival of Culture

Date: 07-06-2019 Hour: 19:30

Event place: London

Wesele / Wedding is part of #UCLFestivalOfCulture and Be Bold. Be Heard. season at Rich Mix London, supported by Arts Council England, Polish Cultural Institute and UCL SSEES #GrandChallenge.

You’re invited to the last wedding before the borders close!
Welcome to the last Polish/English Wesele/Wedding before the borders close, where you, the audience, play the role of the wedding guests, led by a charismatic Mistress of Ceremonies.

Restrictions on mixed marriages will be implemented, but until then it’s keep calm and party on!

Wesele / Wedding is a participatory one-woman show, made in the European tradition of absurdist political comedy. This collage of integration stories, raunchy wedding rituals and disco polo sing-along, peppered with Polish and Esperanto, interrogates the role of traditional values, family bonds and whether popular culture can bring us together.

Written and performed by Margot Przymierska and developed with and directed by Patrizia Paolini. Produced by Martha Rumney.

Witajcie na ostatnim polsko brytyjskim weselu przed zamknięciem granic, z udziałem publiczności w roli gości weselnych i pod batutą profesjonalnej wodzirejki. Zanim wejdą w życie restrykcje odnośnie zawierania małżeństw mieszanych bawimy się na całego!

Wesele/ Wedding to show, w którym tradycyjne przyśpiewki, tańce i gry weselne, przeplatają sięz anegdotami ze współczesnego życia emigracyjnego i refleksjami na temat roli tradycji w kształtowaniu tego, kim dziś jesteśmy.

Przy kieliszku słodkiej wódki dla każdego z gości, spróbujemy odpowiedzieć na pytanie, czy Polki wolą Anglików i czy disco polo pokona Brexit?

Show inspirowane dramatem Wyspiańskiego grane jest po angielsku i polsku, z akcentami międzynarodowego języka Esperanto.

A FRESH ANGLE ON THE THE POPULAR TOPIC OF BREXIT AND A CHARISMATIC PERFORMANCE FROM MARGOT PRZYMIERSKA- A YOUNGER THEATRE

PLUS SEMINAR TALK:

European identity after BREXIT – from the perspective of university students.

6.30– 7.20PM

How has BREXIT impacted our perception of Europeaness? How are the stereotypical portrayals of the European experience in the UK’s mainstream media impacting our lives? To what extent are stereotypes promulgated about European traditions, religions, cultural and gender specificities and family values shaping (or distorting) our identity? Can popular culture or art help in the creation of a shared European future? These are the questions to whom we will be searching for answers with our audience and panel of European university students from University College London (UCL).

Organised as part of UCL’s 2019 Festival of Culture, this panel discussion will set the context for ‘Wesele/ Wedding’.

UCL Festival of Culture (co-organised by UCL SSEES) is a five-day-long festival (3-7 June 2019) features a packed programme of exclusive appearances, talks, debates, workshops, live performance, walking tours, film screenings and exhibitions, showcasing the world-class research being carried out by staff and students from across the arts, humanities, social sciences and education https://www.ucl.ac.uk/festival-of-culture/
