A GOOD DAY IN POZNAŃ

The 17th of November 2017 was a good sunny autumn day and above all - a day of cultural experience, which IB1 and IB2 students spent with their Polish teacher, Ms Renata Otolińska, in Poznań. The industrial and very modern Stary Browar (Old Brewery House), which was the starting point for the city walking tour, stood in contrast to Centrum Kultury Zamek, where students saw the unique exhibition „Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. The Polish context”. It was actually an art lesson conducted by a guide fascinated with the Mexican artist's paintings, who revealed before students the meaning of various symbols and contexts, important while interpreting Kahlo's works. In the afternoon, there came time for theatre experience. At Teatr Nowy, the students saw „Iwona księżniczka Burgunda” ("Ivona, Princess of Burgundia") by Witold Gombrowicz, directed by Magdalena Miklasz. The staging of the play in which the plot got doubled by means of using the theatre stage on one hand and screens as well as elements of a TV studio on the other, went too far from the message of Gombrowicz, which could be seen, for instance, in skipping the epilogue, so meaningful for interpreting the main idea of the drama. Nonetheless, students appreciated the acting and humour of the play. Perhaps another staging of "Iwona...", the one at Teatr Dramatyczny in Wałbrzych, will allow them to fully review the performance they saw in Poznań? It was, anyway, the Kahlo's exhibition that turned out the major highlight of the cultural trip to Poznań, as a truly memorable and in-depth experience.
