Working Songs - Pieśni Pracy (2017)
Theatre/ performance (2016/2017)
For the second time Centrum Amarant's very own community theatre - teatr obywatelski, TO - will go on stage. This time, it will take up a topic that is extremely important and dear to all of us. We will talk about work, or rather sing about it. Inspired by the rhythms and songs of American "working songs", the workshop group will create, sing and dance to their own work songs. What is our job? On what terms and on what contracts do we work? To what extent is work an integral part of our lives? Do we love our job? Have we already "merged" into it and become one? Did we lose ourselves in it? Or are we rather its slaves? Our actions are an attempt to find a common voice, in other words: solidarity among us, working people.

Żyć po to, aby pracować.
A jak nie, to co?
zginiesz marnie zginiesz marnie zginiesz marnie
Ale ja chcę żyć!Jak żyć?
To live in order to work
deadline, deadline, deadline,
already today, if not, then what?
you'll die poorly, you'll die poorly, you'll die poorly
but I want to live!
how to live?
