The seventh week was the last week before the micro-event in two villages around Goleniow, where the theatre is based. We transformed an old building in a beautiful exposition and concert place.
The name of the festival Brama organized was “traycia od/nova”, which mean old and new traditions but also has the concept of “revival”. We had been working on this festival since I begin my entrepreneur in february. All the final details could not be fixed without the help of the local community with whom we create a bond relation since the beginning: a group of old women doing craftwork, a group of theatre composed of some teachers of the school and a group of teenagers with whom I create a tribe, called the Blue Brami Tribe. It was magic to see how it ends up, in the first village, to be a real festival and all the village, finally, wished to continue to collaborate with us again next year.
Since the beginning of the process, the second village, Kliniska, had a lot of “anti” for any initiatives. In the final we had two nice days but with some minimal involvement of local communities. The advantage of being a community theatre , is that we are able to compose a parade of 40 people with musicians and performed generously. But there was nobody there to look at us, just people from the first village that did enjoy so much our presence and came to the other village.

We also performed in a festival, Topoff in Tychy, the show Ghost Dance. It was a contest but we unfortunately did not win. We did also a promotional movie for the city, dressed as 1920 tizz. This was really funny.
