A unique event in a unique place – this will be the December edition of Public
House in MeetFactory. Get blown away by our program representing all dramaturgy
lines: get a drink at the bar and indulge in two exhibition openings, open theatre rehearsal, five concerts, and Open Studios of our
residents to top it up. There is two more openings: MeetF Academy invites to taste new artistic school and Beauty Free Shop will show unique artworks.
MeetFactory Gallery will open the exhibition Who Is Playing? which looks at the hidden action of emotions in the world of sports. It will feature works of world-renowned artists as Olaf Breuning (CH), Zuzanna Janin (PL), Pawel Kruk (USA), Anika Larsson (SWE), Jean-Erick Désert (Haiti), Shaun Leonardo (USA), Anetta Mona Chişa & Lucia Tkáčová (SK) and Assa Kauppi (SWE). Kostka Gallery will open the exhibition Inner than the Bones of our artist-in-residence Axel Gouala (FR). He got inspired by bones which he sees as fundamental architecture of the human body and reminder of our existence even after we’re long gone.
The theater dramaturgy will open a rehearsal of the upcoming production Tsunami Blues. Visitors will be encouraged to learn how this theatrical piece looks like 12 days before its premiere (22. 12.), how actors Tereza Dočkalová, Eva Salzmannová, Tomáš Dianiška, Richard Němec a Lenka Zahradnická work on their characters under the guidance of director Ewa Zembok.
The music program will connect the Czechs with the most progressive Norway electronic scene. A performative installation as well as five extraordinary music projects will be presented as a part of the SYNAPSE project initiated by Insomnia Festival in Tromsø, Norway and MeetFactory and funded by EHP 2009-2014.
The small listening room will claim a modular performative installation by Norwegian musician Lars Holdhus (releasing under TCF moniker) and Czech artist Martin Kohout (Jindřich Chalupecký award nominee), created out of ceramics, tea and 4-channel sound.
The main music venue will feature shows of Mikuláš Odehnal a.k.a.Lišaj (CZ) with his experimental, ethereal rap built on creeping, slow beats and vocal digging through the walls of heavy sound, Demdike Stare (UK) who mix strange recordings to an impressively strange forms, Paranoid London (UK) with its unpredictable energy acid house, Sherwood & Pinch (UK) which destroys dance floors around the world by its futuristic version of dub’n’bass and the Czech club legend Yukimura (CZ) with his original mix of dub, afrobeat, funk and jazz music.
To mark the end of the Critical Studio programme UK artist Naomi Fitzsimmons invites audiences to attend a special presentation of the performative work ‘Multiple Choice’ exhibited at MeetFactory at the end of September. The piece comprised of a journey devised by the artist, which allowed a select 20 audience members to participate in. At ‘How did it perform?’ audiences will be presented with insights and documentation from this exclusive trip as well as a Q&A with the Multiple Choice team.
