Power of dreams!
/9 — 27 November 2007/
Autumn. November. In this hard for Poles — as Stanisław Wyspiański said — time of the year we invite you to Ars Cameralis Festival. As usual, the event will take place in many Silesian cities. This years’ theme seems to be quite easy to undertake. In various artistic forms we want to show the variety of DREAM. It may seem a simple task. Everyone experienced, that life is a dream. However, from the other hand, there aren’t many topics which would fill so many library shelves. There aren’t many topics which would inspire so many artists.
That’s why, as festival organizers, we had to create a subjective dream interpretations. ⅩⅥ edition of Ars Cameralis Festival is a number of various musical, literary, visual and theatrical events. A concert of an extraordinary performer from Britton will inaugurate this year’s edition. This charizmatic vocalist — Denez Prigent was the first one who dared to combine traditional folk music with modern electronics. Eccentrically slurring all musical borders, he combines liturgical songs, traditional britton Gwerz’ forms with jazz, electronics and trip-hop. This is an invitation to a fascinating journey to many cultures and long forgotten places. Because, this year’s edition of Ars Cameralis Festival will be a sequance of colorful, magical and never-ending dreams about art.
