we are FESTIVALT
FestivALT is an independent arts collective that produces an annual program of critically minded Jewish art and activism in Kraków, Poland. Blending visual art, theatre, site-specific performance, activist intervention, and community conversation, FestivALT engages with the most vital issues in contemporary Jewish Poland.
“Still standing” is a performance that explores the body as a vehicle of memory and site-specific live sculpture. Using movement, choreography and storytelling it is aimed at encouraging empathy and care as possible attitudes towards what’s left by history – which directs us not only towards the past but also towards the present and the future.
