Jan Peszek for the evening. “Double Solo” consists of the legendary “Script for the non-existent yet probable instrumental actor Bogusław Schaeffer,” performed for the past 38 years, and a premiere of a new solo act “Dośpiewanie. Autobiography,” an attempt of the mature artist to address passages of his own biography, which shape the life choices and path followed by the independent artist outside his conscious mind. Jan Peszek delivers those passages against the backdrop of Glenn Gould’s interpretation of Jan Sebastian Bach’s “Goldberg Variations,” thus realizing and developing Gould’s ideal of a listener-creator, one co-creating an artwork while consuming it.
The show has been created under the honorary patronage of the Minister of Culture and National Heritage Bogdan Zdrojewski.
