From April 4 to May 30 2011, in the Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle, in Warsaw, the portuguese group DEMO will develop an innovative research with the artistic-sociological project Russian Roulette.

Using the game’s characteristics of randomness and rotation, DEMO intends to create a brand new methodology in order to explore another, and also new, concept of collective theatre creation and staging.

The project provides direct access, via web, to the whole creative process, giving all those interested a voyeuristic opportunity to inspect all the russian roulette games, the activities’ daily development, and the whole process of creation until, and including, the final show.

About the CCA
The Centre for Contemporary Art is a place for the creation and documentation of art in all its forms. The Centre achieves its goals through exhibitions, performances, presentations of visual theatre, concerts of contemporary music, showings of experimental films, video art, shows and creative workshops, as well as various interdisciplinary events.

About the AIR LAB
The mission of a-i-r laboratory is to support the mobility of Polish as well as international artists.

Our team of five carries out artistic residency programme tasks on two levels. First of all through a curatorial residency programme: we invite foreign artists to participate in the programme so that they can realise their own artistic projects. They use the residency to study a new setting, reflect on their practice, experiment.

Artistic residencies fulfil a different function with respect to the artist’s work than the art market or exhibition venues – and this form of working with artists interests us greatly, requiring critical reflection as well as good organisation. That is why we run research project and promote the idea of artistic residencies in Poland and Eastern Europe.

This programme is co-finanaced by the City of Warsaw in the frames of the competition for the title European Capital of Culture 2016.
