LAST: Wacław Niżyński – ostatni taniec i rozpadający się europejski porządek

Borys Jaźnicki LAST, mat. prasowe

In December, the New Art Association (Stowarzyszenie Sztuka Nowa) started a cooperation with a member of our Association, Jungian analyst Bartosz Samitowski, who led a depth psychology workshop for the team preparing the performance “LAST: Wacław Niżyński – the last dance and the decaying European order” (dir. Dawid Żakowski). The workshops, using Jungian psychology methods, aimed to deepen artists’ contact with the symbolic and creative aspect of the unconscious mind and to introduce new inspiration to the creative process. After the workshops and the premiere of the performance, the decision was made to establish permanent cooperation.

LAST is an international interdisciplinary project, performative and choreographic exhibition implemented by an international group of artists combining various fields of art. Dancers, choreographers, performers, composers and video artists from Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Ecuador will create together a complex and multi-level portrait of the most famous dancer of all time.

Meeting with the IAAP

On December 14, 2019, at the headquarters of our Association in the Old Town of Warsaw, the first official meeting between the AJAP and the representatives of IAAP – the International Association of Analytical Psychology took place since we were granted the status of a member group in this organisation at the World Jung Congress in Vienna (August 2019). On behalf of IAAP: president-elect Misser Berg from Denmark and former president Marianne Mueller from Switzerland came to visit. The meeting concerned the present and future development of Jungian psychology in Poland.

The premiere of the Polish translation of the “Red Book” by C. G. Jung

The long-awaited Polish version of C. G. Jung’s “Red Book”, translated by Jerzy Prokopiuk and Jerzy Korpanty was premiered on December 6th this year in “Teatr STU” in Kraków. The meeting was attended by representatives of the publishing house “Vis a Vis Etiuda”, book translators and the management of the theatre, as well as a representative of our Association, Mirosław Giza. It was emphasised that the theatre was not accidentally chosen as the premiere place, because Jung’s concept is also very inspiring for this environment. The discussion also discussed the use of Jung’s method for psychotherapeutic treatment and the possibilities offered by the study and exploration of this unique book. In recognition of our presence at this meeting, our Association received this book with the personal dedication of its co-translator Jerzy Korpanty.
