- Krzysztof Chodkiewicz
- Reading, amongst others

- About the text
- The tragedy of Phaedra, Hippolytus, and Theseus – most fully utilizing the spoils of civilization – is the possibility of denying their own biological makeup.
- Not growing up and staying young. Stuck in a stage of development. The effects are grotesque and tragic. Especially in the case of Fedra, who is the only one trying to make her own choices in a world where values have become contractual. But when she tries to lead her life in the way she desires, she is rejected by it – there is no intimacy between souls, only between bodies, bodies which in this case are incompatible. Fedra failed as a woman – she did not succeed as a mother or as a wife. The world of masculine values places her outside the circle of social utility, and menopause ends her last role – as a concubine. Left in this void, she discovers a kind of freedom.

Movement in the city, natural movement
- Get to know your body’s possibilities
- free admission
- no prior registration required
- gathering in the parkour zone at City Garden Jazdów
- How to take the first step to put your body into motion? Or maybe this step should be taken with your hands, hanging on a rail, or jumping like an animal? In the parkour zone, you will have the opportunity to meet those who are passionate fans of various forms of movement, breath, flexibility as well as joviality. They will explain why this activity can contribute to the comprehensive development of the body.
- Conducted by
- The Parkour United Association
- Sports Show Day
- What do we see when we look at the players of football, tennis, volleyball or basketball playing? What are we hearing whilst watching a car race? What do we infer from stadiums and bleachers, and what about the costumes of swimmers? What is the essence of a sports show? We tried to answer these questions in "Kultura Współczesna” (“Contemporary Culture") in the issue titled Kulturowe przedstawienia sportu (Cultural Sports Performances) (1/2017).
- Sports Show Day
- 2:00 p.m.
Performative Sports Walk
- Gathering on the terrace of the castle (from the Vistula River side)
- We want to tell and show you what we have written. However, for the word to become action, we invite you to take part in this performative walk. We will visit points stretched between Jazdów and the legendary Skry Stadium, and together we will experience how much of Warsaw is actually filled with sports, even if Warsaw’s sports infrastructure is a bit corroded. We will admire the romantic ruins of the dried pools, wade through the thicket, revive forgotten sports fields, look down from the top, up from the bottom, and from the inside. We will reflect on the essence of a sports show, and in the meantime, by being in constant motion, we will “perform” ourselves to each other.
- [5:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. break, perfect chance to take advantage of the attractions of City Garden Jazdów Sporty, e.g. to rest on the hammocks or to purchase publications of the National Centre for Cultural (Narodowe Centrum Kultury), including "Contemporary Culture"]
- 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
All the goals kicked into the German's goal – silent match
- The grand finale of the day will be a silent match. If you have ever dreamt that your flanking maneuvers, one-two dribbles and unrelenting assaults on the enemy goal would be narrated by an agitated commentator – now we will fulfill your dream. As during silent disco, in which participants dance to music that they hear only on their headphones, we will run out onto the pitch to shoot the legendary – having been anticipated for so long – goals against the German team (it is July 15th – Grunwald!). In front of fans and in our own imagination, we will score epic goals into the very top corners. Everything to be commented by Jarek Kaczmarek, storyteller, football expert, author of books on the most famous goals of all time.
- 10:00 p.m.
- in the park outside the Ujazdowski Castle, in case of bad weather - in the Cinema in the Castle
- Admission is free
Zidane, A 21st Century Portrait
- [Zidane, un portrait du 21ème siècle], directed by Douglas Gordon, Philippe Parreno, France/ Iceland 2006, 90'
- A blockbuster from the art world. This feature film of well-known artists is, simply, a record of a football match; but it is also an artistic super-production – high-quality cameras follow for 90 minutes only one player, Zinedine Zidane, one of the best players in history. The title reveals the creators’ great ambitions – to make Zizu a metaphorical figure of the beginning century. The successful deconstruction of football, combined with a Frenchman's charisma, watched unusually closely by spectators, helps the artists win, just like Real Madrid in the filmed match.
