Shakespeare   Excerpts from the script Happy New Day (excerpts) It is not our fault that it is so and not otherwise. We are not responsible for the mess in our minds. I know that it's THEM. I tell you, they are everywhere, they eavesdrop, make notes, take pictures, denounce, put sticks into our ears and think they will make kites out of us. Today everyone fucks as they can. You only need to believe, that they will miss your ass. You need to do everything not to let them reach your ass. And if they would, you need to be prepared for that. [...] ~~~~~~~~~~~~ He used to take me to the water and teach how to swim. We rode there by a red tandem. A disguisting plastic bag filled with peeled, salty, cut lenghtwise, fragrant green cucumbers was hitting my legs. It was old. The bag. With orange and white stripes. A broken handle, tied in a bow was cutting my hand. He told me that the Earth is round and there is nothing straight there. One Easter he unscrewed the Christ figure from the cross and explained me that he was going to save him. I bought him an alarm clock-rooster in front of the railway station in Wroclaw for fifteen thousands of old zlotys. [...] ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Emptiness. And just a moment ago it seemed that you finally understood... What a surprise...Emptiness...Unfortunately, it never rains but it pours. Emptiness is filled with disappointment, disappointment fans anger. Hence, so much brutality in the streets, and so little parking space. Leaflets litter the planet, methane still kills, people scream at each other in the shops, teenagers run away from home, the greenhouse effect threatens the human species, nations unite under the banner of the common nuclear policy, pandemic flu yesterday, psychosomatic existential shit tomorrow and on April 13, 2013 at 13.13 p.m. there will be another end of the world. [...] Musical motives Scene 2   Relaxation music motive enters - as the background to the off. This motive will be repeated in similar scenes (quasi-relaxing). OFF Close your eyes now. Take a deep breath. Imagine that you have a piece of white paper in front of you. Breathe deeply. Do not clench your eyelids so tightly. Let your imagination create your inner self-portrait. Do it now because when you get home, you will have no time. And time is not by your side. Breathe regularly. I can feel your energy. It's good you are so involved. Don't stop this inner exploration. And since you do it so beautifully, I will sing you a song. A song is good for everything. [...] ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Scene 5 This is a scene referirng to the experiences of the character, a type of retrospection, very close to me. There are another two such moments throughout the spectacle. I'd like to have supporting music to introduce the mood. Not for the whole scene , but for about 1.30 sec. OFF I suddenly felt the smell of "Menthols" going away from me. She probably still had wet hair. I imagined her running down the stairs in a hurry, holding a green handrail the guys from the 14 often spat on. She is wearing that fur coat without an upper red button and this moss-grown shawl- the birthday present from her father. I heard the slam of the staircase door.I raised my head and looked at the alarm-clock. The alarm-clock rooster. We bougth it with my father opposite the railway station in Wroclaw for 15 thousands zlotys. It was 4.45. December 12. It was snowing outside the window. I dressed up, put on the only gloves I had (I hated them because they bit me) and run from the house. Guys from 14 did not have time to spit the handrail. It seemed to me that  I did it quickly. But she was no longer on the street. Such a silence instead. Her footprints in fresh snow. I follow them. Then I run.I'm  trying to stick to her steps. I can't. I'm only nine and I have too short legs. But I try. Sometimes I manage to do that. I stop by a bigger trace in the snow. She probably fell. [...] ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Scene 7 And here a big puzzle because this is a scene about how I was struck by an arrow in the ass and I'm trying to remove it using different tools. I thought about very agressive, rythmical music something like... I don't know why but while writing this I think of the 'Twin Peaks' movie theme? But think of something in counterpoint to the slow movements of struggling with the arrow. About 2 min. [...] ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Scene 16 Offstage music. It must be cosmic, spacious. This scene is positive. OFF At the moment of launch, blockbusters explode and our bowels twist into a gut. At the same time we can feel a slight overload of fear. Heart begins to beat faster, we hear the tinnitus. Overloading presses us to the seats. After a while we exceed the speed of sound. Our bodies are very, very heavy. We can't even raise a hand or an eyelid, because we have closed our eyes in fear. After eight minutes,the feeling of fear disappears completely. It's a sign that we went into the orbit. Regular physical exercises are very important in weightlessness. Doctors recommend at least 15 minutes a day. However, sexual abstinence is definitely recommended too. Remember that the toilet is being monitored and excreting all the stuff you have to fasten yourself to the board or you can be a bit surprised. As far as eating is concerned we have crackers, dehydrated (dried) vegetables and fruit. When we finally reach SENSE, we will be careful when leaving the spacecraft: SENSE is built in fact of extremely hot sand [...]   Painting Agnieszka Kołodyńska Painting Paint in your imagination nicely Not anyhow you like Make your self-portrait honestly I'll believe if you try You're anxious to change You've been nagged with indecision What to cook for a dinner Whery to hide your infirmity Life is testing us severely Sometimes gives us only C There's no time to repeat So leave in good time Make yourself ready for dillemas Which pliers to use To bend and straighten All human failures It's not time to play It's not time to play It's not time to play A Beetle - Total Quartett Agnieszka Kołodyńska A Beetle - Total Quartett Castanets ? Francisco, drums directly from Italy? Benito, balalaika ? Joseph, and tube ? Adolf. Though a beetle thing so small beetle's life bewitches all (Arbeit macht frei) It lives at a brisky pace he feels great in this place (Viva la muerte, viva la muerte) It lives in a cosy way carefully listens what we say. (Arbeit macht frei durch Krematorium Nummer drei! Viva la muerte! Wstawaj na swiatyj boj! Nas nie dogoniat!) Sometimes whispers in the rye makes our ego rise so high. Or throws blue flowers at our feet to show his gesture generous and neat. (Tuto nello stato, imperiato!) Beetle, beetle what you desire, to let me kill you with a cannon fire? This is lesson not to little, get the beetle, win the beetle. I\'ll find such a world Agnieszka Kołodyńska I'll find such a world I'll find such a world where I can be myself. I'll find such a place  where I won't be afraid. I'll give another chance to those who hurt me. I'll believe in dreams again. I'll trust people are nice, there won't be lack of water and bread won't became stale, I won't lost my spirits or choke on my pride, looking for my place will save me from weakness. What shall die today to boost more life? What shall die today though I'm afraid to let it happen? What shall die today? What shall die today? What shall die today? What shall live inside me?   Experimental music Installations Coral music Solo pieces Improvised music Acousmatic music Electronic Music Monoctone Pieces for children Jarek Kordaczuk mp3 Dark Energy Agnieszka Kołodyńska Pantomime Electroacoustic music Vocal-instrumental music Instrumental Music Musical interpretations of fairy tales Compositions Adam Smoczyński Sacred Music EWI ProForma Theatrical music Jan Brzechwa Julian Tuwim Sebastian Wypych Poetic song Sung poetry Jarosław Kordaczuk Arrangements Videoclips Animations Titelituralia Onomatopeic compositions Theatre of Sound A Room Full of Fairy Tales Children's Art Centre Cezary Konrad Krzysztof Herdzin Basia Raduszkiewicz Music for children

I tak, źle czyniąc, siebie porzucimy,
Chcąc być kimś innym, a w zamiarze takim,
Pycha nas czyni nikczemnie zmiennymi,
Gdyż mając wiele, dręczymy się brakiem,
Zwąc to, co mamy, głupstwem lada jakim;
Dobra swe, które rzucamy bezmyślnie,
W nicość zmieniamy, chcąc mnożyć przemyślnie.
~~W. Shakespeare
