Shared History

St. John's Centre, 19-06-2017 - 20-06-2017

For centuries Gdańsk has owed its development and beauty to many foreigners arriving from faraway regions: the Netherlands, Germany, Scotland, France and other places. They were representatives of various religions: Catholicism, Protestantism, Judaism… Today might be called immigrants or refugees. They settled here, using their talents and abilities in the service of the city. Hundreds of these “single narratives” of newcomers and long-established residents of Gdańsk have blended together to form a unique architectural and intellectual structure of the city. Following the ravages of World War II, new residents arrived from various regions of Poland – also those just torn away from the Polish territory. These new arrivals largely built the city from scratch.  more

First performance of “The Passion” by Rafał Kłoczko

St John’s Centre, 05-03-2016

First performance of “The Passion” by Rafał Kłoczko The composition, the libretto for which was written by Maja Baczyńska, is an attempt to look at the Passion from the perspective of the people who found themselves by Jesus' side in His last way. The principal character is the Mother, whose love and suffering are the most intense, although the disciples are also noteworthy. Peter's dilemmas, John's deep faith and the tragic character of Judas are vividly depicted using word and sound. The lyrical language enriched with poems by Rev. Jan Twardowski makes the listeners to reflect on the sense of suffering and enables them to identify with different attitudes that can be taken by a mere helpless observer of the events leading up to the inevitable death of a loved one. The whole is enhanced by incredible music, emphasising the universal message and leaving a lasting impression on the listener. more
