The Closing of Ars Independent Festival 2016

Ars Independent 2016 is finishing. Who will become this year’s Black Horses? On Sunday 02.10, 8 p.m. at the Rialto Cinema Theatre we will learn the names of the winners of this year’s festival. Remember that this year, it was you, our audience, who decided the Black Horses of film, animation, video games and music videos. After the award ceremony, we would like to invite you to the unique audio-visual spectacle Kopyta Zła!

To outspin this year’s Ars Independent, the Horse will speak with its own voice. Through song and dance, with a musical entourage and in the thick air of absurdity it will speak its mind and heart. Live on stage. “Kopyta zła” (The Hooves of Evil) by Joanna Szumacher and Paweł Cieślak is a project on the border of a musical and a radio play, based on Edgar Allan Poe’s novel “Metzengerstein”. Incisive lyrics, electronic music and dance serve as components of the tale of Ferdinand and his evil-breathing horse.

Entry to the Festival Closing is granted by festival passes and acreditations. In addition, tickets are available at Rialto and, at the price of 10 PLN.

After the concert, we invite all our festivalgoers for a music and dance party at the festival club A Door Called Horse (Warszawska 37, Katowice) at 10 p.m. Entry to the after party is free.

On October 2nd Festival Office and interacitve exhibitions in Katowice City of Gardens will be open only until 5 p.m.
