In search for an artistic stir within our theatre, and as part of an attempt to address the needs of professional, independent stage artists, we decided to launch a curator residency programme. We want to open the Modelatornia, its audience and creators cooperating with the TJK Theatre to new aesthetics, methods of works and unobvious interdisciplinary mixes. To this end, we invite those artists who stay outside the official institutional framework, both from Poland and foreign countries, to take part in our residency programme.
We offer space for unrestricted work, accommodation, technical support, conceptual support, and support in promotion. Each residency ends with a performance open for the audience, which is an opportunity for experimenting residing artists to confront their endeavours with the local audience.

This story has not happened yet. It is long and still in the making. What happens when I meet you – reading these words? And you – a bird that has just sit on your windowsill? And you – your neighbour who smiled at you yesterday? And when you meet me – a person who is writing these words, and me – a dog who has just licked my nose? And me – a man because of whom I was sad yesterday...
‘The Apocalypse’ is a disclosure of what was hidden earlier. We are interested in the apocalypse in its most intimate dimension – where it is understood as exposing oneself to another human being, which is a foundation for any relationship, and as exposing oneself to yourself, and as exposing oneself in any act of expression.
We test the possibilities of practising radical proximity. In the times of pandemic and growing divisions within the society, proximity is a concept that needs to be reconstructed. We are convinced that in order to regain social proximity, each of us must experience a personal apocalypse – expose what is the most intimate, vulnerable, and delicate, and learn how to embrace personal apocalypse of other people.
