About the group

our history

ArtCrew group was set up in 2008 in Youth Special Educational Centre in Trzebież close to Szczecin. The founders are Marcin Głuszyk, a teacher and a tutor in Special Youth Educational Centre in Trzebież and Konrad Pachciarek, a theatre director. Currently, the group is also being led by animators and some of them are former members of ArtCrew.

SHOW MORE

During systematic classes members of the group develop their artistic skills and talents and prepare various artistic presentations of narrative character. It is a specific attempt to tell others about some parts of the reality in which they live as well as about their experiences, emotions and way of perceiving themselves.

Youth’s involvement in all the activities of ArtCrew gives its members a great opportunity to develop comprehensively and for those who can see their work or performances it is a great opportunity to learn about their world.

Memebers of the group change every two years and it is connected with the period of time the boys learn in Special Youth Educational Centre in Trzebież. So rhythm of our work is determined by a school year. We usually create some presentations during the first term, we present them during the second term of the school year and finally, we go to international artistic workshops during summer holidays.

ArtCrew has prepared and organized several performances so far – theatre plays and outdoor performances, musical concerts and video clips. Every year we also prepare and present concerts of carols during Chistmas time. ArtCrew actively takes part in PRZETWORNIK – National Festival of Creativity for youth from special educational centres and youth sociotherapeutic centres.

Spektakl TOK SZOK

Dobry wieczór Państwu! Witam w kolejnym odcinku naszego PROGRAMU. W studio są z nami goście, którzy zmagają się z problemami od lat. Jak żyją ludzie doświadczeni przez los? Jak radzą sobie z otoczeniem i jak odbierają ich inni? Na te pytania postaramy się odpowiedzieć razem z nimi…

Młodzi aktorzy z ArtCrew zabiorą nas w świat przeżyć, których podmiotem- jak w każdym spektaklu grupy ArtCrew – jest CZŁOWIEK. Historia spektaklu toczy się w studiu telewizyjnym, gdzie trwa nagranie programu live. Telewizyjne show potoczy się jednak inaczej, niż zaplanował to prowadzący…

The show ‘From a different story’

When the reality is not like we expect it to be, when somebody very important for us is gone .. We want to run away, transfer ourselves into a different dimension, find a place, where we can get away from everyday life.

Does the escape to the world of fairytales and dreams make us heppy? Is it possible to stay there for long? Is it a right place for us? Maybe it is just an illusion, a figment of imagination and something really important and real is waiting just beside us?

Film – ‘Father0’

Absent and unknown fathers. Boys who run away from a nightmare of their childhood and become fathers themselves. This is a story about dreams that come true and dreams that can kill. The film shows different aspects of growing into the most important roles in life.
A cinema premiere of the film took place on the Father’s Day in 2015. The film was shown several dozen times, including national festivals, projections for youth and students and also in some institutions like Special Educational Centres and Rehabilitation Centres for youth. During making a film a clip to the song ‘Nieobecny nieznajomy’ of Luxtorpeda was created. The presentations of the film took place in the summer 2016 during a famous Youth Festival in Jarocin, the International Youth Day in Krakow and 22nd Woodstock Festival within Beautiful Art Academy..

Theatre performance – ‘Father0’

– Rudy, do you know what connects a fatther with a son?
– No.
– No?
– No. And I don’t give a shit about it!

A meeting which has never happened. A letter which brings death instead of hope. A dream which becomes a nightmare. This is a film about different relationships between young boys and their fathers – absent, unknown. They try to face the problem, some of them try to grow into their role to be a father themselves, a role they are not prepared to take at all. What will the future bring them?

Theatre performance – ‘Mateyko’

„You can have nothing, live in an ordinary place and go nowhere. You can speak a language almost nobody understands. You can be passed over or damned, but there is power that always makes you live.”

Friends from a neighbourhood, passionate about graffiti, have been meeting regularly at one of the benches for years. But one of them, Mateyko – the most talented, hasn’t hasn’t been seen for two months. What has happened to him? Will his friends be able to help him?

Theatre performance – ‘rozMOWy’

‘She asked me why I always sit on the dirty staircase
when the world is so beautiful.
And I’ve already known at that time that I love her.
Because nobody else has never noticed me and talked to me so beautifully.’

Playing truant, fights, thefts. Hurting others as well as themselves. This is what we often associate with boys and girls from special educational centres. What do they think about their life themselves? They tell us about that on the stage.

‘rozMOWy” is the first theatre performance of ArtCrew. The script was created during discussions about life among members of the group. They told the director their stories, everything they wanted to share with other people about their lives and then, the director put all of them together, making a great effort to keep the most of a specific language, energy and sensitivity of those young people.

We create music

The band is an important part of our work. From the very beginning, members of the Artcrew create their own songs, write lyrics and give concerts, telling others about themselves through music.

Singing carols

A concert of carols is an anual event held by Artcrew. Every year the group prepares this concert carefully, inviting other youth groups from Poland and other countries.

One of the most special concerts of carols took place in January 2017. We invited a group from Special Educational Centre for disabled youth in Police and also a group from Beautiful Arts School in Lithuania. The concert was filmed and you can listen to some parts of it here:
