Gdańsk, 22-25.10.2020

NEO ARTE Synthesizer of Arts is an international festival presenting the most interesting trends in contemporary music and art.


NeoArte – Synthesizer of Arts exists to inspire, support creativity, positively influence people and improve their quality of life through participation in a cultural event. It works as a platform connecting artists from various cultural backgrounds and realms of art. Our festival is an intriguing event enhancing personal experience of music and art, stimulating new areas of human mind and enriching our perspective on the surrounding world. NeoQuartet, Polish string quartet from Gdańsk, is the initiator and originator of the festival and also the prizewinner of prestigious Pomeranian Artistic Award 2019. NeoArte Festival’s idea focuses on the synthesis of arts following a trend observed among artists around the world. In contemporary landscape, the edges between different arts are getting more and more figurative. Composers write pieces merging video-art and theater, visual artists construct sound installations, theater and dance companies are involved in performative art. It is harder to distinguish/set the limits between arts, yet is it easier to come up with their connections and common grounds. NeoArte Association is the organizer of the festival.


During seven days of events, the audience of the 10th jubilee edition of the festival will be able to participate in ten concerts, two artistic installations and several performances. Composition students will have the opportunity to take part in composition workshops held by Trond Reinholdtsen – this-year festival’s Patron and Composer-in-Residence, and in individual reading sessions workshops held by NeoQuartet. Children and teenagers will be able to participate in theater and music classes conducted by actress and director Agnieszka Płoszajska.


Each of the concerts is planned as a multidisciplinary performance, during most of them the audience will be part of the artistic process. The performers include both leading foreign artists (Trond Reinholdtsen, Moscow Contemporary Music Ensemble, Electric Primitivo, Jennifer Torence, Vocal Group Putni), as well as the most outstanding Polish ensembles and soloists (Orkiestra Muzyki Nowej, Piotr Sałajczyk, Miłosz Pękala, Martyna Zakrzewska, Bartłomiej Sutt) ). A performative installation by Marek Rogulski and an all-night concert-happening designed by Stefan Wesołowski will be created especially for the festival.


The hosts of the festival, the NeoQuartet, will perform several times, presenting, among others, the cult work of Black Angels by Georg Crumb and the premiere of the Modern Multicultural Quartet project. We will hear dozens of compositions written by composers from around the world, and nine of them will have their premiere at the festival. The end of the event and its final concert are the 15th anniversary of NeoQuartet and a joint concert with Małgorzata Walentynowicz, Marsija, Michał Jacaszek and Emil Miszk.

„Trójmiejscy artyści z NeoQuartetu nie „parskają na współczesność”. Przeciwnie – od lat prezentują publiczności wszelkie repertuarowe nowinki. Aby zwiększyć siłę rażenia, zainicjowali Festiwal Neo Arte, podczas którego, wspólnie z zapraszanymi gośćmi, prezentują wytwory sztuki najnowszej.”
