This year, Malta Festival Poznań opens with a colourful theatrical parade celebrating the joy of meeting each other, of respect and freedom. We will see, among other things, five-metre-tall objects, Pegasi, a flaming giraffe and enormous theatrical installations. The art and music show is dedicated to the memory of professor Jarosław Maszewski. The charismatic teacher, Professor of the Academy of Fine Arts, brought together communities and worked for the benefit of the city. We owe him the tradition of theatricalised parades on the name day of St. Peter and St. Paul, the patron saints of Poznań. Jarosław Maszewski’s field of activity was urban space, which he shaped to stage artistic activities. His happenings, performance art, shows and parades in the streets fired up the staid spaces of Poznań, enlivening and casting a spell on the city. An arranger of exhibitions, an organiser, artist and teacher, Jarosław Maszewski inspired a whole generation of students. Teatr Asocjacja 2006, a group of artists who were directly associated with Professor Maszewski, cultivate his philosophy and methods to this day.

The second event dedicated to the memory of Jarosław Maszewski is a concert by Hanna Banaszak, which will take place after the The Power of Patina performance.
