This musical based on SIKSA’s „Stabat Mater Dolorosa“ is a performative dream of making a movie come true, where both the dream and the movie are like chewing gum that has been tasteless for too long. A nostalgic invitation to a dancing story about a girl returning to her childhood, when she dressed up as different women using her mother’s wardrobe, and all the roles she played were to please herself. This film is a tool for reconstructing the scenes from the youth, as well as a baroque farewell to all the glitter and unicorns. Stabat Mater Dolorosa is like a bayonet slashing through modern times. She gives us micro-performances with all her body, and at her own risk. SIKSA’s music is the scenario rejected, grinded, spat out, negated and intensified by the characters. Piotr Macha’s camera is one of the murder weapons that SIKSA would like to use to fuck up the modern reality. It’s a language of art that SIKSA has been using almost unnoticed since 2014. A gun, a girl and death – those are the times we live in.
Siksa (Alex Freiheit: voc/lyrics and Piotr Buratyński: bass guitar) is the most divisive Polish artist in recent memory, whose radical and brutally honest performances are smashing the patriarchy one gig at a time. Coming from punk, literary and theatre backgrounds, her shows dissect the Polish consciousness. To quote her own words, she’s a girl on a mission.
Siksa is the last representative of the future choreographic punk style revolution. Tender-free rebellion on order. Clickbait controversy. Two-headed artiste, dead-serious with square bass figures. Unqualified NOISE-FITNESS instructor, divides her training in three parts: endurance, strength and combined. The „aerobic freiheit five” developed by her is based on conditions of instability and imbalance and is not adjusted to the individual needs of the participants. The worst publicity for Gniezno since the Baptism of Poland in Magdeburg in 966. For the Czechs she wants to be what Ewa Farna is for the Poles. Former superheroine.
