The idea of 12th Bella Skyway Festival is “Elementary particles of freedom.” The year 2020 is special for Toruń, as it coincides with the 100th anniversary of rebecoming a part of the independent Poland. During the 12th Bella Skyway Festival the gothic city fabric will change into a field of luminous experiments and research. In this year’s events, the artists will pay their attention to the matter of freedom, which seems to be today’s elementary notion. In the 1920s and 1930s, when the first contemporary theories of elementary particles, such as electrons, protons and neutrons were formed, nobody was probably aware of the existence of the other components of matter, such as quarks or taus. Similarly, in 1920, when Toruń was coming back to free Poland, no one was expecting what that freedom could bring. Today, during the 12th Bella Skyway Festival artists will be able to observe this concept. The term, which is an ensurance of the artistic inquiring. Is creativity the only barrier of the artist? Is achieving the impossible an act of liberating one and others from the limits? When does the freedom of one become the enslavement of others? Does “being able to” mean being free? Is freedom without the lines even possible? We will search for the answers to these questions in the year of the 100th anniversary of the return of Toruń to independent Poland.
