Languages of publication
The article discusses the process of staging the ethnoperformance of a wedding ceremony in Dynów Foothill (East South of Poland). The project was attended by residents of nearby villages, social researchers and theatre and film makers. Qualitative research was carried out with the use of participatory methods: both the research tool and data collection were done with the help of the residents. The screenplay of the ethnoperformance was built in a similar way. The project had both cognitive and entertainment purposes. The main idea was to create a bridge between tradition and modernity, embedding the artistic presentation into the concrete collective memory and local knowledge. We also wanted to strengthen intergenerational ties through the involvement of young people in the collection of ethnographical knowledge and interpersonal interactions. To present not only our experiences with the ethnoperformance, but also the effects gained, intended and unintended, by the local community.
