Genius Lutos

The pilot project 'Genius Lutos' is realized together with the Szczecin Philharmonic. As an example of good practice to be disseminated in cultural institutions in Poland it is addressed to persons with mental disabilities. A special role within the project is played by the Percussion Orchestra Gamelan, working by the Szczecin circle of the Polish Association for Persons with Mental Disabilities (PSOUU), bringing together individuals with intellectual handicaps. Rehearsals and workshops of the Orchestra, which serve the preparation of new repertoire based on Lutosławski’s ideas and inspired by his creative work, will lead to joint concerts with the Szczecin Philharmonic. A permanent effect of the project will be a method guide complete with film documentation.
