On August 31, 2019, at the initiative of the Marshal of the Silesian Voivodeship, 
a great multimedia-musical spectacle in honor of the Silesian Uprising took 
place at the Silesian Stadium - "Rapsodia Śląska".

"Rapsodia Śląska" was not only a musical and multimedia spectacle, but also 
a musical piece by the composer, Oscar winner Jan A. P. Kaczmarek, which was composed especially for the 100th anniversary of the First Silesian Uprising.
Shape of the projection screen was inspired by Monument of Silesian Insurgents. Individual visual layers were mixed 
with live camera feeds in the disguise server.
Our main goal was to visualize 4 parts of the rhapsody, each of them different in dramatic structure and atmosphere.
Our main goal was to visualize 4 parts of the rhapsody, each of them different in dramatic structure and atmosphere.

The first part was based on the drawings of our studio showing different tenements and Silesian landscapes.
The second part was also based on tenements only in 
a different form, we used strobe windows and we strongly deconstructed the buildings themselves.
The third part was based on archival materials, photos and videos provided by the Marshal's office.  Also in this part we use paintings of the famous Silesian painter - Paweł Wróbel, we animated them and also deconstructed.
The fourth part was based on 3D renders of tenements being a metaphor for modern Silesia.
The official part was followed by an entertainment part during which leading Polish music artists performed. Such as Brodka, Grubson or Miuosh who lives and creates in Silesia.
