Summary/Abstract: This text is an academic commentary and elaboration on an interview with Wojtej Ziemilski. Katarzyna Lemańska and Karolina Wycisk describe Ziemilski's use of Real Time Composition and “devising theatre” improvisation methods created by director and choreographer João Fiadeiro. The notion of “real time composition” involves arranging conditions to let things happen. One of the aims of the unique “work in progress” that is produced as a result is to uncover methods for both collective and individual work independent of creative practice. The authors, based on their analysis of a wide spectrum of Ziemilski's artistic practices, show how the Real Time Composition concept provides him with tools and ideas enabling him to develop his imagination and personal artistic palette.
