The last event as part of the fifth edition of the "Super Sam +1" series of master performances will take place in the DZiK club in Warsaw on 10 December 2020 at 8 p.m. without the audience. The concert of Christian Lillinger and Artur Maćkowiak will be broadcast on YouTube.
"Super" in the title means that the programme will be based on renowned artists – masters. "Sam" (in Polish means "alone", "by himself/herself") refers to the solo performances as well as the creative loneliness. "+ 1" in the title means that each evening will be crowned with a duo performance. In most cases, the artists will meet on stage for the first time. The 2020 edition of “Supersam + 1” will present respected Polish and foreign artists whose work is original, experimental and innovative.
