Outstanding composer Joachim Mencel composed great music for some less well-known, “non-obvious” poems by Julian Tuwim. Fresh compositions, filled with energy in new jazz arrangements will be performed by young musicians and singers. We will hear an interpretation of Tuwim’s works that no one expects…
Dancers will also appear on stage – thanks to interesting and intriguing choreography (by Anita Podkowa and Aleksander Kopański), they will offer a dance interpretation of the texts. A combination of music, contemporary dance, and poetry will make it possible to create an exceptional, unique performance.
The premiere will take place on the 22nd of November at 7:15 p.m. on the Stanisław Wyspiański stage at the Ludwik Solski Academy for the Dramatic Arts (PWST) on ul. Straszewskiego 22. Free tickets will be available for pick-up from the 18th of November at the PWST box office (from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.).
The compositions prepared as part of the project will then be recorded at a professional studio and filmed. Rehearsals have been taking place for quite some time now. You can see a description of the undertaking and take a glimpse of what awaits the audience during the premiere at the project’s website at www.tuwim.poeciwkrakowie.pl and on its Facebook page. Videos documenting the undertaking are available at tuwim.poeciwkrakowie.pl.
