Antonina Jakubowska's Dance Theater invites you to the premiere of the performance entitled Lilies with music by Jan Gromski, choreographed by Antonina Jakubowska, created on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the publication of Adam Mickiewicz's Ballades and Romances. The event will take place on the 23rd of June, 2022 at 9 p.m. in the picturesque scenery of the Czesław Miłosz Manor in Krasnogruda, on the border of Poland and Lithuania. Admission to the event is free!
In creating the ballad Lilies, Mickiewicz combined romantic idealism with the simplicity of a folk parable. This is also the case in the performance of Antonina Jakubowska and Jan Gromski. There will be references to the musical folklore of the Slavs, processed using specially created electronic sounds. Bogumił Wiśniewski's costumes will be inspired by nature and movement in nature, showing the transition between the real and mystical worlds. Choreography is an attempt to reconcile classical techniques with contemporary dance techniques.
Co-financed by the Government Programme ‘Ballady i romanse’ from the funds of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage from the Culture Promotion Fund.
