Suite of freedom

The spectacle – Chopiniana "Suite of Freedom" (pl. "Suita Wolności") has an interdisciplinary profile. It consists of 12 ballet impression to Fryderyk Chopin music with short lectures and excerpts of poetry.

Chosen compositions present reaction of people to war, defensive combat for own homes and families and the success of this struggle. The spectacle has effective, dynamic stage design. The event can be accompanied by an exhibition with photographs taken on the territory of the World War II concentration camp during the performance of Chopiniana.  


Technical requirements
Dancers can perform in chamber conditions and in the open air. The artists are dancers with diplomas and soloists of the Polish theatres. We have our own soundtrack. In case the project is to be realised in difficult conditions the stage design do not have to be used.
