On Saturday, 18 November (7 pm), POLES APART will present their first premiere atthe seat of the Dance and Movement Theatre ROZBARK in Bytom (ul. Kilara 29). The group will present The Taming of the Shrew as part of the 26th Ars Cameralis Festival. The Taming of the Shrew is a very early dark comedy by William Shakespeare. The stereotypes mocked in the play present exquisite material for corporeal expression. As was the case with Shakespeare?s later comedies, the piece combines brilliant verbal and situational humour and unexpected brutality. Since its performance requires unconditional physical and emotional engagement, the alumni and alumnae of the Ludwik Solski Academy for the Dramatic Arts in Cracow (presently the National Academy of Theatre Arts in Cracow), Dance Theatre Department in Bytom, established the POLES APART company especially for this purpose. The atypical education of the performers enables them to strive for an original form of expression.
The so-called ?taming? of Katarzyna is witty, alarming, morally unsettling, and unfortunately still timely in present-day world.
Partners: Dance and Movement Theatre ROZBARK, Ludwik Solski Academy for the Dramatic Arts in Cracow ? Dance Theatre Department in Bytom, Ars Cameralis.
