On 15 September (5 pm) Syrena Theatre in Warsaw (ul. Litewska 3) will show the first solo project from Regina Advento, an artist who has been part of Pina Bausch’s Dance Theatre for over two decades. Presented in Warsaw as part of United Solo Europe festival, Dreamlines is an expression of Advento’s creativity, imagination and artistic freedom.
Having conceived of the idea to create a solo performance, Regina Advento would search for inspiration in the studio, spending hours alone in the company of a camera, working on subsequent elements of the piece. Dreamlinesis clearly influenced by Pina Bausch, yet it is also a very personal tale reaching back to the author’s Brazilian roots.
Other guests of the festival are: Bill Bowers, student of legendary mime master, Marcel Marceu, and American Anthony Nikolchev, who trained at the Grotowski Institute in Wrocław. His monodrama’s co-directors are Yuriy Kordonskiy and Matej Matejka.
