On Sunday, 20 December (7 pm), Contemporary Scene Foundation will organise in ProchOFFnia (ul. Boleść 2, Warsaw) a Polish premiere of a performance Stories of Soldiers and Widows. The absence of yes by Zawirowania Dance Theatre prepared in collaboration with an Israeli choreographer Ido Tadmor. The first version of the project was presented during the Zawirowania International Theatre Festival in Warsaw in June 2015. The premiere of the final version took place on 1 December 2015 during Jerusalem International Dance Week in Gerard Bechar Theatre, Jerusalem. The performance will be staged both in Israel and Poland. The authors touch upon the subject of war, which nowadays is actually becoming very up-to-date and increasingly influencing our lives. It might be that only theatrical utopia is able to save our world from growing aggression.
About the performance:
Everything?s different, but nothing?s different. All wars are the same, but no war is the same. All wars originate from fear, but no war can release us from fear. All soldiers and all widows are the same, but each soldier and each widow is different.

Dancers: Elwira Piorun, Szymon Osiński, Ido Tadmor, Danis Bucksbaum / Ofra Idel
