WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

This is a rare chance to catch the astonishing Gardzienice Centre for Theatre Practices. Under Staniewski's artistic direction, the company presents an electrifying double-bill -- Metamorphoses>, based on the 2nd century story The Golden Ass, and Apuleius and Electra by Euripides. Their distinctive interpretations are drawn from years of extensive training and research around ancient Greek music and iconography. The result is an absorbing and wildly intense evening of chanting, song, dance, and gesture exploring the extremes of human emotion. Direction, text adaptation and music and gesture dramaturgy by Wlodzimierz Staniewski.
