About this show

Poland's acclaimed visual theatre company Scena Plastyczna KUL -- led by esteemed visual theatre director/designer Leszek Madzik -- presents the New York premiere of Odchodzi (Passing Away). The show is set to a score of live scat singing, sung by Polish jazz legend Urszula Dudziak, and performed by actors who don't speak a single word. It uses shadow and light accompanied by haunting, original music and movement to convey emotions and existential truths inadequately expressed in words. Adapted by Madzik from Tadeusz Rozewicz's award-winning book of prose and verse, Matka Odchodzi (Mother Departs) -- winner of NIKE, Poland's highest literary award in 2000 -- Odchodzi (Passing Away) is a visual spectacle that examines the solitude and mystery of a loved one's passing.
