Zaduszki Poetyckie - Teatr Hybrydy - Gonimy póki żywi

Sobota 1 Listopada 7:00 PM

Polish Hall
3832 N Interstate Ave

Teatr Hybrydy Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego, jeden z najstarszych i najlepszych studenckich teatrow nalezacych do najwiekszej w Polsce uczelni – Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego przyjezdza do Portland ze specjalnie dla nas przygotowanym programem zaduszkowym, opartym o poezje Czeslawa Milosza, Juliusza Slowackiego, Zbigniewa Herberta i Juliana Tuwima; z muzyka Leszka Czajkowskiego, Henryka Warsa i Wladyslawa Szpilmana.

Wystapia: Dominika Swiątek, Maciej Dzięciołowski i Jacek Cholewa.

Bilety: normalne $15, ulgowe (student, senior PLBA member) $10 do nabycia przed spektaklem.

Gonimy dopóki żywi – nastrojowy koncert poetycko-muzyczny na podstawie twórczości polskich poetów romantycznych i współczesnych z autorską muzyką naszej artystki Dominiki Świątek oraz Władysława Szpilmana, Leszka Czajkowskiego, Henryka Warsa i innych kompozytorów. Pretekstem do przygotowania koncertu były przypadające w tym roku okrągłe rocznice śmierci poetów, których dzieła stanowią kanwę programu, m.in. 165 rocznica śmierci Juliusza Słowackiego, 10 rocznica śmierci Czesława Miłosza i Jacka Kaczmarskiego, a także 90 rocznica urodzin Zbigniewa Herberta i 120 rocznica urodzin Juliana Tuwima. Atmosfera zadumy i refleksji będzie współgrać z klimatem nadziei, optymizmu i pokrzepienia. Jak w życiu każdego z nas, coś umiera, wzbudza żal i smutek, ale potem coś innego budzi się i wzrasta, otula miłością, przepełnia uśmiechem. Niezmienne koleje życia i śmierci, nieuchronne i poprzeplata ze sobą…

W świat lirycznych doznań wzbudzanych pięknym słowem i nastrojową muzyką zabiorą naszych widzów Dominika Świątek, Maciej Dzięciołowski i Jacek Cholewa.

Polish singer, composer, arranger, and producer Grażyna Auguścik has won the praise and admiration of music critics, jazz enthusiasts and even non-jazz audiences with a singular voice that speaks a universal language. She is one of the most intriguing contemporary vocalists on today's world jazz scene.

The Andrzej Jagodziński Trio was formed by Andrzej Jagodziński (a pianist) in 1993, with drummer Czesław Bartkowski and double-bass player Adam Cegielski. With a well-deserved global reputation, in 2014 the Trio is celebrating twenty years of music making.

Passionately committed to both art and audience, Catherine's stage work ranges from 17th Century Opera to American Songbook. Catherine has appeared recently with bohemian cabaret ensemble Vagabond Opera, Northwest New Music, Musica Maestrale for concerts of English lute songs and early Italian repertoire, and a new group of musical theatre story-tellers: Heretic Opera. Recent roles include Despina (Così fan tutte), Cupid (Orpheus in the Underworld) and Meg (Brigadoon), as well as work on contemporary music projects, including film music by José Sánchez-Verdú to Nosferatu at the Konzerthaus Berlin, Young Camille Claudel in Theresa Koon's Promise, and Esmerelda in Queen of Knives, a new opera by Eric Stern. After seeing the Polish countryside while visiting family in Eastern Slovakia, Catherine is excited to be making her first foray into this beautiful country's Baroque music.

Hideki Yamaya, based in Portland, Oregon, is a lutenist and guitarist who is actively teaching and performing all over the West Coast. He has a B.A. in Music and an M.A. in Ethnomusicology from University of California, Santa Cruz, where he studied with Robert Strizich, and an M.F.A. in Guitar and Lute Performance from University of California, Irvine, where he studied with John Schneiderman.
