Warsaw/Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art: "Can One Die of a Broken Heart?" – exhibition by Ania Nowak

31 August 2018 - 7 October 2018 | Warsaw: Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art, ul. Jazdów 2.


As part of the "Project Room" cycle, the Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art will host an exhibition by Ania Nowak, titled Can One Die of a Broken Heart?, in which the author of the project contemplates the complex relations between the body, psyche, and the environment. The artist is interested in the disease as a state in which the border between the norm and pathology is constantly being negotiated, and the identity of the patients themselves becomes inflamed. The language used to describe the horror of the body is crucial here. Nowak also investigates the relationship between illness and time in sudden dysfunctions and chronic diseases, as defined by the dynamics of the relapse and remission. Nowak’s project is a fantasy about a tropical landscape stricken with a fever of unknown origin. It consists of a video performance recorded at the Botanical Garden of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Powsin, and a performance that will be presented in the Project Room on 1 September.

Warsaw/Teatr Wielki-Polish National Ballet – Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake”, choreographed by Krzysztof Pastor

25 September 2018 - 27 September 2018 | 19:05 | Teatr Wielki – Polish National Opera | Warsaw

performance presentation

The ballet audiences are perfectly familiar with this German ballet fairy tale to music by Tchaikovsky, about Prince Siegfried torn between his love for Odette turned into a swan and her fiery opposite Odile, who is thrown into his arms by a devious wizard. After many productions of the traditional version of Swan Lake in Warsaw, Krzysztof Pastor and librettist Paweł Chynowski decided to move the story to the reality of the tsarist court in the final years of Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s life. Respecting the spirit of the Romantic original, they drew on a Polish theme, a true story that happened to the Russian heir to the throne, Nicholas. For years, the tsarevich was faithful to his youthful love for Princess Alix of Hesse, but Tsar Alexander III did not approve. Through his father, Nicholas met and fell in love with Polish ballerina Matylda Krzesińska (Mathilde Kschessinska). He was possessed by his passion, leading to a well-known social scandal at the court in St. Petersburg on the eve of Nicholas II’s ascension to the throne. Despite the changed libretto, the show retains the most precious ‘swan’ sequences from the academic choreography by Lev Ivanov and Marius Petipa.

ONE has been created under the artistic coaching of Katarzyna Chmielewska and Leszek Bzdyl.
