Polish Dance Theatre’s “Let the living bury the dead” was inspired by the romantic tradition, escpecially Adam Mickiewicz’s “Dziady” (“Forefathers’ Eve”). On the stage, performing are all on the members of the ensemble, all in black and white costumes, and soon one of them will disappear. Both the dancers and the viewers will be forced to face the questions of our attitude to the ultimate end. How do we perceive death emotionally, religiously, morally? What are our mourning rituals? How do we keep our lost ones in the memory and at the same time how do we let them go? How to survive the pain and confide in the living?
The performance is a cooperation of an artistic duo of Prof. Aleksandra Dziurosz, choreographer, founder and director of the Warsaw Dance Theatre, director of the Warsaw Dance Days, current deputy director of the Institute of Music and Dance, and Tomasz Szczepanek, theatre director. The performance features electronic music by Aldona Nawrocka, composer, improviser, and pianist.
