HALFWAY FESTIVAL PRESENTS: Karolina Czarnecka
Karolina Czarnecka is an interdisciplinary artist. In her work she mixes different fields of art and explores its barriers. Having sung a number “Hera, koka, hasz, LSD” (based on The Tiger Lillies’ “Heroine and Cocaine”) at The Actors’ Song Review in Wrocław she achieved recognition and conquered the hearts of the internauts. She’s graduated from The Aleksander Zelwerowicz National Academy of Dramatic Art in Warsaw, co-creates theatrical cabaret group Pożar w Burdelu (Fire in the Brothel) and is a part of Gang Śródmieście group. In 2014 she has released an EP “Córka” (“Daughter”) that got a warm welcome. In 2018 an LP “Solarium 2.0” premiered with a single “Anaruk.” The album remains a follow-up to the story to the debut CD.
“Solarium 2.0” is another meeting with Tina, a character of a young girl who’s drove off to the capital city to dream her big-city dreams. The LP allows us to visit her in her room and share her worries while drinking tea, eating cookies, sitting on the mattress and listening to a story she tells about her journey.
The LP is a story of a girl born in 1989 provincial Poland, who’s trying to find her place in the capitalist reality she’s been put in. The music is by Michał Górczyński and Jacek Kita, the lyrics by Karolina Czarnecka and Michał Walczak. Visuals: Dominika Grzybek.
