Description

Join us for Akademia Ruchu’s Chinese Lesson / Chińska Lekcja, a performance composed of a series of five- to ten-minute pieces involving five  members of the group. Originating from thirty years of Akademia Ruchu's experience in building their own visual theatre language, the  performance adopts a unison form that is unique to the company.

Operating at the juncture of theatre, performance, film and fine arts, Akademia Ruchu (the Academy of Movement), has been the sounding board of Poland’s political life since its establishment in 1973 in Warsaw. Founded by Wojciech Krukowski, the collective’s artistic director, and consisting of artists Janusz Bałdyga, Jolanta Krukowska, Cezary Marczak, Jan Pieniążek, Zbigniew Olkiewicz, Jarosław Żwirblis, and Krzysztof Żwirblis, for almost forty years Akademia Ruchu has engaged in insightful reflection on communist and post-communist Poland.

Presented by the Polish Cultural Institute New York, Performa and The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center at The Graduate  Center, CUNY. Chinese Lesson / Chińska Lekcja will be part of the Performa 13 Polish Pavilion Without Walls.
