The Magnificent  Mazowsze

“There is nothing greater than Mazowsze!” – New York Times

After the very successful fall 2010 tour of the East and Midwest, the world-renowned MAZOWSZE returns to the West coast of North America for the first time in 15 years, once again coordinated with major Public Television showings of the PBS special about MAZOWSZE: “The Music and Dance of Poland”.

THE MAGNIFICENT MAZOWSZE is a thrilling display of dazzling movement, vibrant color and stunning beauty. The incomparable Mazowsze performance troupe whirls, leaps, stamps and glides in a glorious outpouring of sound and motion, rhythm and music that celebrates the cultural legacy of Poland.

An ensemble of 90 dancers, musicians and singers are arrayed in a seemingly never-ending series of handmade traditional costumes – more than 1,000 in total, one more dramatic and colorful than the next. Some weigh as much as 30lbs, making their energetic gravity-defying leaps, twirls and lifts even more impressive!

The choreography and musical arrangements represent 39 regions of Poland with traditional performance styles. A full 23-member orchestra performs music ranging from Chopin to simple folk melodies beloved by the Poles for centuries.

Available for Western touring January, 2012
