Body music spring in Poland, Slovakia, Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia

While we wait for winter to show its teeth for the last time, we enjoy early spring! In the middle of February, Alice in WonderBand went to Slovakia and Poland, performed, led workshops and researched the artistic material we are preparing for the residency in Teatr ROZBARK in March. Before that, there are workshops and performances in Belgrade, Zagreb and Ljubljana.

In Zagreb, we will perform at Zadruga Zelenica. Reserve your ticket.

In March, we travel back to Bytom, a city in the south of Poland for a residency! We cooperate with the dance theater Teatr ROZBARK and the Kraków Academy of Dramatic Arts. The working title of the project is Bytom and Novi Sad: mirror with sound. We explore the similarities and differences between the fates of people in these two cities and countries through traditional songs. Songs will sound the dance, and everything will be accompanied by choreography for dancers with body percussion. We will work with contemporary dance students at the Academy, dancers from the Teatr ROZBARK and local musicians.

At the workshop we held on February 15 for the musicians and dancers of the Teatr ROZBARK, we met future collaborators, and they had the opportunity to try body music. The next day we met with the management of the Academy of Dramatic Arts (Akademia Sztuk Teatralnych im. Stanisława Wyspiańskiego w Krakowie Filia w Bytomiu), seniors from the local community, as well as with musicians who are keepers of the Silesian tradition: Iga Fedak and Robert Kier. We have been researching the musical material for the residency in March. Many thanks to the host, Mateusz Kowalski, for the great organization and warm hospitality! We can’t wait to come back.

The work with dancers and musicians from Poland will be created with the support of the European Union and the Goethe Institute, the Culture Moves Europe mobility grant.

AWb in Bratislava for the first time

The concert in Bratislava on February 13 in Kafe Scherz was an opportunity to meet the organizers of the World Music Festival Bratislava and discuss the residency we’ll have in August. We will perform and teach at the festival, as well.

As a surprise, we prepared a Slovak traditional song, which we performed for the first time, to the satisfaction of the audience and hosts.
