This year marks the 75th anniversary of Wroclaw as a postwar Polish city. Although the celebration of this jubilee has been disturbed due to the current pandemic, we have prepared an exceptional event for you: ‘75, or the Postwar History of Wroclaw’.
This performance has been created on the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II and the annexation of the Western Lands to Poland.
It is a journey in time that shows the history of Wroclaw from the ruins remaining after the war until the currently beautiful and thriving European city. The performance is also a tribute paid to all those who have contributed to the restoration and formation of today's Wroclaw for 75 years.
‘It is a journey in time that shows the history of Wroclaw from the postwar ruins until the currently beautiful and thriving European city. There will be acrobatics, dance and almost 200 persons on stage. It is an impressive show with rich musical and visual accents. Each decade is shown with a different language, form and means of expression. Performing artists, light, selection of songs – all of these elements draw the space and the zeitgeist,’ says the director of the performance Kamil Przyboś.
Magdalena Zawartko: ‘It will be a diverse and colourful experience with plenty of emotions and joy. Sadly, we cannot meet the audience live; this is a sign of the times and also a part of the history that we will present. Our history is colourful and shows our ability to mobilise. Each decade brings something new; we have been visited by great people.’
The project is a performance featuring, e.g., the Youth Musical Academy directed by Magdalena Zawartko, acrobats and dancers from Everest Production under the direction of Jacek Marks and Paweł Pater, the Silesian Art Collective Chamber Orchestra conducted by Mateusz Walach, and choreography by Marta Brendel.
