A graduate of the the Ludwik Solski State Drama School in Kraków, Joanna Chułek received the Silesian Marshal of the Silesian Voivodeship Golden Mask for Choreography for the performance ‘Heimsuchung’. She is fascinated by Polish folklore, especially the culture of the Żywiec and Podhale regions. She directed and choreographed ‘1725 Metres Above Sea Level’, inspired by the culture of the Żywiec Beskids. In this performance, she combines elements of traditional regional dances with modern dance.

Performance synopsis

‘1725 m above sea level’ presents a unique image of rich mountain folklore in completely non-stereotypical way. The creators of the show draw from the tradition and the cultural background of Żywiec region. Thanks to this, they are able to deepen the identity of ‘mountain people’, but as we might suppose, they do so in completely different way – through a form of dialogue in the medium of modern dance theatre. The discussion in based on present state of traditions and their future.
