Poetry concert: “LESMAN/FANTASIES” | ADRIANNA DOROCIAK & TRIO AFTYKA/IWAŃSKI/MAJEWSKI
Line-up: Adrianna Dorociak (script, vocal), Michał Aftyka (compositions, double bass, bass guitar), Piotr Iwański (piano), Kacper Majewski (percussion)
One of the most poetic events of this year’s Singer’s Warsaw, with Bolesław Leśmian (originally Lesman) as its hero. Polish poet of Jewish origin, during his lifetime described as epigone, and after his death – as demiurge. Escaping the influences of the epoch and history, during the twenty years between the wars, he created poems in a truly romantic style. Rebel driven by great passions. Master of the erotic language and neologisms, nature-maniac.
This inimitable, metaphysical atmosphere of Bolesław Leśmian’s works inspired the versatile artist – actress, singer, dancer, and pianist Adrianna Dorociak to work on a musical project entitled “Lesman/Fantasies”, with the melody of his poems and their accentual-syllabic features resulting in their musical development. To collaborate, Dorociak invited Michał Aftyka, bassist and composer, and his band; these are his compositions that we hear in the project.
Together, the artists invite the audience to the world of Bolesław Leśmian. A world full of philosophy, fantasy, and symbolism, where nothingness and death flirt with life-giving passion.
