About the event
Papusza is a 80 minute Oriental Dance production on the life of one of the most renowned Polish Romani Poet - Bronislawa Wajs aka Papusza. “Papusza’s life is both fascinating and tragic. She was a path-breaker, a female poet in a culture that deemed literacy ‘unsuitable’ for women. While her art made her the first Roma woman to be included in the Polish Literary Union, it also led to her being exiled by her own people.” The production is the story of her relentless spirit and her quest for freedom to express herself through her art. The production uses traditional & classical middle eastern dances to narrate her story. The audience will witness dance vocabularies such as Muwashahat, Classical Egyptian oriental, Modern oriental, Hagallah, & Fusion Belly Dance.
