Following the success of “Gombka F.” based on Witold Gombrowicz's “Ferdydurke”, the Philharmonic in Szczecin is working on another ambitious artistic event – the performance “Bromba and the music”. We have managed to invite to the cooperation the author himself – Maciej Wojtyszko. Young talented vocalists and dancers may take part in castings for this show.
The performance “Bromba and the music” was commissioned by the Philharmonic in Szczecin. New adventures for Bromba, this time set in the Philharmonic's building, will take audiences into the mysterious world of sounds. Many excellent artists have been invited to take part in this project. Maciej Wojtyszko is the author of the script. He is also the creator of the character of Bromba and writer of many other “Bromba and others” stories which have become a canon of boos for children and teenagers. Piotr Moss composed the music for the show. He is an established composer of theatre and film music. Bassem Akiki will conduct the Symphony Orchestra. He is one of the most talented conductors of the young generation, and is connected with the Polish National Opera in Warsaw on a daily basis. Maciej's son Adam directs the show. Earlier, he staged Bromba at the 6th Floor Theatre in Warsaw.
Szczecin artists will also have their contribution in this project. Krzysztof Lubka (Kiosk Ruchu – Dance Theatre) and Karolina Wyrwał will be responsible for the choreography while the costumes and scenography are being prepared by Michał Szyksznian. Agata Kolasińska will become Bromba. She is known to young music lovers as DoNuta.
Apart from the Szczecin Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra and professional performers, the symphonic hall will see dancers and singers appointed through casting. Dance casting for persons aged 9-16 will take place on Monday 16th May at 15:00 at the Philharmonic. The following day, Tuesday 17th May at 15:00, casting for actors and singers aged over 18 will be held. More detailed information and regulations about both castings are available on the website of the Philharmonic in Szczecin.
The Ministry of Culture and National Heritage has shown its appreciation for the artistic and educational potential by granting 78,000 PLN in financial help.
