Radosław Rychcik/Stefan Zeromski Theatre: In the Solitude of Cotton Fields


“A combination of a concert, disco, poetic slam, and club event.” –Gazeta Wyborcza

Co-presented with The Polish Cultural Institute in New York

Los Angeles premiere

Two seductive frontmen for an edgy art-rock band have more than singing on their minds in this theatrical tour de force that demonstrates why young Polish director Radosław Rychcik is gaining global attention. Fueled by the live music of Poland’s cult rock band Natural Born Chillers, the searing text by late French writer Bernard-Marie Koltès takes on a visceral urgency as the enigmatic young men engage in an intense dance of negotiation. They are dealer and client, but are clearly trading something deeper and more mysterious than ordinary goods and services. The high-stakes game is played out amid a powerful barrage of video and lighting effects, enhancing Rychcik’s masterful manipulation of raw power and emotional fragility.

Generous support for In the Solitude of Cotton Fields was granted by the Trust for Mutual Understanding. Additional support comes from The Marshall of the Swietokrzyskie Voivodeship.
