Premiere on November 5, 2010.
Two years after the premiere of “Czas kobiety” at the Stary Theatre in Lublin, Anna Maria Jopek and Robert Kubiszyn recalled memories of collaborating with the legend of Polish theatre, Leszek Mądzik, and recorded the music they performed live every night on stage back then.
“Sensual, original, daring” – that’s how people spoke about the intriguing musical narrative accompanying Mądzik’s theatrical mystery with Jopek in the lead role. For 40 minutes on stage, not a single word is spoken. Jopek developed her own vocal language with a nod to classical and jazz music, but above all, it was subordinated to the role entrusted to her by the director. “In 40 minutes, I have to play and sing my entire life,” said AMJ – “it’s a profound experience, requiring great mental strength from me.”
The music of “Czas kobiety” is an etude on grand spaces and the simplest, elemental structures, such as voice with bass accompaniment. The collaborative work of Anna Maria Jopek and Robert Kubiszyn, a bassist with whom Jopek has been working for years, is entirely performed by this duo.
