Norwid’s Return

The show starring, directed and produced by Marek Probosz, has won the Best New York Premiere award at the United Solo Festival in New York 2022.
Based on true events Norwid’s Return is a minimalistic contemporary dialogue between the actor and the pianist, a rich tapestry between words and music in which Norwid pulsates with emotion and provokes with every thought.

The dialogue between the actor and the pianist is a dynamic collision of words and sounds, a web of inner contemplation and resonance which reverberates deep within the heart of human emotion, confronting traditions, and enchanting with radical truth and the raw genius of a poet ahead of his time. By melding and cleaving a stage play and musical performance, it illuminates the Norwidean darkness, solitude and complexity of his mind.

The rejected visionary, a homeless emigrant returns to us today, more then 200 years after his birth, as one of the greatest world poets, a contemporary innovator who delights, cheers, moves, and shocks with aesthetic radicalism.
