In the Solitude of Cotton Fields | Radosław Rychcik | Stephan Zeromski Theatre
About This Performance
Styled like an Eastern European punk concert, director Radosław Rychcik’s contemporary spin on In the Solitude of Cotton Fields features 2 actors in chic suits backed by a house band, The Natural Born Chillers. Based on the French play of the same name by Bernard-Marie Koltès, the action follows an illicit, unnamed deal expressed between men known only as The Dealer and The Client. Featuring a cast from the Stefan Zeromski Theatre of Kielce, Poland.
The 29-year-old Rychcik is emerging from the exceptionally strong theater scene in Poland and is becoming one of the “it” boys of international theater for his use of an intense acting technique and simple yet specific stage design. Rychcik has directed shows by Bertolt Brecht (Versus: In the Jungle of Cities), Roland Barthes (Fragments: A Lover’s Discourse) and recently premiered an adaptation of Gustav Flaubert’s Madame Bovary. His work has been shown at Under the Radar (NYC) and will also travel to the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art, REDCAT (LA) and the PuSH Festival (Vancouver BC).
Co-presented with the Polish Cultural Institute in New York.
