About The Artist
Radosław Rychcik emerged 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).
“The Chillers' feverish, rave vibe is instantly mesmerizing.” – Seattle Times
