They also did not discourage the audience, thirsty for outdoor spectacle. On the contrary, the Saturday evening storm and the temporary wall of rain made the spectacle “Gloria” gain unexpected and literally staggering special effects. With this strong accent the III Festival Between Words began – a meeting with theater, poetry and prose.

In the performance of the Ukrainian theatres Voskresinnia Gloria dance stilts, performances with fire, parades of mines and juggling tomfoolery made it easy for actors to establish good contact with the audience. Good entertainment and pyrotechnical attractions were not the only value of their performance. A lot could be read in the play directed by Iaroslav Fedoryshyn. He talked about it himself: Gloria is a very difficult story about the fight that a man has in a life. To tell about the beginning of everything and the meeting of a man with fire and water, his love for happiness and power, we gave the main role to ethnic music, which mixes with very contemporary expression. “

The event of the first day of the festival was eagerly awaited, the art of the Voskresinnia Theatre from Lviv “Gloria”. Embedded in the poetics of the group, already known Jelenia Gora’s citizens from last year’s “The Cherry Orchard” is a metaphorical spectacle and ethnic hiking, poetic story about life and about the elements of fire and water. The latter – as if ordered – fell from the sky. The rain began to drizzle just when the soundtrack was thunder! Some of the audience wondered if this was certainly not one of many special effects. But no: it was the truest rain, which stopped quickly and did not prevent the completion of art. In the show, one could see the motives of both Oriental and Christian culture. The background music is important: on the one hand the classic, on the other – modernity and in the entertainment sounds. This combination, however, does not offend, and the song made by Ruslana, Eurovision winner, used to dance on stilts even gained a new value. In some parts, he played live percussion Igor Sheriaeew. Add to this the painterly scenes of brush-lit lights and pyrotechnic effects. For “Gloria”, directed by Iaroslav Fedoryshyn, deserved applause! Tejo, www.jelonka.com
