The son of Polish immigrants, UK electronic artist Felicita grew up taking traditional folk dance lessons. Now he is fusing his love of avant-guarde music with an exploration of his Polish roots as part of a new project: Soft Power.
Working with the Śląsk Song and Dance Ensemble and choreographer Michaił Zubkow, Felicita deconstructed traditional Polish dances, combining the movements with contemporary electronica composed specifically for the project.
A single performance at London’s Barbican on 8 December marked the first half of the project, with the next event already scheduled for the theatre’s 2018/2019 season. The second half will see the involvement of contemporary Polish composers including Wojciech Kilar.
