Mister Twardowski. The Fairytale is a performance built around the music of Stanis┼éaw Moniuszko which takes the audience for a journey into the world of imagination, magic and humour, but primarily dance. In the first part, Alina TowarnickaÔÇÖs choreography and staging present us the story of the famous Krakow sorcerer, his difficulties as he loses faith in his own abilities and the circumstances which prompted him to sign a pact with the devil. The second part, choreographed by Dariusz Brojek, draws from Mistress Twardowska, a ballad by Adam Mickiewicz. When the devil lures Twardowski to the inn and demands his soul, it is the sorcererÔÇÖs wife who saves the day, thus becoming the heroine of the story ÔÇô where Twardowski fails, Twardowska prevails!
