Dzieci Makbet: A Gypsy retelling of the Shakespearean classic!
Dzieci (djyeh-chee) is an international experimental theatre ensemble dedicated to a search for the “sacred” through the medium of theatre. Using techniques garnered from such theatre masters as Jerzy Grotowski, Eugenio Barba and Peter Brook, ritual forms derived from Native American and Eastern spiritual disciplines, and an ethic based securely in Humanistic Psychology, Dzieci aims to create a theatre that is as equally engaged with personal transformation as it is with public presentation.
Towards this aim, the ensemble balances work on performance with work of service, through creative and therapeutic interaction in hospitals and a variety of institutional settings. Dzieci believes that helping others generates a profound healing effect that not only serves the patient but also strengthens the ensemble’s work.
