In less than 7 days, Polish culture will be on full display for the people of Perth when Polish folk group Kukuleczka present a two and a half hour artistic concert packed with traditional folk dances coupled with beautiful songs, poetry and music.
Not since Perth hosted the tri-annual Polish festival PolArt (link) back in 2012 (the largest Polish cultural festival in the southern hemisphere) have such rich and bright displays been accessible again to the people of Perth!
Vice president of Kukuleczka, Kasia Jayasekera said “We’re excited to showcase our culture to everyone, taking viewers through Poland’s rich tapestry of folk culture through the lens of the various seasons (Winter, Spring, Summer), concluding with traditional harvest celebrations in Autumn”.
“The program commences with a Polonez “Polonaise” which is a dance traditionally used by Polish nobility to open royal events” she said.
The concert, occurring November 6, will be hosted at Newman College in Churchlands and will involve over 100 of the groups dancers from the youngest being just 4 to the eldest 70, performing numerous dances, song, music and costume changes.
Kukuleczka Polish Folk Group celebrate its 30 year anniversary this year hence the concert presents a culmination of the group’s achievements, showcasing 30 years’ worth of dance repertoires, songs, choreography and costumes.
“Our dance group was founded in 1991 with a vision to connect youth with their polish heritage through song and dance. Today Kukułeczka boasts over 100 members and an extensive repertoire of choreographies and vibrant costumes to match” said Mrs Jayasekera.
“We encourage anyone to come see this magical and colourful concert. Our dances have been rehearsing every week since the beginning of the year, so we so excited to see all the hard work coming together and we’re ready to wow our audience!”.
