The lesson of love. The story of Kosciuszko
Anna Boyarskaya 16+

At the set of life the Polish patriot, the leader of the revolt in 1794 – Tadeusz Kosciuszko – lives in Switzerland, where he gives lessons to young Emilka Zelter.


The thrilled young girl tries to understand the Polish soul and asks Kosciuszko to tell her about heroic past, victories, treachery, exile, love… Emilka doesn't notice how she gets a sincere feeling towards this great, but suffering man. But whether the characters of the story can belong to someone, even to themselves?


The performance is based on Anna Boyarskaya's play "The Polish lesson" and represents the project between Belarus and Poland, organized with The Adam Mickiewicz Institute in Warsaw, The Polish Institute in Minsk and the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in the Republic of Belarus. The performance was timed to coincided with the 200th anniversary of the death of Tadeusz Kosciuszko – the national hero of Belarus, Poland, Lithuania and the USA.
