Felicita & Śląsk Song and Dance Ensemble

Soft Power is a project created by Felicita in collaboration with Polish traditional dancers from Stanisław Hadyna's Song and Dance Ensemble "Śląsk", synthesizing traditional choreography and costume with new music to create a hypnotic multimedia experience; the concept stems from Felicita’s childhood education in traditional dance and continuing interest in folk culture, national identity, tourism, branding, illusion, and farce.


Organised in collaboration with the Adam Mickiewicz Institute as part of the Polska Music programme and POLSKA 100, the international cultural programme celebrating the centenary of Poland regaining independence. Financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland as part of the multi-annual programme NIEPODLEGŁA 2017–2022.
