Ameryka by Nancy Keystone
Polish General Thaddeus Kosciusko befriended Thomas Jefferson when he fought on behalf of the patriots in the American Revolution. The notions he brought back to Poland fostered a national desire for democratic freedoms that remained unfulfilled until the success of the “Solidarity” social movement of the 1980s.
You can join U.S. Artist Fellow Nancy Keystone and her Critical Mass Performance Group for a dramatic staged reading of a work-in-process that explores the centuries-old and often surprising connections between American ideals, politics, and culture with Poland’s struggle for independence.
