About the show
"Za wasza wolnosc i nasza..." "In Pursuit of Liberty..." Is a tribute to the Polish Constitution of May 3, 1791, first in Europe and presents its ties to the American Constitution which predates the Polish by 4 years. The Constitution of May 3rd maintained its significance to Poles during the subsequent 123 years of partition between Prussia, Austria and Russia its independence in 1918, through the German and Soviet Union' s occupation, during World War II and post war domination of Poland by the Soviet imposed Communist Regime. The Constitution inspired all movements for independence and Solidarity till 1989 when Poland regained its freedom. The show is performed in either English or Polish, and consists of readings from both Constitutions, with poetry, music and popular songs from the 18th century to the 1980s, performed by 3actor/singers to piano accompaniment.
The program is partially funded by the New York State Council on the Arts
