Jeleniogórski Teatr Animacji (Jelenia Góra) An adapted appartment in Jelenia Góra is the place where more than 2 years ago the puppet scene started its existence. An artist from Wrocław, Anrzej Dziedziul was its founder. His office was set-up in the kitchen, while the workshop in the living room. In 1994, Bogdan Nauka, took the position of the Artistic Director of the Jeleniogórski Teatr Animacji.. The year 2000, when the theatre acquired its own scene in the Zdrojowy Theatre in Cieplice, was the breaking point in its history. Since then, it started to organize the cultural life of the historical spa. Unusual atmosphere of this XVIII century resort is hihglighted by an absolutely magical building, constructed by an architect from Berlin, Gotfried Geissler. "Hofmamania" Director and Screenplay: Bogdan Nauka, Decoration: Dariusz Miliński, Music: Agim Dżeljilji The spectacle is inspired by the life and work of Vlastimil Hofman (1881-1970). He was a famous polish painter representing the symbolists movement. He was born in the Czech Republic, but has spent his last 23 years of life in Szklarska Poręba. "Hofmamania" is a search for human's need of sensitivity. The spectacle impresses us and captivates our attention with the way the actors use the immense open - air space scenery surrounded by four burning towers. The spectacle composed of seven scenes from the works of art of Hofman relates to his life experience. The figures and the carefully chosen by Dariusz Miliński decoration, perfectly demonstrate the world of the painter. "Hofmania" instead of showing his biography in a straight forward way, goes deeper into analysing his very personal emotions. The staging connects us with the history of Christianity. It is not hard to notice the symbol of crucifixion when the actor playing out the role of Hofman, falls down under the heavy weight of the bulk. We are attracted by the great madonnas, big wooden figures, that the artist wishes to make alive. We also meet his beautiful muse, who gives him the courage. The spectators will be enchanted by sensual and aggressively rythmical music, games of fire and colours and the unforgettable decoration.
