Adam Pańczuk: Actors

Lens Culture... Adam Pańczuk: Actors. "...The Actors series shows amateur actors from the folk theater company 'Czeladonka' based in Lubenka (near the border of Poland and Belarus). They perform scenes based on old customs and rituals passed down through generations. The actors are farmers, who work in the fields during the day, only working on the plays in the evening. Often a show is performed by a whole family – sometimes three generations of actors take part in a single performance. The plays are staged outdoors in different parts of the village. The audience follows the actors as they move along with their stage. In the end, the actors and the spectators join together for a feast." More... Works by Adam Pańczuk at his personal site.
