Cybis Space

An exhibition of works by Bolesław Cybis, one of the most respected Polish artists of the inter-war period, is on display at the National Museum through Nov. 3. The exhibition comprises sculptures, posters, drawings and works of graphic art from the collections of Polish museums—altogether 300 items completed before Cybis left for the United States in 1939.

Flamenco
It will be possible to admire the original Andalusian flamenco dance at the Endless Heart concert at Polski Theater, Nov. 11. The quintet, consisting of Rafa de Ronda (vocal), Agustin de la Fuente (guitar), Ricardo Espinosa (cajon), La Marta (dance) and Eduardo Clavijo (dance), will play traditional Andalusian songs (flamenco puro) and present a lively flamenco dance. Clavijo ranks among the five best flamenco dancers in the world. During the 90-minute show, the band will also play tracks from their latest Arzapua album, to be released in November.

The concert in Warsaw is part of the group's Polish tour. They will also visit Gdynia (Nov. 10), Łódź (Nov. 12), Cracow (Nov. 13), Cieszyn (Nov. 14) and Olsztyn (Nov. 16).
