6PM Faun Fables (USA)
Faun Fables front woman Dawn McCarthy is a renaissance lady who enjoys singing, theater, folklore, dancing, traveling, nature and studies of the hearth and food history.
Her performing background was forged in oral tradition amidst a large musical family in Spokane, Washington and continued with studies in music theater, rock bands, Action Theater, Polish theater and ethnomusicology.
The Stage Songs Review is one of the Poland’s oldest and most significant festivals, with a history of almost 40 years now. It has always had a very distinctive mark of a high-class artistic event, exploring the best trends in music and theatre.
The Review is probably the only festival in the world dedicated entirely to the art of song in the theatre. We just love to watch how music and word contribute to each other, not only in musical or variety shows but also – perhaps most of all – in drama theatre.
The form of the festival has expanded in the recent years, becoming an increasingly international event. Since 1976, each year we host many recognized theatre and song artists from Poland and abroad. The artists have just one thing in common: a charisma in performing songs. We have presented, among many others: Laurie Anderson, Marianne Faithfull, Nick Cave, Patricia Kaas, The Tiger Lillies, Antony and the Johnsons, Gogol Bordello, Amanda Palmer, The Magnets, Brendan Perry, Lisa Gerrard as well as Berliner Ensemble with “The Threepenny Opera” directed by Robert Wilson, Volksbuehne’s “Die Fruchtfliege” by Christoph Marthaler or Vladimir Pankov’s “The War” (Chekhov International Theatre Festival / Edinburgh International Festival / SounDrama Studio).
