ZIELNIK/HERBARIUM is the fifth choreographic film directed by Iwona Pasinska. It is a fairy tale episode, told with tenderness, overflowing with intense colors of flowers and elan vital. A choreography composed to a suite by Edward Grieg and presented by the artist-dancers of the Polish Dance Theater takes the audience into the world of flora. It allows you to explore a day in the life of a plant, from its flowering to its end, drowned in warm nostalgia. We invite you to immerse yourself in the beautiful world of flowers and leaves, in the greens, reds and purples fading to the grays and browns of fall. And all this told with movement to the rhythm of the dynamic sounds of the suite Peer Gynt op. 1 performed by Trondheim Symfoniorkester & Opera.
