Adelka Polak

[University Assistant]

Adelka Polak is the founder and Artistic Director of SOVA Dance and Puppet Theater, based at Sticks and Stones Farm in Newtown, CT.  She is a dancer, puppeteer, mask-performer and movement director whose work has traveled to Denmark, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, and Turkey. She worked with Squonk Opera who went "from junkyards to Broadway" and performed at Lincoln Center Outdoors and LaMama, E.T.C. with the Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theater of NYC. Ms. Polak was featured on CPTV's "Spotlight on the Arts" with Masque Theatre in a segment nominated for a cultural Emmy in 2010 and produced by Ed Wierzbiecki.

The Ridgefield Guild of Artists selected Ms. Polak as a three-year artist-in-residence with sculptor Justin Perlman, who collectively integrated visual art and dance into the Ridgefield Symphony Orchestra 2012 & 2013 Spring Concerts working with James Robey Dance and the Ridgefield Conservatory of Dance's Contemporary Dance Ensemble.

Her company's work mixes media such as video, fabric, objects, and natural materials with organic movement. In her original storytelling performance "Tales that Only Look Tall" she speaks of encounters with local CT wild animals and landscape, combining puppetry, dance & live music.  Adelka Polak has a B.A. in Theater and Cultural Studies with honors from Chatham University in Pittsburgh, PA.
