Rodowicz, who went to bat for Kayah, and got Kurski to agree that all invited performers could perform, was mercilessly attacked and blackballed by showbiz fanatics
Meanwhile back in reality, Kayah decided not to perform because she couldn't in good conscience when TVP is still blackballing those who are not sufficiently enthusiastic about the current government... (inc Natalia Przybysz and Artur Andrus)
Then the resignations began rolling in and now count Kasia Nosowska,Kasia Kowalska, Micha³ Szpak, Andrzej Orzech (announcer) and two artists who were set to be honored for the 25 and 50 anniversaries of their careers (Andrzej Piaseczny and Maryla Rodowicz respectively).
The mayor of the city is in panic mode as Kurski's cack-handed mismanagement is turning one of his city's major trademarks into a symbol of artistic censorship.
After the fiasco of last year's Pride of Poland (an international trademark all but ruined do to political appointments) a Polish trademark is set to be downgraded because the PRL style of the current government cannot separate art and politics.
I suppose they could get a bunch of pro PiS performers instead, but who wants to see that?
How do you say "trainwreck" (in the sense of artistic disaster) in Polish?
