Grupa Studnia O. Association is an artistic group specializing in the art of telling. It is the first association of tellers in Poland (the group was established in 1997). The group consists of Beata Franckowska, Magda Górska, Paweł Górski, Jarek Kaczmarek, Agnieszka Aysen Kaim, Dorota Maciejuk, Małgorzata Litwinowicz.
The stories of Studnia comes from a rich and diversive tradition of folk (oral) literature like fairy tales, myths and epic poetry from different cultures. The art of telling is treated by the Group as an individual artistic work inspired by tradition, at the same time being a part of contemporary times. You will not find a reconstruction of the old practices of telling stories in the stories told by the Group.
Since 2006 Studnia has been organizing a cyclical International Festival of Story-Telling. The other projects include:
Egle - a queen of snakes - Lithuanian fairy tales
Ocean of stories
Costumes of the Constitution
Danse of stories, i.e. Chasssids of Piaseczno
