I know of the Polish mime choreographer Henryk Tomaszewski only from Danes :) His 45-minute pantomime, Bagage (based on a Danish novel of the same name by Herman Bang) was one of the hits of the late 1960s in Copenhagen. The leading role of Franz Pander was one of Kronstam's great parts, and Flemming Flindt wanted to revive the work for Kronstam's jubilee performance in 1976, but they were unable to contact Tomaszewski. (This was during the Cold War, for our younger or more forgetful posters :) ) The company finally tried to work through the Polish embassy and eventually got the message that "the person you are looking for no longer exists."

A premature obituary for a great artist who died yesterday.
