Dazbog Productions is a multidiscipline theatrical production company and artistic creation laboratory with three branches of investigation: the fusion of theater and audiovisual languages, gestural theater for babies, and content creation. Founded in 2010 by Konrad Sarnecki (Poland) and Rocio Blanco (Colombia) as a creative association between their respective areas: his, set and material design, as well as light and sound design, and hers, creating and telling stories then materializing them in writing, audiovisual content, and on stage.
They have created the works El viaje de Kiara (theater for babies), The Ulysses Syndrome (contemporary multimedia theater), and La valiente Anita (a visual book), as well as shadow plays. They have been recognized by the Ministry of Culture of Colombia twice: in 2012 and 2014.
In addition to their theatrical experience, they also run a sensorial creativity workshop for parents and children from 0 to 5 years and a project for indigenous babies called Semilla Sentida that merits recognition. Audiovisual content is included as an important factor in their theatrical narratives.
