Body Alphabet

The Body Alphabet, also know as Molik’s Alphabet, forms the core for the Voice and Body training method developed over 48 years of research by Zygmunt Molik and designed to open up the body and voice. It consists of a set of precise physical actions that can be used to build a body language.

She was also the manager of the Leopoldinum Chamber Orchestra and of Wojciech Rajski’s Chamber Orchestra before becoming head of the Event Department of the Lower Silesian Music Society in Wrocław. Ewa Oleszko-Molik met Zygmunt Molik in 1972. Their acquaintance developed into a close friendship between two families.
