About the Bolero : I chose this work – of which Ravel said it was without music - for its simple, even banal, principle of composition, for its “cultural” dimension and its inclusion in the collective memory, on a dance level as well as on a musical level: It is also about resituating the Boléro, questioning its place and its dimension in our perception of the world, questioning the notion of sacralization of the work. We try to appropriate this work with the process of construction/ deconstruction, or at least conduct a dialogue with it, a way of desacralizing it, and also a way to give it a “different life” to this work, with a different body. On the approach and the sources : With this creation I pursue the exploration of new subjects and regions by using guiding lines of an aesthetic which I continually enrich: the mechanics of the body (bodies) precision in the movement execution as a means of transcending perception, immobility as a universe and as another way of perceiving movement, the positioning of the body in the geometry of space and the positioning of the geometry in the body, and finally, the body as a sign and a producer of signs.

We want to tell a story. A story when a boy meets a girl. We both know that this wont be forever. It might work for a day but something will always be wrong. Maybe just for a day? Who are you and who am I? Are we too naive? Too optimistic? Too direct? I want you more than i need you. Oh this was different before. This wont break your heart. „Im scared of whats behind and whats before (...) And after the storm?“

"Drugs are ... bad. We... I just wanted to ask, this is very important for me... Maybe it's stupid, sorry. Did I? Did I make love to you? Just asking..."

Duet inspired by the Dorota's Masłowska piece "A couple of poor, polish speaking Romanians".

The performance is a very poetic solo. It is a very imaginative piece traveling beyond dementia and alzheimers old minds. What happens far inside those seemingly asleep minds? A performance full of emotion, physicality and playfulness. As well as responsibility, heaviness and decisions. A backwards trip too death.

The yin yang symbol represents an expansible ideology, where contradictions are merging together and depending from each other. When we say the word yin, we think about yang as well unintentionally. The yin represents the water, the woman, while the yang stands for the fire, the man.The performance is a creation of two extremely different minds, but deep inside their similar at the same time. The dancers are not acting the roles of women, as they are actually women. They show us in well composed theatrical and sometimes comic scenes, what does womanhood means to them. They offer the fruition of they work to the viewers in the beginning, to mark that dance is not just beauty and sweat for them, but something sacral. The creators are using the freedom of association to express concrete things like caprice, sexism, and violence. Multiple question are raised, can an indian dance transform into childish brawl while the ground centric contemporary dance is looking for an ascended state.

"Although it is often seen as nothingness, or a kind of lack, it is not a black hole, but rather a container that contents everything, which enables and embraces it. Its essence is directly resulting insight, its experience is vibrant joy and expression is the active love."

Lama Ole Nydahl

Production of Polish Dance Theatre
