DANCING THE DANCE
Earth & Human & Universe | Art & Nature & Science
I work in the fields of choreography, cosmology and ecology. My work looks at the human Body, environment/ Earth, Universe and asks what is the choreography and dance that happens between them. What can Body learn from Land and Night Sky, how the relationship of Human to Universe influences the way Earth is treated, and what are the consequences of it.
Fascinated by space travel, my work admires the beauty of planet Earth. Interested in looking at Earth from a distance, how this perspective changes the way life on our planet is approached. The work wishes to challenge the ways human physical existence is viewed.
In my practice I am interested in the idea of creating sustainable art. Art that is conscious of ecological situation of the Earth and takes the responsibility of the costs of creation. I returned to working with body, movement and choreography, where I found space and a way to make honest work that gives space to the wisdom of Body and Movement.
In my recent artistic research I incorporate Old Slavic and Western perspectives of cosmology, I hold space to contemplate the past and future of our shared land – discovering Earth and its connections to Cosmos. Inspired by continued research of stone arrangements in Kaszuby, Poland, and the Slavic cosmology of this land, I follow possible astrological and cultural connections enclosed in these places. In my work I aim to re-discover and re-invigorate the role of dance and choreography in society, as guided by cosmology and contemporary movement.
I am part of Centrum w Ruchu – freelance choreographers association in Warsaw. In 2020 I founded Ruchome Teksty – Moving Text / an independent journal for choreographic texts.
I received a Master of Art and Science from Central Saint Martins, University of The Arts in London in 2016, and a BA in Contemporary Dance from CODARTS, University of the Arts in Rotterdam in 2009.
