‘lost in details’   (2010)

A solo work made within a residency program Solo Project 2010 at Art Stations Foundation in Poznan, Poland. The artistic coach for 2010 edition was German choreographer and artistic director of Tanztage Berlin – Peter Pleyer. A great support and artistic support was given from Joanna Lesnierowska. Music and lights were very important during the process of creating and at the finale state. Gonçalo Almeida created soundtrack for this solo. Lukasz Kedzierski designed the lights.

This is a solo on body, movement, sound, light, space and time. I wanted to question a concept of every single element of this performance, as well as a concept of dance show itself.

The solo was premiered on 28 of November 2010 in Old Brewery New Dance in Poznan, Poland. It was produced by Art Stations Foundation in Poznan, Poland and it was realized with financial support of The Ministry of Culture and National Heritage in Poland.

In 2011 the solo work was invited for Jardin prix d’europe as one of 15 emerging choreographers during the eXplore festival in Bucharest. In 2012 ‘lost in details’ was chosen for the Aerowaves Priority List as well as is chosen as one of 12 works for Polish Dance Platform 2012.

[…] “ This is a dancer and choreographer who will devastate you with the uncompromising force of her
vision.”[…]
*****Review by Stephanie Green for The Skinny Edinburgh 9th of August 2012.

[…] “Like watching the research of a sophisticated dance scientist, who has never forgotten that
choreography is as much about passion as technique, Lost in Details encourages an immediate,
visceral response.” […]
***Review by Tramway Young Critics for vilearts.blogspot.co.uk 8th of August 2012.

“I don’t know what you mean by ‘glory,’” Alice said.
Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. “Of course you don’t – till I tell you. I meant ‘there’s a nice knock-down argument for you!’”
“But ‘glory’ doesn’t mean ‘a nice knock-down argument,’” Alice objected.
“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean – neither more nor less.”
“The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”
“The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master – that’s all.”
