MEET THE ARTISTS I'M WORKING WITH

INDEPENDENT CHOREOGRAPHER

As Renata Piotrowska-Auffret describes her works: „I am a female artist, I am a women, I am a mother – so the polarization of the body touches me directly. I always have a personal and autobiographical urgency to do the work.” As a result of working with politically involved themes in the frame of PRIVATE PIECES SERIES, three performances have already been created.

Death. Exercises and variations (Aerowaves Twenty 2017) tells a story through movement and words of one female body. Of the body that deliberately and ironically exposes itself to a stage confrontation with death, and more precisely, with a figure of a skeleton and with a phenomenon of dance macabre.

The pure gold is seeping out of me (Aerowaves Twenty 2019) is composed of voices of many different women with different bodies. The politics of reproduction, including childbirth and motherhood that can be described as close and paradoxical relations between life and death, become in here a leading topic.

The pure gold… has been already presented in 2019 in the frame of European festivals: Spring Forward in Paris (France), Studio Dance Scene and Dance Art Center in Warsaw (Poland), Cloud Festival in Tirana (Albania), NORMA Festival in Ostrava (Czech Republic), Festival Culturescapes in Dornach and Museum Susch in Zernez (Switzerland); and in 2020/21 will be presented in, among others, Denmark (Bora Bora Dans & Visuelt Teater; Danshallerne), Germany (Staatstheater Mainz; Off Europa Festival), Czech Republic (Baazar Festival), Ireland (Dance Limerick), Romania (Like Festival), Georgia (Circe Platform) and Great Britain (Sadler’s Wells).

Flatland of limp muscles (2019) is the third piece from the series. Based on testimonies of contemporary women gathered by the artists, and the formula of the fairy tale and the witch, the production tells of strategies for abusing the female body, and deconstructs and transforms the power/violence narratives and mechanisms present in culture today.


HOLOBIONT COLLECTIVE

The work of the Holobiont collective is based on the assumption that every participant of the performance – regardless of age and experience – is a fully competent performing arts recipient. Focusing on the diversity of the creative engagement of their audiences, the artists observe and explore the possibilities of deepening long-term relationships through art. 

_on_line__ is an interactive dance performance for families with children aged 5-7 y.o. Running, walking, standing, sitting, laying, rolling, jumping. With family, peers or alone. Vertically, horizontally, on the ground and in the air. Listening to the music tact or to one’s own rhythm. What drawing will remain on paper in response to different type of movement?

The  _on_line__ performance explores the issue of the traces left by movement. By dancing together, the participants will create huge scale drawings to transform them later in many different ways.  Such constructed event can become a creative experience to tighten the bond between kids and their caretakers. It makes also a unique occasion for unusual art encounter. Produced by Art Stations Foundation by Grażyna Kulczyk.
