A poetic visual concert for dancing bodies to the music of Henrik GORECKI
The Tatry are a mountain range that separates between Slovakia and Poland. In both countries The Tatry are protected by the law through the establishment of National Parks, which entered in UNESCO’s World Network of Biosphere. This exciting and cutting edge new contemporary dance piece researches the common space of the stage versus the individual space of the body. Through the remarkably delicate choreography, the dancer’s individuality in movement and expression comes to light. Throughout the full evening performance, the audience is taken through a journey of human emotions about personal, collective and social perspectives.
