Description

Circe – Experimental Platform for Dance and Theatre in the framework of Polish Days presents:

TOTAL

Paweł Sakowicz

Speculating about dance virtuosity is a type of reflection that can be based on experience but isn’t necessarily empirically verifiable. The aim of such speculation is to frame an ideal image of dance virtuosity by drawing on predictable economic, political and meta-humanistic changes. A characteristic feature of speculation on dance virtuosity is risk-taking in constructing radical scenarios on the politics of desire.

Paweł Sakowicz is a choreographer and dancer. He graduated from the University of Warsaw with a degree in political studies and holds an MA in performance and choreography from the London Contemporary Dance School. His most recent works include „Bernhard”, „TOTAL” and „Jumpcore”. He has collaborated with choreographers and visual artists, and worked as a choreographer in a number of theatre productions. A recipient of an honorable mention at the 22nd National Competition for the Polish Contemporary Play Staging, he was awarded a scholarship from the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, and received a nomination for the 2016 “Polityka” Passports in the “Theatre” category.

The project is organised by/ is organized in cooperation with/ is co-organized by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute operating under the Culture.pl brand within the international cultural programme POLSKA 100 accompanying Poland’s centenary of regaining independence.

Financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland as part of the Multi-annual Programme NIEPODLEGŁA 2017-2021.
