FIGURY (przestrzenne)
Project by Ola Maciejewska

The Polish-born choreographer has long researched the work of Loïe Fuller, an emancipatory figure known for the serpentine dances, and instigator of revolutionary changes in dance and visual arts. Never starting from scratch, Ola Maciejewska draws on the residue of her historical research, and takes us step further, towards the postmodern and minimalist horizons of another American figure: Simone Forti. The new project draws on formal questions which explore the idea of Dance Construction both as a concept and as a physical object.
A solo performance, a film and a performative workshop: these are the ramifications of FIGURY (Przestrzenne), a multifaceted work articulated around time, endurance, and the sculptural.
The idea of the sculptural is not simply reduced here to its conceptual framework, it is rather envisioned as an engagement. By inhabiting, adapting, listening and producing new relations the body maintains with its surroundings to reveal parallel temporalities at work.
