Description

Polska is based on two phenomena: sympathy and empathy. Using a variety of devices, including dance, performance, music and video, the show, with a subtle sense of humour, leads the spectators to react physically to what they see. Some of them may feel embarrassed whilst others will try to deal with their personal projections and expectations. Most of them will probably think about performance and performativity, about achievement and success, as well as failure and trauma. The dancer wears a sprinter costume and her body cannot escape being determined by its cultural nature.
