Warsaw: 17th edition of the Body/Mind Festival – “Orient Yourself!” – to begin soon

21 September 2018

This year’s edition of the International Contemporary Dance Festival “Body/Mind” is set to take place between 30 September and 5 October (Teatr Studio and Hala Gwardii) under the wordplay lead theme “Orient Yourself!”. As it has been the case so far, the upcoming edition of the festival will cover some of the latest trends in the broadly defined dance art, while also focusing on the Middle East, or as it came to be referred to within the historical yet still applied cultural framework, the Orient. As emphasized by Edyta Kozak, the artistic director of the Festival, the 17th edition of Body/Mind has also been inspired by the strong social and cultural movement in contemporary world, the movement towards one’s roots and national cultures. This phenomenon coincides with information noise, an overload of news that results in a mistrust towards the reports that reach us every day. Thus, it is the Festival’s goal this year to domesticate this conglomerate of multiplicity and ambiguity, while also answering several key questions. The presented pieces and accompanying events will focus around four chief notions: conflict, masculinity, identity, and exile, which will interlace both within each piece an between them, manifesting a glimmering multiplanar character of the four key themes.
