Barbara Bujakowska

choreographer | teacher | dancer

Barbara Bujakowska - dancer, choreographer and teacher working in Cracow. She was born in 1983 in Proszowice, near Cracow. She studied dance at the Anton Bruckner Privatuniversität in Linz, Austria and she completed a foundation course of SEAD in Salzburg, before that she studied at the Krakow Opera's Ballet Studio, she practised gymnastics. She won a scholarship of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage (2009).

 

She was a member of a Cracow group Hoplaa with whom she produced several independent dance video productions. Her ironic solo Swan_like, drawing on German style of Tanztheater, was awarded in a competition organized by TVP "Dolna Kreatywna" (2008). In 2008, as part of the residential programme Solo Project in Poznań, together with a musician Marcin Janus, she created a solo Movement Modular Synthesis, inspired by electronic music and functioning of analogue sound synthesisers. She also turned to formal experiments combining movement and music in the performance 3-Dance, presented at the 2010 Polish Dance Platform. Bujakowska also danced with Nigel Charnock – in the performance Happy!, produced by Art Stations Foundation, and in a production of the Gym Society Nic.

 

Bujakowska, both in her laboratory abstract projects and more “theatrical” performances – like Swan_like or the Charnock’s production – has developed her own original style based on a rare combination of distance, comic sense and analytical attitude to form.

 

In September 2013 Bujakowska made a guest performance in Magdalena Przybysz’s etude set to Witold Lutosławski’s music as part of the residency programme A few steps to Lutosławski – composition exercises for young choreographers (the LUTOSPHERES project), held by the Centre for Contemporary Art – Ujazdowski Castle, the f.o.r.t.e. Foundation and the Burdąg Foundation (artistic supervisor: Maria Stokłosa).

 

Also in 2013, together with Paulina Wyciechowska, Barbara made Śniło mi się, że pozostał po nas pusty pokój [I dreamt that all that was left after us was an empty room] (inauguration of the 2013/2014 season of Scena Tańca Współczesnego). 

 

At the turn of September and November 2013, Bujakowska was a resident of “maat festival – border line 2013” in Lublin, a platform for solo dancers. Throughout 2013 the Maat Studio of the Centre for Culture in Lublin hosted a string of eight artistic residencies. They were recorded by Patrycja Płatnik, and the outcomes will be showcased in the form of performances and documentary films on 14-17 December during a festival concluding this year’s residency programme. Apart from Barbara Bujakowska, the first edition of “maat festival – border line” featured: Anita Wach, Anna Steller, Magdalena Jędra, Kaya Kołodziejczyk, Rafał Urbacki, Przemek Kamiński and Korina Kordova, as well as Mikołaj Mikołajczyk. Bujakowska’s piece ID-ANCE will be premiered in Lublin on 15 December.
