As part of Polish Dance Platform 2019 Dariusz Nowak and Dor Mamalia will present their performance into me see.
About the performance:
“We tend to associate intimacy with closeness and closeness with a certain sum of shared experiences. Yet in reality total strangers, who will never say a single word to each other, can share an intimacy – an intimacy contained in the exchange of a glance, a nod of the head, a smile, a shrug of a shoulder. A closeness that lasts for minutes or for the duration of a song that is being listened to together. An agreement about life. An agreement without clauses. A conclusion spontaneously shared between the untold stories gathered around the song.”
– John Berger
Intimacy, closeness, solitude – these states have initiated and led us to seek their bodily interpretations. We read each of them through our own experiences, memories and visions, which - vaccinated in the body and space – flourish in a motion collage.
