As part of Polish Dance Platform 2019 Marta Ankiersztejn will present her photography exhibition No Place for....
About the exhibition:
There is no place for stillness. In the dance world if you don’t act you disappear. In this art form, Freelance means an everyday struggle for being visible. There is no place for being bleak. You have to be something, you have to be searching, be amazing, you have to undertake difficult topics and contend with them. How do you find peace in this continuous race?
A bed. A room. A flat. Berlin.
This is the place to which they return after long journeys. Here they have their favourite cafes and parks, here are their friends. Here they have space for the books they have been collecting for years, for posters, memories. Here is home. Come in, feel yourself at home.
