As part of the Polish Dance Platform Katarzyna Kania and Piotr Stanek will present their performance Scores for Yearning. The Concert. It is an accompanying event.
About the performance:
We all have similar chaos in our heads: a series of animosities, comic memories, some daring longings, and obsessively recurring sounds and rhythms.
Concert for two dancers and fifty instruments. Sensual and acoustic journey towards revealing different kinds of intimate desires of both performers and the audience. Performers use their bodies to open up space where the visual loses its dominance and the body is exposed – constantly trying to slip away from representation.
