EGO VU Dance Theatre

Dance Company

Ego Vu Dance Theatre (earlier, Vogue Dance Theatre) is a unique artistic project associated with a group of people who have continuously worked on its artistic shape since 1991. The continuity was ensured by its artistic directors: the founder, Kuba Kasprzyk (1991–1996), Eliza Hołubowska (1996–1999), Anna Gąciarz in collaboration with Edyta Waszak (1999–2004) and Aleksandra Carvalheiro (2004–2005), as well as dozens of dancers. Since 2005, Eliza Hołubowska has run the group again. The name of the collective was changed by rearranging a few letters during a concert summing up the 20th anniversary of the collective’s artistic work in 2011. The new name did not change the direction of the group’s artistic explorations.

 

The collective is based in and works under the auspices of the Gryfino Culture Centre in Gryfino, Western Pomerania province. Contemporary dance forms the basis of the group’s artistic work but dancers keep expanding their means of expression with different theatre techniques and other dance genres. As a result, Ego Vu has developed an original stage language, and it attaches great attention to conveying an emotional message. The collective plays a prominent role in the region’s dance community, remaining a major dance group in Western Pomerania, with performances presented at nearly 50 festivals in Poland and abroad. In 2011 the group went on its first international tour, visiting Spain, where it performed six times, including at the Festival Internacional de Teatro Alternativo Jaén Subterránea.

 

Ego Vu Dance Theatre collaborates with numerous culture institutions and associations, including the Kana Theatre in Szczecin, the Schloss Bröllin International Art Research Centre in Germany, and the High Definition Dance Studio in Szczecin. For several years, the collective’s dancers have performed at the Uckermärkische Bühnen Schwedt drama theatre in Germany.

 

Since 2009, the collective has co-organised the annual Autumn Dance Stage Festival of Short Dance Forms which hosts important dance theatre performances from Poland and abroad. So far, the festival has presented works by artists from Poland, Germany, Britain, Japan, Venezuela and New Zealand.

 

The collective’s dancers take part in workshops run by major dance centres in Poland and Germany. The group regularly hosts renowned artists. In 2008, Gryfino was visited by, among others, Diana Gajownik (Wielki Theatre in Poznań) and Sean Feldman (Britain). The group has also collaborated with Henrik Kaalund (Denmark/Germany), which resulted in the performance Deteriorations, presented at the 4th Patchworks Clash of Arts and Cultures Festival in Gryfino (2010). The collective was also greatly impressed by choreographer Thierry Verger (France). After a workshop with him, Hołubowska created a unique and technically challenging performance Pomrok (Afterdark, 2013).
