Berlin/The Proximity of a Straight Line. Performativity of the Avant-Garde: Przemek Kamiński/Sonja Pregrad “Some Other Things”

24 February 2018 | 14:00 | Berlin: Polnisch Institut Berlin (Gallery), Burgstr. 27. Schedule: 2-5 pm


As part of the exhibition The Proximity of a Straight Line. Performativity of the Avant-Garde in Polish Institute in Berlin (Polnisches Institut Berlin) Przemek Kamiński and Sonja pregrad will present a performance Some Other Things. In May 1961, an American choreographer Simone Forti presented a performance „Five dance constructions and some other things”. An audience gathered in Yoko Ono’s famous loft on Chambers Street, New York, witnessed a kind of a movement installation in which dance exists in a space above conventional stage-audience division, the way object exists in an art gallery space. Przemek Kamiński appropriates Forti’s idea, recycles and reinterprets the original choreographic material. He creates his own “dance constructions”, focusing on the materiality of action, rather than potential narrative associations. Performer and simple objects occupy together the same space and engage in similar kinds of movements: waving, sliding, rolling, squeezing, crashing, dropping, hanging.

performance presentation

The Teatr Wielki – Polish National Opera and the Polish National Ballet present Pupa, a ballet in one act choreographed by Anna Hop and set to music by Stanisław Syrewicz. The choreographer and composer reveal a fascination for Gombrowicz’s grotesque. Together they want to translate elements of the writer’s symbolism into a musical and visual language. Entering into everyday relationships with outer people we adopt a range of poses, play a variety of roles. Sometimes we direct the theatre of life, sometimes we accept the parts we are assigned. In his novel Ferdydurke Gombrowicz used the words "pupa" (rump) and "gęba" (ugly face, a mug) to signify the relations of dependence that we often enter into unconsciously. The title of the ballet refers to these enduring roles and labels.

performance presentation

As part of the Residency/Premiere 2018 cycle, Klub Żak will host the premiere presentation of Katarzyna Gorczyca and Oskar Malinowski’s Para nr 1 [Pair no. 1].


About the piece:

Perfection. Competition. Awards. The need of assessment. The need to torture the body and thoughts. The need to win. When art begins to act as a tool in the struggle to be the best artist in the universe. The best dancer. The best choreography. The best concept. The best costumes. The best me. Gorczyca/Malinowski use their competition experience and affinity for figure-skating to measure themselves against the best choreography in the universe.
