Body Is (Not) Enough is the motto of the 4th KRoki International Festival of Contemporary Dance to be held in Małopolska Garden of Arts (MOS) in Cracow (12 Rajska St.) on 13?22 May 2016.This year, the festival will highlight two aspects of contemporary art of dance. It will present artists and companies who use the latest interactive technology and those who focus on the body and its abilities, demonstrating new, dazzling dance techniques. For the first time, the programme will include two Polish premieres, including a MOS production Digital Garden 2016, created by the MOS technical team and guest dancers. The other premiere, Tomasz Bazan?s Solar Plexus, is a work inspired by Stanisław Lem?s novel Solaris. Interactive performances will include a surprising poetic performance The Miracles of the Night by The Symptoms company and choreographer Réka Szabo from Hungary.

 

The festival presentations will also include three other foreign pieces: Darwintodarwin by the famous Johannes Wieland; Ann Van Den Broek?s The Black Piece, the best dance performance in the Netherlands in 2015; and OCD Love by the festival?s youngest star, Israeli choreographer Sharon Eyal and LEV company.

 

The programme will also feature Krakow Dance Theatre?s Nesting choreographed by Idan Cohen, Monika Kiwak?s workshops MAŁE KRoki / SMALL KRoki (for children) and (NIE)ZWYKŁE KRoki / (UN)USUAL KRoki (for blind and visually impaired persons), as well as meetings with artists and dance performance screenings.

 

Katarzyna Bester is the festival curator.
