On Friday, 4 October (7 pm) Club Żak in Gdańsk (ul. Grunwaldzka 195/197) presents the Polish premiere of DP1,a duo from Izabela Chlewińskaand Tomasz Bergmann. The world premiere took place in June 2013 at X Theater in Tokyo.
About the piece:
DP1is not a stage piece, not a concert, not a film, not an installation, not a lecture, not a performance. Dehumanized Project Nr 1is an experiment on dehumanisation and new singularity. It is a clash of anti-globalist ideas and improvised music, new dance and absurd show. DP1 is a stage piece, a concert, a film, an installation, a lecture, a performance.
