On Sunday, 1 March (7 pm) Gdańsk’s Club Żak (ul. Grunwaldzka 195/197) presents the premiere of the first piece developed as part of Residency/Premiere 2015, the residency programme for young choreographers. Pozostańmy in touch is a creation of the dancing trio of Julia Walkowiak, Daria Nowak, and Maja Grzeczka, who were coached by Gundula Peuthert. The artists will meet the audience after the show.
About the piece: People are connected to the web, that is how we obtain information, enter into relationships, organise our lives. Nowadays almost everybody handles most things on the Internet or by phone: that is how we communicate in important matters and about trivia. How does our psyche and our body react to this? Are we exposed to too many stimuli? Pozostańmy in touch [Let’s Stay In Touch] is a piece about a man’s real life in virtual reality. We’re all connected to the web, let stay in touch!
