About the performance

 

The word feminism needs to be reclaimed in a way that is inclusive of men.

 

Dominique, a piece danced by Dominik Więcek, a sleek and slender young man, looks at the concepts of manhood and womanhood, at their liquid and arbitrary nature. His body, put in a socio-political context, turns into Her body, serving as a battlefield for the cultural concepts of gender.

 

Dominique is a coherent and well-thought-out performance that carefully and often humorously analyses the concepts of manhood and womanhood, their liquid and arbitrary nature. ? Mirosław Baran

 

Dominique is a powerful political and social statement marked by consistency in all respects, from movement composition and means of stage expression to the selection of performer. Presented in a multi-dimensional way, it appeals also to non-professional audiences. ? Hanna Raszewska
