Crearte3 Group from Mexico starts on 14 May 2016 a tour of Poland with its performance Szept w moim oku / Whisper in My Eye choreographed by Małgorzata Haduch. The project is a result of Haduch?s artistic residency at the Centro de Las Artes in San Luis Potosi in Mexico, with support from the Adam Mickiewicz Institute/Culture.pl. The presentations will be accompanied by workshops for dancers and choreographers.
About the project
In 2015 Haduch worked with professional dancers from Queretaro, Jalisco, Pachuca and San Luis Potosi. The performance seeks choreographic tools for transforming the experience of dance from what can be seen to what can be perceived with the sense of hearing. However, instead of sound, this choreography focuses on silence, and movement is born out of two musical forms ? whisper and noise. The soundtrack features nothing but voice, and references to Polish and Mexican culture are intertwined in a surprising and slightly romantic way. The dance composition uses the methods of movement creation developed and collected by Haduch during a series of performances titled Free The Dance. The piece is influenced by the personal experience of Haduch who spent her childhood in Mexico.
Whisper in My Eye performances in Poland: Łódź (20 May, Movement Stage); Cracow (22 May, Contemporary Dance Stage), Warsaw (24 May, Studio Dance Stage), Wrocław (27 May, Laboratory of Movement ECC 2016 / Let the Artists (NOT) Die. Exchange)
Whisper in My Eye is the first project in which Haduch combines her professional and artistic interests with the recollections from the Mexican phase of her life. As a result, the choreography is inspired by both Mexican folk dances and by tender Polish songs.
The Embassy of Mexico in Poland is the tour?s honorary patron.
