On Saturday, 19 October 2019 at 7 pm, Old Brewery ? New Dance and Art Stations Foundation by Grażyna Kulczyk in Poznań invite you to two premieres of performances produced within the framework of the ?Solo Project Plus 2019?. The double-bill evening will encompass Martyna Lorenc (solo) and Rafał Pierzyński (duo). Both performances were created in co-operation with the project?s coach ? Dalija Aćin Thelander. The presentations will take place in Old Brewery (Słodownia Studio + 3, ul. Półwiejska 42).
Martyna Lorenc: A Feeling That This is the Case
My current movement practice concentrates on exploring the embodiment of imagery. It allows the body to feel as if it was transforming itself into multiple living forms and it grants the body a kind of autonomy ? its own language and agency. In the performance, I juxtapose this practice with my early movement experiences ? a childhood career in rhythmic gymnastics dominated by discipline and competition ? and after philosopher Catherine Malabou I raise questions of ontological plasticity and the possibilities of conscious change. How are we shaped by our actions? How do we become something/someone through our own imaginations, and how through everyday activities and their qualities? What kind of benefit governs our choices? And finally, how much of attention do we dedicate to external conditioning, and how much to languages and landscapes we find in ourselves?

Rafał Pierzyński: Losing the Form in the Darkness
When going through the darkness we need to care more, we need to keep in touch. In times of having, we keep on learning that loss is inevitable ? we were never meant to last. Eating our own trash, now we need to learn about giving and taking with more care.
Protect your heart at all costs. (ABRA ? No Chill)
