On Monday, January 24, Studio Hrdinů in Prague, Czech Republic, will host the first of Renata Piotrowska-Auffret’s three international premieres this year.In her upcoming pieces, the artist will investigate choreography as socio-political tool, examine the body as a source of inspiration and content, and invest in creative processes with different groups and institutions.
As Long as We Dance
A performance with six Czech dance and theatre proffessionals on stage.
The performace’s point of departure is the current pandemic situation we find ourselves in, which gave death more than just one fatal meaning. The pandemia has thrown social death upon us, changed our habits and usurped all our attention. The performance is a revolt – a revolt of those, who are or were in the most complicated of situations – that is, women and mothers. But most of all, it is a celebration of dance itself.
