On Thursday, 28 May, Natalia Wilk (Poland) and Joana Von Meyer Trindade (Portugal) will conclude their “E-MOTIONAL rethinking dance” residencies by showcasing the works developed in their course. The presentations will start the finale of the two-year programme that saw choreographers, dancers, and critics participating in workshops, meetings, and developing new creations in Romania, Portugal, and Lithuania. The presentations will take place at the George Apostu Cultural Center in Bacau, Romania.

 

Natalia Wilk  ? GLOBAL WARM{ming} exercise! ? work-in-progress. Solo ? an exercise in living underwater. In the imagined world of the Global Warming ocean. High tide. Low tide. Flow. In search of a centre of gravity and a siren’s tail.

Natalia has participated in master classes and coaching sessions run by Les Ballets C de la B, David Zambrano, Luquid Loft Companie, Anna Van Den Broek, Yasmeen Godder, Mala Kline, Igor Podsiadły, among others.
