About the piece:
Dominique is an essay on female body, a specific feminist manifesto. The solo, danced by the strong and subtle Dominik Więcek, explores the notions of masculinity and femininity, their fluidity and arbitrariness. Depending on the social and political context, the dancer’s body transforms into a female body, a gender battlefield. With the aid of his costume ? a long, woman’s dress ? Dominik turns into a model on a runway, a Muslim woman in a burka, a priest preaching from a pulpit, and a female version of himself.
choreography: Maciej Kuźmiński
dance: Dominik Więcek
