On 5-6 November (8:20 pm and 7 pm, respectively), the Art and Present Time Foundation and the Centre for Contemporary Art ? Ujazdowski Castle will present the double premiere of the Warsaw Dance Theatre?s Kolarz. Niepowtarzalne zderzenie z czasoprzestrzenią [Cyclist. A unique clash with spacetime] as part of the 22nd International Meeting of Live Arts ROZDROŻE/CROSSROADS 2015 (Centre for Contemporary Art ? Ujazdowski Castle, Warsaw, ul. Jazdów 2). As suggested in the subtitle of the piece, each presentation will be unique. Kolarz is an interdisciplinary, multimedia stage event which combines contemporary dance, movement, acting, music and video screenings. The sound, text and video images in the piece are compatible and often created live as real time improvisations. The audience witnesses an interplay between all participants in the event, each of them acting according to a different blueprint.
The Warsaw Dance Theatre was founded in 2008 by dr hab. Aleksandra Dziurosz, choreographer, dancer, and contemporary dance teacher.
