La Mecedora creates a welcoming space where artists can present their dance, theatre or performance piece in a yet unfinished stage of their development. This open forum is a nomadic and playful initiative that cherishes new ideas within body related art emerging in creative processes. As an artist-run platform, La Mecedora counters economical discourses in art that focus on efficiency, time-pressure and final end products. Instead, it illuminates the rich and insightful path leading towardsthe eventual performance, dance or art piece whilst reflecting on how perceptions are conditioned by socio-economical factors.
La Mecedora in collaboration with Centrum w Ruchu and Free the Dance will host the next presentation of work-in-progress in POLAND, WARSAW at Centrum w Ruchu 18th and 19th of October at 18:00 followed by a dialogue with the audience around the works moderated by Melissa Cisneros (La Mecedora), Malgorzata Haduch (Free the Dance) and Magdalena Ptasznik (Centrum w Ruchu). The dialogue is an opportunity to share and reflect on the process of decision-making, the consequences of made choices and a methodology of one’s creative pathways. – It poses the possibility to see the work in a wider context, offering deep insight into the nature of the creative process.
