Take your clothes off, or wait, I’ll do it.
Can you express anything with a T-shirt?
Is each time you take it off meaningful?
And if you let somebody else do it?
Or perhaps if I take it off you…
Already today, at 7 pm, komuna//waszawa (ul. Lubelska 30/32) is presenting the premiere of Magdalena Zielińska’s piece as part of the RE//MIX Finale.Take your clothes off, or wait, I’ll do it (Rozbierz się, albo nie, ja to zrobię) is a performance inspired by Jérôme Bel’s Shirtology. His T-shirts are commandscarried out by the dancer. Marketing slogans. But what if the T-shirt clinging to your skin expressed something closer? Or perhaps it is still the body giving expression to the T-shirt, regardless of what’s on it?
