Insight seeks to find a physical and visual representation for emotional states of alienation from the surrounding reality. By placing the protagonist in a simultaneously realistic and metaphorical space of a stage which is dense with micro gestures, shadows and voices, the show confronts the inner and outer world providing us with an insight into some ambiguous emotional states that are, nonetheless, familiar to us all. Translated into a powerful language of movement and image they draw us into a tense journey in the labyrinth of the human body that clashes, day after day, with the cacophony of the stimuli which surround it.
Insight is yet another instalment in the artistic dialogue between Janusz Orlik and Joanna Leśnierowska, which has been going on for almost a decade. It is also Janusz’s third solo in the Old Brewery New Dance programme.
