What does it mean to be alive? To see things clear? I never do no matter how much do I think, work, read, learn, experience… To breathe and taste and touch and see and feel? Most of the time I do this, but most of the time I am not sure what do I breathe and taste and touch and see and feel. I’m hostage of my multilayerd, heavy and difficult personality, which is not certain about anything. I’m hostage of my body, space, time, nationality, love, life, earth, air… I’m not sure I want to be free – outside my body, space, time… Until I’m captive, I’m alive. And yet, I feel as a mistake that happen 39 years ago on the hot summer evening 14th of June 1973 in Kielce, when after being blown away with passion, my father said to my mother: “Oops.” And she asked: “What?” And he said: “Yes.” And she said: “Fuck.” I cannot correct this. The only thing that can follow is just another oops.
OOPS is Art Station Foundation (Poznań) and Via Negativa (Ljubljana) most recent production. Conceived in the frames of Modul-Dance project, a multiannual program supporting European dance artists. Polish premiere of Anita Wach solo will take place in June 2012.
