Solo Projekt

Solo Projekt is the first in Poland residency program created by Art Stations Foundation in 2006. Its mission is to support Polish dance artists in their search for individual artistic language. The project's main stress is put on the very process of creation and the artistic experiment, with the hope that this will lead to an attempt of reflecting over the art of dance and, perhaps, to redefine the very concept of contemporary dance in the search for the means of physical expression. With this idea in mind, we have decided to emphasize not so much the idea of “spectacle as a product” but rather focus on the creative process and, consequently, to support the young participants not only on production side but also by professional artistic assistance during the process. This has led to many different spectacles being produced at Stary Browar as part of the program within the period of the last years – each operating on completely different aesthetics and representing individual interests and personality of particular choreographer.

The program is directed at professional dancers and beginner choreographers whose interests reach beyond the traditionally understood “dance theater”. The program's motto are the words of an English choreographer Jonathan Burrows: “One needs two legs, two hands and, most of all, a head to create a dance.”
