Four performers take viewers on a journey into the subconscious and explore the world of the senses and imagination, to compose
a common pathway through dreams and reality by combining the work of the imagined with conscious choreographic devices. In her performance practice, Anna Nowicka works with dreams and imagination. Conscious work on the “opening” of dream matter makes it possible to create a multilayered show in which reality interacts with fiction.
As you focus your attention on the words you are reading, you are slowly beginning to relax. Your body is getting warmer and heavier. You feel your feet resting on the floor, your arms resting on your legs, your torso resting on your pelvis, your head resting on your neck. The weight of your whole, relaxed body is releasing into the ground. All what obstructs you, all what distracts you, all that bothers you is exiting your body and returning into the ground. With every word you read, you go deeper. You go deeper and deeper. And deeper. You release into the elusive world of flittering images that emerge in front of your eyes. With your eyes open, you begin to dream.
Anna Nowicka studied dance at the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance (SEAD) and atErnst-Busch/HZT, Berlin. She also majored in psychology at the University of Warsaw. Her artistic explorations focus on the relationship between the dreaming and the dancing body, and in particular, on the choreography of the imagined. Anna Nowicka holds numerous accolades and grants.
