The Right Hemisphere refers to that part of our brain which is commonly associated with emotions and irrational or intuitive behaviors. That title, however, is treated more as a starting point from which to work on rather than an aim or a subject of the spectacle. Stokłosa seeks a source of movement in the attributes of the right brain such as spatial orientation, imagery or musical sensitivity. But the project is certainly not interested in stimulating neurobiological discussions. It simply treats biology of the brain as a pretext to start searching for a physical equivalent of the incomprehensible, the illogical, the nonverbal. The poetic content of the spectacle reaches to both common and individual sensitivity of the audience through their memories, past experiences and emotions.
Marysia Stokłosa graduated choreography department of Amsterdam School for New Dance Development (SNDO). Before, she studied dance in London, at The Place’s Contemporary Dance School (1997-2001). Her independent works include Let’s Dance Chopin in collaboration with the composer Janusz Stokłosa, solo Vacuum and several dance movies and video performances. As performer she worked also with Jeremy Wade, Sara Shelton Mann, Min Tanaka and Dick Wong. Marysia is a President of Burdąg Foundation managing the Open Studio for Performing Arts Burdąg at the Polish lake land Mazury.
