What do you need? What do you see? Smok is a Dragon. Demon?
Thiefs of a cuddle,
women who endure,
women who cry,
women in solitude,
women giving love,
women loving what they are not, yet.
Complete in a constant becoming,
object, rest, respite,
that’s the way it happens.
now is the time
to gather and give back
the beauty of life
inside & out there.
Czym jest dla mnie taniec? Jako solo praktyka w studio, jest to dialog z samą sobą, z pamięcią,
z wyobraźnią, z przestrzenią. / What is dance for me? As a solo practice in a studio it is an ongoing dialogue with myself, with body, memory, imagination and with space.
Marysia Zimpel, studied dance with Gill Clark, Rosalind Crisp, Isabelle Schad a.o. Running, swimming, release work as well as somatic work were extensively present in her dance education, and still are in her dance practice. She studied contemporary dance, choreography and context at HZT, UdK in Berlin. At the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Poland, at the Department of Cultural Studies, she defended her thesis: “Dance practice – mobile space of creating of the self”. She has performed her works in Berlin, Vienna (ImageTanz 2011), Poznań, Amsterdam. In 2010 she has joined the Vienna based performance collective God’s Entertainment, with which she performed until 2012.
