MAKE YOURSELF starts with a training, an order and a body sculpture. The subject of this experiment is a group of 5 performers. For the performance time they put on following names: High Speed, Coco, Lordi, Glow and Beauty. Marta Ziółek as Angel Dust is a moderator and a guide through this experience. We are somewhere between gym, techno party and corporate mindfulness church.
MAKE YOURSELF is a utopian structure, which creates its own style, language and sexuality. It is a kind of trip, which transmutes body into a machine. Here the very individual monologues blend with hybrid group workout and trance practice consisting of rave, kundalini yoga, latino flow & dancehall.
MAKE YOURSELF is a gang, which creates and transforms itself to the Lutto Lento music.
MAKE YOURSELF was created as a part of a series of "The Real Utopias" - the final part of the project "The Future" by Komuna//Warszawa.
Marta Ziółek is a choreographer and performer. Before she began her study in choreography at the School for New Dance Development (SNDO) in Amsterdam, she was a student of an Inter-Faculty Humanities Program at the University of Warsaw. In her work, Ziółek focuses on expanding the scope of choreographic practice. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, she examines boundaries between visual arts, performance and choreography. She took part in workshops, projects and collaborations with such choreographers and theoreticians as Bojana Cvejić, DD Dorvillier, Deborah Hay, Maria La Ribot, Trajal Harrell, Benoit Lachambre, Ann Liv Young, Xavier Le Roy or Meg Stuart. In 2011 she received DanceWEB scholarship at ImpulsTanz Festival in Vienna; in 2012 she took part in Europe in Motion, a platform for young, emerging choreographers, while in 2013 she received a scholarship from the Amsterdam Fund for the Arts. Ziółek’s latest works have been presented in the Netherlands, USA and Poland.
The entry fee for the shows is 35 de lei (full price) or 20 de lei (reduced) can be purchased online from www.kompostor.ro or from the Stere Popescu hall before the show (Mărăşeşti Bld. 80-82).
