The publication Other Dances centers on one of the most significant phenomena of new art in Poland in the recent years: the bold experiments by the creators of dance, theatre, performance, music and visual arts – which have combined into the phenomenon referred to as the performative turn. The works shown at the exhibition include records of groundbreaking productions such as by Marta Ziółek, Komuna//Warszawa, Anna Karasińska and the Chorus of Women.
The exhibition presents a group of artists who are conducting a daring re-interpretation of the Polish tradition of performing arts. For the artists presented in Other Dances, Jerzy Grotowski’s para-theatrical activity, the classical and happening legacy of Tadeusz Kantor or of classical performance art are all significant, if usually negative, points of reference. They draw more enthusiastically on the achievements of relational aesthetics, alternative music, the theory of performativity, post-dramatic theatre or conceptual dance.
