FOLK EXPO

Photos: Jeaneen Lund

In the performative component is a quest in search of identity of a modern Polish dance artist. The artists explore folk and its role

in the perception of today’s young dancers as an inspiration of sorts. Folk is not only understood here as dance originating from certain rural regions, but also everything that is linked to it – the traditions, community, national identity, closed forms. At the same time, they introduce “the other” – an Icelandic choreographer who is asked to create choreography based on an audio description of one of the Polish folk dances. They test the extent to which verbal narrative may convey universal emotions expressed by bodily motion and become a global folk dance.
