Art for Social Change:
Legs, Crazy Dance

AAA

photo: Dawka Energii

One of eight winning projects selected in the Art for Social Change competition conducted by the National Audiovisual Institute as part of the preparations for the European Culture Congress.

The Radość Życia Association will present a performance called “Crazy Dance“ (which takes place in Accreditation Pavilion PA) at 3 p.m. and a dance show  “Legs”at 4:30 p.m.

“Legs“ is the new piece by Dawka Energii Theatre-Dance Company. The Company was established in 2008 with the ambitious objective of introducing Poland to community dance. In doing so this bought together different social groups of varying ability, who may never have danced before, to create pieces of contemporary dance and physical theatre. Directed and choreographed by a mother-daughter collaboration of Wanda and Magdalena Radlowska, the company is the leading multi-generational theatre-dance company in Poland and has grown to 25 members in Poland and abroad. The company’s ethos is to expose everyday people to dance and culture, giving them the opportunity to work creatively with others and to open their mind to learning something new and sharing ideas.

“Legs” explores the difference in relationships between young and old, such as communication, relationships and emotion. How does the relationship between a mother and daughter change over time, when the daughter detaches the strings of nurture? Is it possible for the older generation to express themselves or show emotions? “Legs” aims to break down these misconceptions. The title relates to the body because the piece also shows how much beauty there can be in any part of any body, encouraging the audience to look at the human body in a new way and demonstrate that beauty is not related to age.

Artists:

Magdalena Radlowska is a dancer, choreographer, improviser and teacher. Born in Poland in 1981, she now lives and works between London and Poland. Magdalena graduated from Poznan Contemporary School in 2004 with a BA Graduate Diploma in Dance Practice, and in 2006 graduated from Zielona Gora University with a Post Graduate Diploma in Community Dance. In the summer of 2009 Magdalena completed an MA Choreography at Middlesex University, London, and a one-year professional diploma course at The London Contemporary Dance School at “The Place”.

Magdalena has been performing and choreographing for many years, presenting her work at international dance festivals across Europe and receiving several awards for her choreographies. She has taught contemporary dance in a variety of contexts all over Europe, most recently establishing a multigenerational community dance company in Poland called Dawka Energii. The company received funding on two occasions to create large-scale pieces over a number of months, toured to London (with a second tour planned in 2011), and attracted substantial interest from the national media. Magdalena is also a founding member of two contemporary dance companies formed with fellow alumni from The London Contemporary Dance School; Anima Dance Company and LML Theatre Dance Company. Anima have performed in several festivals and LML were awarded a residency at Trois CL in Luxembourg in August 2010. The piece they created at this residency was selected for Resolution! at “The Place” in January 2011. www.magdalenaradlowska.com

Most recently Alex worked with the ‘Noisettes’, and is a permanent session musician for ‘Bright Light Bright Light’ and ‘Glass Pear’.

Pokazuje, jak nauka byla wykorzystywana do projektow segregacji ludzi i tlamszenia ich wolnosci. W Szwecji. W USA. W Anglii (nieco nieskutecznie).

    Jeg tro jeg vil til Mallorca igjen. Jeg skrev nettopp et innlegg på egen blogg, om en tur til Al.uciad. Det er så herlig kort vei til Mallorca, en kort og fin flytur, jo faktisk, skal søke på turer dit, kanskje jeg finner noe allerede i mai?
