Performance synopsis

‘Koda (a tribute)’ is yet another instalment in the artistic dialogue of Janusz Orlik and Joanna Leśnierowska – and a kind of summary of their longstanding cooperation. This work is not so much a tribute to Krzysztof Komeda, the artist and his music, but an opportunity to reflect on two artists’ the complex and interdisciplinary relationship. ‘This ‘conversation’ has many unexpected sounds, reversals and colours and – significant for me – is still a challenge.’ — Anna Królica, taniecpolska.pl
