Carrodunum Dance Company is a contemporary dance group that was founded at the end of 2021 in Krakow. It was created by young, professional dancers as a result of the will to work together creatively and to develop in the field of dance art. Our mission is to create interdisciplinary spectacles on the border of dance theater, performance and physical theater.

Performance synopsis

Oubliette is a performance inspired by the history of the prison system, penalisation, punishment and supervision, but also of a deep distress that is affecting the body. It is a story about the enslavement of both the body and mind and the interpretation of constraint, sacrifices, obligations and supression. It refers to a pointless and futile effort, which is endless and doomed to failure, but at the same time inspiring hope and constant motivation.
