Performance synopsis

My Café Müller is fanfiction. Based on Pina Bausch's production, I create images related to my personal history. Born in Iserlohn, a small town in Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany and raised in Poland, I have been asking myself what would have happened if my parents had not decided to return to Poland? It's not an attempt to create an alternate reality, but rather to share the emotions that accompanied me whenever I asked myself: what if?
