Dance artist, cultural worker; born in Konin, 1992; graduate of Tanz, Kontext, Choreographie (HZT/Berlin) and Central European Studies, Intercultural Communication (UAM/Poznań). Dorota’s work unfolds around materiality, physical practice and processes of creating meaning; it is put in motion by the intermingling of physical conditions, embodied knowledge and abstract concepts. To place it in theoretical discourse: rooted in queer phenomenology, new materialism and critical semiotic approaches.

A performance based on the fragility of improvisation and (impersonal) affect which becomes a common ground for everyone engaged in the situation – both dancers and spectators. Stretching time, careful navigation of the gaze, following the inner dance of attention – this sets in motion a cascade of co-incidences that make space for various feelings and fabulations to arise. The performance has been developed together with the practice of ‘working with the obvious'.
