Axiom of Choice
- Agata Życzkowska Concept creator, director, choreographer, dancer, dramaturg, video creator
- Mirek Woźniak Choreographer, dancer, dramaturg
- Wojtek Kaniewski Video creator
The theory of AXIOM OF CHOICE is transformed through the prism of the artists' identity in terms of social and choreography. The selectors they choose are generation, ecology, numbers, pheromones, blood type, being a stranger, or the smell of mandarins from childhood. In a climate crisis, in apocalyptic times, the axiom of choice is an optimistic theory. However, this optimism can only exist in a moment of meeting. Action awakens as a result of associations with scent, which are treated as a unique time capsule.
