Performance synopsis

An actress, a dancer and a choreographer look at their artistic roots and their stories together, taking on the topics of education and identity. They try to identify what gives them wings and what brings them down. They seek answers and inspirations in Polish history, everyday movement and body memory – all to the rhythms of the 1980s, Polish folklore and classic dance influences. In this way, the artists of HOTELOKO create their own unique, absurd and slightly bizarre dance style.
