‘FearLess’ is a performance created by Gosia Mielech – a dancer, choreographer, dance educator, Gaga teacher and a founder of the artistic project DanceLab. Physical contemplation regarding fear is the main topic around which the performative reality exists. Thanks to a thorough analysis of the subject and interviewing various individuals, Gosia Mielech has depicted fear as a common, culturally universal, social-semantic construct, which can condition the lives of every one of us.

Performance synopsis

Fear – a tribal emotion that brings survival and destruction, a slimy creature that slides under your skin and poisons your blood. The fearless woman’s litany against fear is: ‘I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past, I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.’ – Frank Herbert
