Holobiont collective was established by two artists: Aleksandra Bożek-Muszyńska and Hanna Bylka-Kanecka. Their creative interest is in interdisciplinary, multi-generational projects. The work of the collective is based on the assumption that every participant of the performance – regardless of age and experience – is a fully competent recipient of the performing arts. Their performances include ‘roundABOUT’ (2017), ‘Moonland’ (2018), ‘_on_line__’ (2018) and ‘Where shapes have necks’ (2019).

Performance synopsis

An interactive dance performance for families with children aged 5 to 7. Running, walking, standing, sitting, laying, rolling, jumping. With family, peers or alone. Vertically, horizontally, on the ground and in the air. What drawing will appear on the paper in response to the movement? The performance explores the traces left by movement. It can become a creative experience to strengthen the bond between kids and their caretakers – a unique occasion for an unusual artistic encounter.
