Performance synopsis

Treatise is inspired by the eponymous graphic score by Cornelius Cardew. It is exactly its visual richness, from simple dashed lines, curves, dots and spirals, to overwhelming intricate structures that offered Treatise dance performance its starting point. Every single action is built within the score but in its final form and composition goes beyond: Krakow Dance Theatre performers create their own spatial, temporal, unique universe.
