Founded in 1973, the Polish Dance Theatre is a professional and autonomous group, which evolved from ballet-theatre performances to the contemporary genre: the dance theatre which crosses the boundaries of genres, techniques and styles, frees itself from traditional means of expression, leans towards interdisciplinary forms and seeks new theatrical spaces. Its process of creation is based on creative improvisation.

Performance synopsis

The Polish Dance Theatre and the bodytalk collective have successfully performed together in such places as Berlin, Leipzig and Mannheim. In 2021, they met again to prepare a new performance. They want to find out what happens when dance, understood as creative movement and the most physical art, collides with reality. They also want to create a space in which they can reflect on the effects of the coronavirus pandemic by rediscovering the love story of Romeo and Juliet from William Shakespeare's immortal drama.
