|7 December 2020
Meeting with choreographer and director Dominika Knapik and dramatist Patrycja Kowańska
Moderator: Anna Królica (curator and dance critic), Wojtek Drath (psychologist, psychotherapist)
Agon by Dominika Knapik is a powerful feminine statement that touches on the question of combining motherhood and an artistic career. The discussion raises some issues that are of key importance for the show: workaholism and the need to be fulfilled through working on stage. Since the director's autobiography is a pretext for the performance, the question about the limits of privacy cannot be missed out. The interlocutors also inquire about the methods and the course of creative process in working on Agon, thus revealing the behind the scenes work on the production. Light is thrown on various choreographic traditions included in the show in the function of a quotation. The discussion revolves around different issues in such as way so as not to reveal the course and essence of the performance.
