Work. A melancholy tale in blue collars

18:00 - 14.10.2023 - free admission - more

The performance selected in the framework of the open Dance Art Spaces competition for a chamber stage production.

A blue collar is a working-class person who performs manual labor. Manual labor may include skilled or unskilled labor. These are also professions that require body memory, learned in direct contact with the object. For this reason, robots will not be able to replace craftsmen for a long time.

In the construction of the show, we were inspired by the theories of Emobodiment Heruistic and 4E cognition. The dancers are faced with the problem of a 7.25 kg ball. It is also a tool that the dancer must use to solve it. The more the dancer interacts with the object, the more his perception opens to possible solutions, and the viewer has a chance to observe individual strategies for dealing with the problem. Work is a concept with many meanings, from the profession performed, through work, to the everyday practice of coping with the fact of one’s existence. Blues music, which forms an integral part of the show, also deals with all these issues.

concept: Andrzej Molenda, Zuzanna Kasprzyk-Molenda; choreography: Andrzej Molenda; music: Patryk Zakrocki; dance: Emilia Biskupik, Paweł Grala, Maksymilian Hać, Sara Kozłowska, Anna Kukulska; light: Ewa Garniec

The task is financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage as part of the Art Spaces Programme, implemented by the National Institute of Music and Dance and the Zbigniew Raszewski Theatre Institute. The local operator of the program is the Centre for Culture in Lublin.
