Regarding the other in a cross-matter eroticism.

The gardener figure is meant to represent a colonizer of the natural habitat, where according to his needs, be it nutritional or aesthetic, he rules over the value of specific beings and their very right to exist. In search for a promise of a less aggressive human intervention in the very sensitive network of relations between different beings, Tyminski engages in an impossible romantic relationship with an ocean. In this manner, he undertakes a study of cross-matter eroticism as a potential means of sensitizing individuals to inanimate matter and creating an equilibrium of statuses between human beings and their surroundings.

Karol Tyminski

Karol Tymiński is a Polish choreographer/performer based in Berlin, co-founder of Center in Motion - Choreographers Workspace in Warsaw. He graduated from P.A.R.T.S. in year 2006 and previously from Warsaw Ballet School. Tymiński in his works deviates from formal aspects and focuses on the explorations of the human body on the very physical level, making it the source of the choreographic material. He aims to speak about human condition, reaching the emotional side of the performer by penetrating his physicality what was demonstrated in his earlier pieces such as „Doll House” (2011) „Beep” (2013) „Pussy” (2014) „Liminal” (2015) - commissioned by Icelandic Dance Company or „This is a musical” (2015).
