In the frame of Open Spaces#1-2017
Tanzfabrik Berlin has continuously made it possible for emerging international artists from the apap network to work in Berlin within the framework of a residency.
Currently, there are two Polish artists, Ramona Nagabczynska and Karol Tyminski, in Berlin, who, after having recently completed their studies in a strictly classic form, now seek a confrontation with contempo-rary techniques. Ramona Nagabcynska's new work deals with science fiction, fantasy, transhumanism and other utopian impulses which channel current political anxieties and desires. Instead of turning back towards bodies as representation she explores the various levels of projection that a choreographic situation, as opposed to a literary situation, can hold. The radical choreographer Karol seeks a possible self beyond the boundaries mandated by culture.
