OTHER DANCES, Performance Turn in Polish Art of Twenty-First Century, Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art| Warsaw

The exhibition Other Dances takes on board one of the most significant phenomena of new art in Poland in the recent years: the bold experiments by the creators of dance, theatre, performance,music and visual arts which have combined into the phenomenon referred to as the performative turn.

The exhibition presents a group of artists who are conducting a daring reinterpretation of the Polish tradition of performing arts. For the artists presented at Other Dances, Jerzy Grotowskis paratheatrical activity, the classical and happening legacy of Tadeusz Kantor or of classical performance art are all significant, if usually negative, points of reference.They draw more enthusiastically on the achievements of relational aesthetics, alternative music, the theory of performativity, postdramatic theatre or conceptual dance.

The title Other Dances refers to the production put on in 1982 by one of the most important formations of Polish experimental theatre   Academy of Movement (A.R.).

Other Dances. Performance Turn in Polish Art of TwentyFirst Century edited by Agnieszka Sosnowska is a publication that recapitulates exhibition that was presented at the Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art back in 2018.
