My Beloved Country
In our stage performance „My Beloved Country” at first of all we want to refer to the current development of fascist thought in Poland, which is very disturbing. In semantic layer, we want to refer to the issues of patriotism and gender, including LGBT+ rights. We want to show diversity and polyphony in thinking about Polish society.
In somatic and movement layer we gonna use the physicality, technical capabilities and charisma of the dancers, to highlight the issues of the performance to the audience. Crossing the boundaries of physicality and at the same time conducting a dialogue with the audience are very strong dominants of this project. We want to use all possible means of expression that the human body is able to create in order to present the recipient with the full spectrum of psychophysical impressions. The performance will be a kind of laboratory for transposing the language of the Gaga movement into the language of communicating with the viewer in the space of Polish dance theater and new dance contemporary.
Physical ArtHouse acts under Marek Zadluzny's artistic guidance in Zielona Gora, Poland. It is a platform of people who work creatively from the range of dance theatre and physical dance. We create space focusing makers whose artistic researches concentrate on performative arts and physicality in scenic activities.
The aesthetic of ensemble juxtaposes the trends of minimalism and organic movement characteristic for physical theater and selected contemporary dance techniques. In parallel it is based on the foundation of structural improvisation, which constitutes the original, dynamic and strong style of choreographies created by the ensemble. The performances are always the result of creative, collective collaboration and combine different languages of communication through the art. The repertoire group has been presenting its performances at many prestigious art festivals in Poland and abroad for ten years.
In 2016, Physical ArtHouse was recognized by „Theater Journal” as one of the most promising independent theatre group. Physical ArtHouse, as the only artistic group from the Lubuskie Province, was selected for the Polish Dance Chronicle, which is an initiative of the Polish Institute of Music and Dance.
