Renata Piotrowska – Auffret

As long as we dance

The performace’s point of departure is the current pandemic situation we find ourselves in, which gave death more than just one fatal meaning. The pandemia has thrown social death upon us, changed our habits and usurped all our attention. The performance As Long as We Dance is a revolt – a revolt of those, who are or were in the most complicated of situations – that is, women and mothers. The feminist dimension of the performance guarantees that As Long as We Dance is not merely a product of this particularly extreme period of our time, but a universally valid image of our society. Dance is the major narrative tool, although the general concept of the performance is multigenre, radically employs spoken word and distinctively artistic stage setting.
