The aim of the workshops is working with the notion of Polishness and the image of Poland abroad, based on associations and a deconstruction of stereotypes. The assignments, covering dance and acting, will be suggested by a choreographer and director Maćko Pusak, whose work crosses the borders of several arts: drama, modern dance and performance art. We wish to look at the topic of Polishness form different points of view: the Polish people, living both in the country and abroad, as well as foreigners.

 We would like to invite professional dancers and actors. The attendance is free. The number of attendees is limited. Please send your application along with a rationale (in English) no later than 12th September

 We will give the enrolment results by 15th September. The work-in-progress show of the workshop will take place on 25th September.
