The Per-sona pulsates between the voice of the body and the body of the voice, between the (in)visible and the (in)audible. As it listens to the sound of the voice, both its materiality and elusiveness, it places the body’s sonic signature. The boundaries between what is inside and outside are blurred. The voice is a presence that goes beyond the body and penetrates spaces; a force that unites sensuality and intimacy; a dynamic vibrating in pleasure, ugliness, beauty and madness, in the familiar and the unknown.
Katarzyna Sitarz is a freelance dancer, performer, choreographer. Fascinated by the multi-layered (un)consciousness of the body she travels through sensory, polyphonic worlds, seeking for ephemeral vocal phenomena. She deepens the secrets of traditional singing, Slavic white voice in particular, which she also explores in her performative activities. The essence of presence and collectivism is a subject of her intense preoccupation. Sitarz regularly creates and performs in Europe, guesting also in Brazil, Argentina, USA, Canada and Asia. Thanks to Tanja Liedtke Fellowship she travelled to Australia to conduct her artistic research for “home project” and collaborate with Lucy Guerin. Nominated for The Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative she had a pleasure to work with Trisha Brown. A recipient of an Artistic Scholarship from the Ministry of Culture and Education in The Netherlands and Poland as well as danceWEB 2010 at the ImPulsTanz Festival in Vienna. For her previous work Sitarz received awards at 11th International Solo Dance Theater Festival in Stuttgart and 8th Solo International Festival in Budapest. She studied Slavic Philology at Wratislavia University, Poland and Dance and Choreography at Codarts/Rotterdam Dance Academy, The Netherlands. She participated in the first edition of an Intensive Training in Experimental Physical Performance –SMASH Berlin.
