PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE
Eva & eva.
Caught between two clouds
In one of the situations when one discovers
That something obviously good and flawless
May have evil intentions
One sees Jesus and piranias on her back
Lazy flies in the cars who don't want to move by themselves
The other has beautiful legs - a steel construction painted with enamel
She goes inside in the calf and travels to the mouth
They don't have to die to hang out in paradise.
Martyna Lorenc, born in 1987 in Poznań. Completed master studies in cognitive science at UAM Poznań and contemporary dance and pedagogy studies at Anton Bruckner University in Linz, Austria. As a dancer and performer worked with a.o.: C.O.V. Company Off Verticality/Rose Breuss, Rosalind Crisp, Georg Blaschke, Editta Braun, David Zambrano. Co-created a couple of performances: „Unreasonable behavior” with composer Lorenzo Romano, „Beton” with Hygin Delimat, Polina Stoyanova and Ivan Shopov, „What you see is what you get” with Rafał Pierzyński.
Since 2013 she's been part of a research initiated by Gaja Karolczak on phantomic sensation, developed further together with Gaja Karolczak and Marysia Zimpel in the frame of Visegrad Artist Residency Program in Budapest. The findings of the research inspire the newest work, „Phantom of the paradise”.
