In her new solo I never fall apart, because i never fall together Anna Nowicka attempts to construct a mobile (movable, mutable) self-portrait that fails to be captured and fixed. In this constant becoming she unveils a rip through which an agglomerate of a fragments that define us flows in. Individual and collective memories, beliefs, expectations, lies, dreams, promises, clichés and second hand experiences that shape body as a site of a struggle. A push out of a comfort zone, a search for a change and parade of trust. This performance of instability welcomes the inevitable fall, which brakes the representational pattern and opens the void in which self faces the multitude without desire to grab and hold.
ANNA NOWICKA studied dance at the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance (SEAD) and at Ernst-Busch/HZT, Berlin. She also majored in psychology at the University of Warsaw. Her artistic explorations focus on the relationship between the dreaming and the dancing body, and in particular, on the choreography of the imagined. Anna Nowicka holds numerous accolades and grants. Her show fire is raging in your hair won the HAU 100 GRAD Festival, Berlin (2012), whilst her solo truth is just a plain picture. said bob featured in the Polish Dace Platform 2012 and will be shown at the Edinburgh Festival in August 2014.
