Zawirowania Dance Theatre | Poland

Zawirowania Dance Theatre is being created in 2004 by qualified ballet dancers and independent artists, who have gained their skills during internships and workshops of the contemporary Dance. Synthesis of different experiences of the dancers brings the original scene effect and expands creational possibilities of their theatre. The group creates performances that aim at showing emotions through movement. The leader of the team is Elwira Piorun, ex – soloist of the Grand Theatre in Warsaw ballet. Zawirowania Dance Theatre is the organizing the Middle Europe Dance Theatres Festival.

Daniel Abreu develops his personal style and language of dance which is created in his different choreographies. He analyses in detail movement, mixing it with other ways of expression like photography, theatre. His performances are usually very economical, minimalistic set underlines the role of light and movement. The point of reference is always movement itself and communicating with its help. It is an alphabet thanks to which a unique language of Daniel Abreu is created.

The starting point of the performance are body and movement. Each dancer acts individually, although the space is common. Each of them tell their own story and the audience decides who is who and what relationship between the characters is. Sense of stage activities is created by viewers. Their presence makes dancers take postures that strive for communication and have certain meanings. They are out of reach, they can be watched but they can’t be influenced in such a way that would change the meaning of images. Dance is a method of reaching beyond the surface, to the sense and meaning of relationships, which can be noticed only from the outside.
