Dance MomWojciech Grudziński
Dance Mom by Wojciech Grudziński features a scrupulous, sensitive economist (the daughter of a military man and an accountant) with 40 years of work experience dancing with three artists, including her own son. Family histories and autobiographical motifs referred to in the performance will serve as a canvas for phenomenal stories about a mother and son, goddess and idol, fragments separating themselves from the whole, the start and the end, that which is made conscious and unconscious, the young and the old. The performance will summon the forces life is made of, drawing upon the sources of fertility in order to look at time as it slips away, the first story emerging from the relationship between mother and son – comical, trivial and incredible, wondrous and useful, wise and dumb.
