In 1937, the Polish government sent an expedition to Madagascar to explore the possibilities of colonising the island.

Premiere: 09.01.2019 Play duration: 1 hour

The expedition was supported by the Maritime and Colonial League, closely linked to the Polish authorities, and promoted the slogan: like every free nation, Poland deserves to have its own colonies. However, Madagascar never became a Polish colony.

In 1920, an informal conference of dance teachers in London created a new style: modern ball-room dance. The dances of the enslaved communities of Brazil, Haiti and Cuba were codified and became a popular entertainment for the upper middle class. Over time, samba, cha-cha, rumba, paso doble and jive became the ballroom Latin American dances and are still performed at dance competitions.

Paweł Sakowicz is a choreographer and dancer. He graduated from the University of Warsaw with a degree in political studies and holds an MA in performance and choreography from the London Contemporary Dance School. For a few years, he has been working with various artists, curators and theatre makers across Europe. His works include Bernhard, TOTAL, Jumpcore and Thriller and they were presented during two editions of the Polish Dance Platform, NYU Skirball and CAC New Orleans amongst others.
