”Dancing For You Longer Than One Minute” constitutes a dialogue between the dancer and director which familiarizes us with Kozak’s story, favourite styles, fascinations and aesthetics of dance. It is an intimate story in which her own biography is told through references to classic performances of contemporary dance (by, among others, Pina Bausch and Jérôme Bel). It is also a reflection upon the search for means of expression of modern dance in Poland and Europe, the evidence for emancipation of a contemporary woman and dancer in the world of stereotypes enforced by men as well as a protest against social roles and beauty standards imposed upon her. Kozak’s monodrama directed by Roland Rowiński corresponds with the trend of the self-reflective dance.
Edyta Kozak, a former soloists of the Teatr Wielki in Warsaw, returned on stage after a couple of years’ break during which she focused on developing and invigorating the Polish dance scene. This performance, enthusiastically received by the critics and viewers alike, was distinguished in “the best performance” category and selected “the Surprise of 2008” by the critics in a survey of the NowyTaniec.PL web portal, and also became the inspiration for Roland Rowiński’s film titled “Dancing 4U”.
This performance is a part of the project “Trilogy of Dance”. The presentation of the project is supported by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland and Adam Mickiewicz Institute.
