Dir Antonina Konopelska
The artist's encounter with Grzegorz Kowalski takes place in an unusual space of tango – Libertango. The linguistic contamination was introduced by Ástor Piazzolla in the title of his famous composition from 1974. The piece, containing a very important component: la libertad, crossed the boundaries of classical tango by entering the area of tango nuevo. Grzegorz Kowalski, the artists' former professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, allowed her to take our relationship to the new territory. As he stated: 'The hierarchical student-professor relationship in the educational process has always bothered me. In my opinion, the main obstacle in reaching more intimate layers, in communicating and coming to a shared understanding, is banning us from touching each other. The belief that it is inappropriate. That the professor must not touch the student, that the student must not pat the professor on the back – all this impairs our communication by depriving it of a very important aspect. Hence, Antonina’s idea that now, when we are no longer subject to this appropriateness and hierarchy, we can do something like that really appealed to me. Thanks to that I can enter the sphere that was not used by me when  Antonina was my student.'.   Antonina Konopelska (1990)  — multimedia artist based in Poland. The core of her artistic experiments and research is contact. She is also interested in sound and movement and their impact on individuals and group.

Performance of Honorata Martin
I do not want to describe what I'll do, because maybe if I see you I will not do it. Or maybe I want to do nothing, but I won’t do nothing because I want to do something when I face someone. Although there is a chance that I won’t face anyone, that I will lay down or run away. I don’t want to describe the problem I'm going to deal with, because I want to do in a way that will make you understand it differently, or understand it the same way, but not because I'll explain it. If I’m in a good mood, I will bake cookies, so maybe it's worth coming. I’m still thinking about it though.
