What is this strange shell that represents our temporary existence on earth? BODIY by Ernestyna Orlowska, winner of the PREMIO award 2018, tackles the phenomenology of body parts as potential poetic material. Four performers morph into surrealist beings, underlining, dissecting, freeing their bodies and questioning the relationship between themselves and the audience. A dreamlike and playful show, at the crossroads of installation, sculpture and dance, where bodies, freed from social norms, offer a fertile ground for new forms of existence and thought.
