Kasia Wolinska is a dancer, choreographer and writer. In her artistic practice deals with political and historic dimensions of dancing, studying both theory and discourses. But first and foremost, her practice centres around techniques and methods of moving, positioning her own dancing body as a continuously transforming composite of forms, sensations, affects and stories. She believes in the value of transnational and interspecies solidarity; in dancing as a practice of knowledge and resistance; and in the necessity of a perpetual socialist and feminist struggle for the sake of collective liberation and realization of the post-war utopia. Kasia Wolinska also dedicated herself to developing discourse and methods around good work culture in dance, which is an ongoing process of critical reflection and practice in the Berlin scene and beyond. She is currently a proud member of the systering collective.
During the residency at Radialsystem she engages with the realm of religion and dance: an attempt to experience the movement of spirits, to touch the sacred space and time, and to rejuvenate her relation to dancing beyond the demands of the art market and towards an act of dancing as communion – with the whole of oneself and the worlds of others. Departing from the iconic Pink Floyd concert at Pompeii (1972) and Los Jaivas concert at Machu Picchu (1981), and together with invited scholars, dramaturges, artists and spiritual practitioners, she dives into the space where sound and movement intermingle, incite transgressions, and allow for joy, rage and mourning.
Open Body Practice
During the last week of her Body Time Space residency at Radialsystem, Kasia Wolinska invites movement practitioners to two morning sessions which will be centred around her tireless interest in dancing and its technical, sensorial, historical, and spiritual dimensions.
