BIOS:

Aleksandra Bożek-Muszyńska is a Poland based dancer, choreographer,
performer, contemporary dance instructor, business coach, philologist,
participant of many workshops and coachings. In 2017, together with Hanna
Bylka-Kanecka, she founded the Holobiont collective, whose goal is
interdisciplinary multi-generation projects. In everyday life, she is
constantly looking for opportunities to improvise.

 

Magda Jędra is a dancer, choreographer, and performer. Her foregoing works
have a strong affinity to performance art and the site-specific approach.
She likes to combine different styles and mix tools

characteristic for what is referred to as "pop culture" and "highbrow
culture". In her work she likes to use kitsch and irony. She often makes use
of texts. She believes that working on a piece is an act of

subjecting oneself to creative process. She considers improvisation to be
foundation in this process.
