In the frame of Open Spaces#1-2017

Tanzfabrik Berlin has continuously made it possible for emerging international artists from the apap network to work in Berlin within the framework of a residency.
Currently, there are two Polish artists, Ramona Nagabczynska and Karol Tyminski, in Berlin, who, after having recently completed their studies in a strictly classic form, now seek a confrontation with contempo-rary techniques. Ramona Nagabcynska's new work deals with science fiction, fantasy, transhumanism and other utopian impulses which channel current political anxieties and desires. Instead of turning back towards bodies as representation she explores the various levels of projection that a choreographic situation, as opposed to a literary situation, can hold. The radical choreographer Karol seeks a possible self beyond the boundaries mandated by culture.

By Ramona Nagabczynska and Karol Tyminski. This work is developed with Magda Jędra, Karolina Kraczkowska (performers) and Anka Herbut (dramaturge). In cooperation with Tanzfabrik Berlin, supported by Regierender Bürgermeister von Berlin – Senatskanzlei – Kulturelle Angelegenheiten and apap-Performing Europe 2020, co-funded by Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.

Karol Tyminski

Karol Tymiński is a Polish choreographer/performer based in Berlin, co-founder of Center in Motion - Choreographers Workspace in Warsaw. He graduated from P.A.R.T.S. in year 2006 and previously from Warsaw Ballet School. Tymiński in his works deviates from formal aspects and focuses on the explorations of the human body on the very physical level, making it the source of the choreographic material. He aims to speak about human condition, reaching the emotional side of the performer by penetrating his physicality what was demonstrated in his earlier pieces such as „Doll House” (2011) „Beep” (2013) „Pussy” (2014) „Liminal” (2015) - commissioned by Icelandic Dance Company or „This is a musical” (2015).
