Church of Non-Divine

apap production studio berlin · Premiere by Karol Tyminski
In the frame of Open Spaces/Sommer Tanz 2017

Just after Science killed God we went dancing. We sweated out the doctrines, shook of the normatives, stomped on the old believes. We were meat and bones. We were clashing against each other, taking shapes which normally didn’t belong to our bodies. Blood rushed through our veins like they were highways which could take us to places we didn’t know. Heads about to explode, the world almost falling apart. Science and I would have a chia pudding and she will try to explain it all to me. We would open a church where we would let people get together to shatter the self as they know it.

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).
