“In this work every element – choreography, performance, sense of space and timing – reaches independently a very high level ” - A. Z. Kowalczyk, Lublin Courier

Repetition, a visual essay about transitions of identity, questions the essence of repetition itself. The work, with it's complex composition formed by recurring themes, begs a question - is repetition possible at all? As in Bergman's "Persona", here also the differences and similarities between two women seem to blur, to later become visible in detail.

There is also another layer to Kuźmiński's work - a search for his own choreographic identity, seen through the lens of comparison and recycle. In Repetition a complicated choreographic score demands from the performers a near-impossible level of concentration, which is known from Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker's work. "Thinking is a game of difference and repetition" says Deleuze.

Difference and Repetition form a full-length double bill evening of radically different, yet complimentary pieces, inspired by Gilles Deleuze's magnum opus - "Difference and Repetition".
