Plateau’s “epic breadth”

A great review of the first foreign performance of Plateau. Thomas Linden in Koelnische Rundschau writes

With epic breadth, but also with many great images, with a cleverly ironic text and a well-rehearsed ensemble that moves like an oiled machine, the spectator is offered a concentrated dose of dance theatre performance.

“a cosmopolitan bigos” – Plateau review

a cosmopolitan bigos, deconstructing national symbols, mocking lofty values and great ideals, and at the same time spiced with British humor. […] The performes have no easy task, but they cope well with the demanding scenario – both dance and acting wise.

Magdalena Mirkut-Majeranek reviews "Plateau" for the Theatre Daily. Read the whole review in Polish

Piranhas “the most interesting statement” of Gdańsk Dance Festival

definitely the most interesting is the statement by Monika Witkowska, addressing an important topic (calling it "feminist" would be another condemnation to the sex ghetto, a universal problem), verbal message enriching with a strong, expressive, consciously non-defective movement.

Mirosław Baran after Gdańsk Dance Festival.

Difference and Repetition – review by Hanna Raszewska

“Each part of the diptych could function as an independent whole, being a bodily representation of philosophical considerations. Yet together they successfully form a coherent performance, where the three performers differ enough, to make the repetition intriguing.” – Hanna Raszewska
