Maciej Kuźmiński Company

The work gives an intimate insight into imaginary world of an individual re-defining his own self. “Identity does not begin, nor does it end” says a voice quoting Deleuze, as Kuźmiński searches for the independent artistic and movement style. This self-performed dance monodrama stuns with the beauty of it’s set and lighting design, created by a visual artist Michał Mackiewicz.

Difference is the first part of diptych Difference and Repetition which forms a full-length double bill evening of radically different, yet complimentary pieces. Inspired by Gilles Deleuze’s magnum opus – Difference and Repetition was Kuźmiński’s first full-length work.

      • In this work every element – choreography, performance, sense of space and timing – reaches independently a very high level


      • Each part of the diptych could function as an independent work, becoming a bodily manifestation of philosophical considerations. Combined, however, they form a succesfull whole, and the three performers differ enough, so that the repetition does not become boring, but on the contrary – alluring.
