DOMINIQUE

MACIEJ KUŹMIŃSKI COMPANY

The word feminism should be enriched in such way, to include also men.

Dominique is a powerful socio-political statement, coherent on every level, […] delivered in a layered way, which allows it to be accessible to more than just dance audience.

Hanna Raszewska review for Gdańsk Dance Festival

Dominique, which started as a collaboration between Maciej Kuźmiński and Dominik Więcek, brought the artists 13 awards and distinctions at multiple international choreographic contests, together with international invitations and commissions.

Dominique is an example of a excellently constructed critical choreography, which strength lies not in the poetics of shock or excess, but in a smart wit brilliantly performed by Dominik Więcek.

One of the few solos, that touched on a serious subject – the fragility of identity, and played it with humour

Brigitte Jähnigen, Stuttgarter Nachrichten

The whole gives an excellent impression. [..] This work appears as more than just a solo made for a competition, it is a coherent monodrama, which could well find it’s way into a theatre repertoire

Weronika Łucyk review in taniecPOLSKA.pl

Dominique is a coherent and well thought through show, which consequently – often with a good dose of humour – analyses notions of man and womanhood
