REPETITION

MACIEJ KUŹMIŃSKI COMPANY

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.

Repetition is the second 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. Repetition, selected out of nearly 700 applications, represented Poland at the biggest international dance fair Tanzmesse NRW in Düsseldorf, Germany in 2016

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

Adam Z. Kowalczyk, Lublin Courier

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.
