ROOM 40

MACIEJ KUŹMIŃSKI COMPANY

Room 40 perfectly bridges concept and beauty – Lucy Ribchester / Dance Tabs UK

A poetic and moving work, with a delightful lighting design and a sensual choreography – Anna Duda / Reflektor Teatralny

The work allows different images to emerge. Seemingly disparate scenes connect, taking the spectator on a journey from total involvement to self-awareness, from a small dance of muscle spasms to virtuosic movement driven by intention. Using the state of tiredness, Maciej Kuźmiński showcases dancers’ virtuosity, and casts a critical eye at tradition, undermining established theatrical conventions. Balancing between forms, the piece is both provocative and moving.

Room 40 received an Audience Award at the Polish Dance Platform 2014, attended by over 300 international curators, producers and critics in Lublin, Poland

The many foreign dance representatives and journalists, who attended the Polish Dance Platform in Lublin, were impressed by Maciej Kuźmiński’s choreography and the rawness of the performance itself.

Joost Goutziers, DANS Magazine

Room 40 is a unique work, not offering us an easy reception, yet phenomenally beautiful, built on subtle movement, speaking about our shared experience in a universal, metaphorical way.
