Monika Witkowska from Poland danced to present the terrible political situation in her country, especially the attempt to tighten the abortion law, for which she received public applause. Susanne Wolke in Donau Post
The solo piece “I fought Piranhas” by the Polish choreographer and company director Maciej Kuźmiński was read like a feminist statement, danced viciously and with defiant anger by Monika Witkowska. Read whole review in German by Michael Scheiner from Mittelbayerishe Zeitung.
The award-winning solo performance for Monika Witkowska will be one of the program’s points at the Charity Gala in German Regensburg.
Solo I fought Piranhas will be presented at the Studio Theater in Warsaw as part of the 30th Scene Dance Studio platform. Come see us @ the Studio Theater on 30 October. More information about the event under this link (in Polish)

We are very happy to announce that we got a Production Prize by Theater Regensburg Tanz for I Fought Piranhas, awarded by the director Yuki Mori.
Selected out of over 300 entries from all over the world the solo show I Fought Piranhas pictures a woman tackling sexist social stereotypes.
Witkowska performs dynamic choreography with technical precision, energy and commitment. The heroine’s internal opposition to the situation is palpable, and the will to fight has authenticity, which makes the whole convincing. Read the in-depth whole review in Polish by Weronika Łucyk
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.
