AGATA MASZKIEWICZ, VINCENT TIRMARCHESTILL LIFE
French with English and Polish surtitles
What was the first thing you bought? Is there something you would like to pass on? If you were a Pharaoh, what thing would you like to be buried with?
Still life is a piece that focuses on our relation with objects and things. In a performance-long interview, Agata Maszkiewicz together with Vincent Tirmarche bring into life the stories of Jenny, Marco, Alex and Emmy.
As a response to that, a dancer on stage is dealing with the surrounding, the nature of things and death. Avoiding the real presence of any object on stage, she plays with the notions of becoming, adjusting, discovering, appearing, redoing, creating. Her body replays, acts, repeats, gets still, restarts, rests. The dance choreographed together with costumes, the light, the sound and the videos, manages to create a still-life in itself.
