Marta Ziółek (PL): MAKE YOURSELF

MAKE YOURSELF starts with a training, an order and a body sculpture.

The subject of this experiment is a group of 5 performers. For the time of the performance they put on the following names: High Speed, Coco, Lordi, Glow and Beauty. Marta Ziółek as Angel Dust serves as a moderator and a guide through the experience. We are somewhere between a gym, a techno party and a corporate church of mindfulness.

MAKE YOURSELF is a utopian structure, which creates its own style, language and sexuality. It is a kind of a trip, which transmutes a body into a machine. Here, the very individual monologues blend with a hybrid group workout and a trance practice consisting of rave, kundalini yoga, latino flow and dancehall.

MAKE YOURSELF is a gang which creates and transforms itself to the music by Lutto Lento.
