I never fall apart, because I never fall together is a solo in which Anna Nowicka attempts to construct a mobile (movable, mutable) self-portrait that cannot be captured and fixed. In this constant coalescing and falling apart, she unveils the rip through which various individual and collective memories, beliefs, expectations, lies, dreams, promises and clichés flow to the surface of the body. The body becomes a battlefield for our various identities: an unstable place that is constantly transformed.
ANNA NOWICKA studied dance at the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance (SEAD) and at Ernst-Busch/HZT, Berlin. She also majored in psychology at the University of Warsaw. Her artistic explorations focus on the relationship between the dreaming and the dancing body, and in particular, on the choreography of the imagined. Anna Nowicka holds numerous accolades and grants. Her show fire is raging in your hair won the HAU 100 GRAD Festival, Berlin (2012), whilst her solo truth is just a plain picture. said bob featured in the Polish Dace Platform 2012 and will be shown at the Edinburgh Festival in August 2014.
