  • The main theme of MaMa Perform is motherhood, social and cultural representations connected with it, and, above all, the personal experiences of the participating women – mothers. Maria Stokłosa used all of these to build a series of ambiguous images in which amusing, sacred and vulgar elements, as well as everyday banalities, play equal roles. We see real women, their worries, questions and dreams about how it could be.




  • Choreography: Marysia Stokłosa
    Artistic collaboration, performed by: Agata Brzozowicz, Katarzyna Dańska, Magdalena Drągowska-Romaszkan, Marzena Jazowska, Małgorzata Remiarz, Jolanta Sambor, Monika Trąbińska, Wilejka Zagórowska, Natalia Żuchowska
    Light Design: Michał Głaszczka
    Coordination: Wilejka Zagórowska

    In 2014, MaMa Perform is a beneficiary of the Institute of Music and Dance as part of the programme Scena dla Tańca [Stage for Dance].

    The following works were used in the show: Bedbugs by Brooks and Mamacita by Outkast. The fragment of a fairly tale comes from the book A moonless night by Shira Geffen and Etgar Keret.

  • MARIA STOKŁOSA (born 1981) graduated in choreography from the School for New Dance Development (SNDO) of Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in Amsterdam and from the contemporary dance department of London Contemporary Dance School at The Place. She says: “Dance can be a pleasure, rather than aiming at excellence. [...] For me dance is a purely physical pleasure, but also a space for processing emotions and difficult life experiences. When the body relaxes, people can do extraordinary things. Many fears and other limitations disappear, you dance effortlessly, become more creative, you can sing in a full voice, even if you don’t know how.”
