“A mutual training” (a fragment of a review of the “Catwalk” performance at the Kaleidoscope Festival in Białystok by Monika Żmijewska)
“Catwalk”, a performance by Zawirowania Dance Theatre with choreography by Karolina Kroczak, was quite funny. A duet of exceptional dancers led the audience through life, interpersonal relations, relationships with partners full of addictions and mutual training. Using various dance concepts – dance stylised into gestures presented on a catwalk – they showed something that is invisible in everyday life, something that is present among two people – a network of addictions, dependencies, gestures, tricks and ruses.”

The Zawirowania Dance Theatre was founded in 2004 under auspices of Scena Współczesna Foundation [Contemporary Stage Foundation]. Zawirowania was founded by Włodzimierz Kaczkowski, and Elwira Piorun, a former soloist in the Grand Theatre, was an artistic director. Currently, the core of the Dance Theatre comprises: Elwira Piorun, Karolina Kroczak, Bartosz Figurski and Szymon Osiński. Since the very beginning of their existence, the Zawirowania Dance Theatre has not only actively participated in culture-creating processes in the country, but they have also presented their performances at festivals around the world, from our European neighbours, to Asia, Africa and both Americas.
