Grupa Artystyczna Koncentrat

8 Nov | 11am – 1pm | SK Centrum Kultury

The group was founded in 2005 in Warsaw as a creative collective associating two choreographers and dancers, Anka Jankowska (co-founder of TRAVA Theatre Group) and Rafał Dziemidok, as well as lighting designer Ewa Garniec. Up until 2008 the group worked in its original line-up, producing five premieres, adapted Rafał Dziemidok’s 2004 solo performance Dirty Pink, and developed an improvised project 3 x I do not know (Dziemidok, Garniec). The Group’s premieres include: 2moreless (Dziemidok/Jankowska, 2005; presented on DVD at the Polish Dance Platform 2008), Potańcówka (with the participation of tango enthusiasts, 2006), Tell me I look divine (Dziemidok/Jankowska, 2006), Nawrotnik (Magdalena Jędra’s solo, 2007), Rabbit, Heath and Riding Contest (Dziemidok’s solo, 2008, presented at the Polish Dance Platform 2008). Since 2009 the group has been led by Rafał Dziemidok, with Ewa Garniec as lighting, stage and costume designer. The pair has produced: Floe (in collaboration with Nicole Seiler; named one of Top 10 best choreographies by Aerowaves, 2010); Nut. Squirrel (choreography created in collaboration with Jacek Owczarek, dance: Piotr Chudzicki, Rafał Dziemidok, Magdalena Jędra, Agnieszka Noster, Krzysztof Skolimowski, Aleksandra Ścibor, 2010); and Lamentation (a multidisciplinary project bringing together languages of theatre, opera and dance, 2012). In 2013 Koncentrat premiered My Life in Tears (created as part of a residency programme run by the Institute of Music and Dance in association with Mica Moca Project Berlin and Uferstudios). Currently, the pair collaborates with a group of international artists on Peter and the Wolf. Reinterpretation (shown as work in progress at the 2nd VarSoVie Festival).
