Open class with ROZBARK DANCE AND MOVEMENT THEATER
Rozbark Theater, Bytom (PL)
BYTOM’S ROZBARK DANCE AND MOVEMENT THEATER, as the name says, unites five important elements – it combines and intertwines the fields of theater, dance, and movement, being an institution of the city of Bytom, located in the Rozbark district. One of the assets that allows us to develop our activities is the headquarters of the institution – the unique building of the guildhall of the Rozbark mine. Our mission is to bring the art of dance to audiences through various forms, from festivals and residencies to educational and social programs designed to animate mainly the local environment, while creating one of the most important places on the dance map of Poland.
Rozbark Theatre uses the categories of dance and theater, in which character study emerges from an intellectual process, creative fantasy and through complex physical movement work. The theater’s company, operating under the artistic direction of Anna Piotrowska, consists of Joanna Brodniak, Katarzyna Zioło, Kamil Bończyk, Alexey Torgunakov, Julia Lewandowska, Daniel Zych. Based on Piotrowska’s proprietary methods of working with the body, the artists develop individualized movement and an open structure, combining body matter, words and exploration of space.
