About This Project

Short film “Podworko” (En. “Courtyard”, 6’28, Poland, UK 2009) represents a moment in which everything collapses and we are convicted to the infirmity of waiting. It is a pause between running and running, where the feeling of failure is expressed in dialogs and movement as an attempt to use the language of dance in everyday life situations.

“Podworko” was screened at international film, video dance and video art festivals.
