Best of BE 2017: 21 APRIL – 8 MAY Be Festival

Everything we were (not) born with – KIJO Group (Poland)

Three dancers wander an unknown yet inevitable path of isolation and connection, cross-fading between childlike curiosity and methodical cruelty. A sparse, forensic examination of the internal and external boundaries of the human body and identity, where our own sense of self is cast in an ongoing conflict with the desires of others.

Founded in Lodz in 2010, Kijo Group’s creative collaborative process draws on elements improvisation, contemporary dance, physical theatre and martial arts practices.
