In his book: “24/7 Late capitalism and the end of sleep”, Jonathan Crary points to sleeping and dreaming being the last resorts of humans independence, spheres that resist capitalism. By the marketed reality they are pronounced obsolete, while they actually allow us to make sense of things, understand what we need, and to re-orientate.
We are actually dreaming all the time.
The creative work I propose will specifically focus on becoming awake to the ongoing dreaming process that is accompanying our conscious existence, allowing this continuous flow of sensations, feelings and images to in-form the body, influence its presence and become the source of actions. We will also work on participants’ night dreams, engaging with their flow, plunging into their unique realities in order to fish out treasures of new potential. We will closely observe the way dreams are composed, and use their structure as a kaleidoscopic map for creativity.
The aim of the process is to combine intuitive ways of creating with conscious choreographic decisions, and to empower performers to connect with their dreaming as a legible source of knowledge and foundation for creativity.
Anna Nowicka is a choreographer and performer, MA psychology graduate at the Warsaw University, Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance, and MA Choreography at the HfS Ernst-Busch / HZT in Berlin. In recent years, expanding on her long term interest in the work on dreams, imagination and physical actions, she started developing tools to be applied to artistic creation. Her focus lies on questions of imagination and creativity,
and the potential of images to expand the body into the state of continuous becoming. Since 2011 Anna's research has been recognized: she was rewarded the DAAD Prize, followed by the choreographic scholarship from the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes and Tanzstipendium from the city of Berlin. Her performance: “fire is raging in your hair” won the 100GRAD Festival in HAU, Berlin, and her solo: “the truth is just a plain picture. said bob.” was selected for the Polish Dance Platform. Since 2010 her individual choreographic practice is connected with the Art Stations Foundation by Grażyna Kulczyk in Poznań. Currently, Anna is about to defend her practice based PhD at the Polish Film School / Acting Department in Łódź, and is a practitioner at the School of Images of dr Catherine Shainberg. Anna is expanding her research through intense dreamwork with Bonnie Buckner. She weaves her life between Berlin and Poland.
