DOROTA POROWSKA
Warsaw, May 2013
Interactive digital work composed of photos, videos, drawings

In Praga I tried to establish contact and cooperation with the local youth. I meant to create a labyrinth in any possible way, as a metaphor of a mechanism which shapes the reality and the biography/psychological processes of an individual. The chosen method was learning acrobatic evolutions used in theater, containing a risk element and based on teamwork.

The work ended with a brief show in a backyard on Brzeska Street 15/17. While waiting for the dusk, the children were playing on the labyrinth painted on the ground. With the teenagers we did acrobatic evolutions along a mobile wall made of plastic foil, in the mist and flashlight glow. The adults were admiring. After two hours everyone reluctantly went separate ways.
