A mystic encounter with the forces that build universe. The silhouette of a non-human. What is a king ? Who or What do you surrender to ?

Molimo is a journey in search of the other through legends and myths.

Line, Grzegorz Myjkowski, POOL 18

The main character of „LINE“, an 83 years old Mrs Krystyna, is a mathematician and a teacher. A sensitive to art person that is at all times searching and wanting to discover. Krystyna has a stroke-induced aphasia – a disorder of language functions which impedes the process of translating thoughts into words resulting in disordered communication. The same process of translating thoughts, feelings and sensations but into a form of movement, is however fluid. Krystyna’s communication through movement is uninterrupted, clear and precise. Paradoxically it becomes an extremely eloquent language in itself, a dance.

Krystyna’s movement presented in „LINE“ were inspired by the famous choreographic passage of Pina Bausch: Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, from „Nelken” (1982).
