Akademia Ruchu


„Akademia Ruchu, one of the most well-known groups in Poland, has been working on the border of theatre, visual art and performance since 1973. „Visual narrative with elements of image and movement theatre coupled with projects conducted in public space and the associated aesthetic transformation of the everyday constitute fundamental aspects of their artistic practice.

»Clinic.Exit.« (Performance)

Driving beats, film credits rolling from bottom to top, a voice from off-stage promising eternal happiness. What controls the group seated around the rotating propellor, its wings barely missing their masked heads? Desire or fear? Execution, therapy, clandestine sect, terrorist commando or group search for the ultimate kick? Can you get it in the middle of a grotesque Marilyn Monroe caricature? The images of „Clinic.Exit. are full of visual and
atmospheric surprises, of cool beauty and it is as unnervingly precise as the cut of a scalpel. A culturally critical statement on the new global order, in which personality must continually correct itself in order to successfully compete.
