Kem Care presents a new work by Zuzanna Ratajczyk "Bless This Place".
In this choreography, the all female group of performers exercise ways of belonging, relating and producing a space together. "Bless This Place" organises and frames a community through bodily experience. Using expanded choreography and installation the performance manipulates its immediate space and time into a non linear, queer timeline of female affinity.
Performers - Ewa Dziarnowska, Josephine Findeisen, Garazi Valmaseda
