„Zaplatanie naszych słonecznych splotów razem to szczyt moich marzeń” was a secular folk rave ritual public performance. Centered around the metaphor of braiding it was an invitation for reimagining meaningful and intimate co-presence with the human and non-human world. Over 20 dancers were joined by live musicians to create a continuous hypnotic piece that draws from the contemporary dance vocabularies, traditional Eastern European folk songs and dances, communal ceremonies or outdoor pandemic parties. The performance was staged around a large-scale textile sculpture produced especially for the occasion at Rixdorfer Höhe, a postwar rubble hill in the Hasenheide Park in Berlin on 16.10.2022.
The performance was a collaboration between: Ewelina Węgiel – camera and editing Jess Zamora-Turner – textile sculpture Monika Błaszczak – choreography Wojciech Kosma – lyrics and music Digital saxophone: Hansol Kim Dancers: Adrianna Metryka, Alek Sarna, Anastasia Freygang, Antek Lisowski, Constança Saturnino, Dawid Dzwonkowski, Elena Cattardico, Flupsi Upsi, Fox Conner, Francesca Sacchi, Georgia Weaver, Giada Grieco, Hannah Wallace, Jagoda Skawska, Jirmeja Pattianakotta, Josephine Auffray, Katarzyna Kałuska, Klaudia Katarzyna Lech, Lukas Geschwind, Magdalena Przybylska, Maria Salwińska, Marta Rzepecka, Marta Stepien, Martyna Łapaj, Mia Kordova, Nina Żółtańska, Ruby Stenerson and Sophia Estel Drone footage: Nizam Ergil
