To the Aching Parts! (Manifesto)

Ania Nowak’s expanded choreographic practice approaches vulnerability and desire as ways towards reimagining what bodies and language can do. Her overall inquiry is into the political dimension of the body material and its immaterial aspects —affects, feelings and intuition— to think of new, embodied practices of care, and companionship. She is especially interested in the latter when taking into account the experience of aging, sickness, and grief, as well as, the ethics of pleasure in times of climate and political urgency.
