I consider dance as the most honest way of expression. As a constant journey towards freedom.
My name is Bartek Woszczynski and I am a dancer and choreographer who works as an independent artist in several countries. I have choreographed a number of pieces for various companies like “Symetria” for Alternatywny Teatr Tanca LUZ or “Let Me Stay Asleep” for Warsaw Ballet and I have accomplished many independent choreographic projects like “AH07”, “Unreachable” or “The Perfect World” which was awarded the first prize at International Solo Dance Contest in Gdansk. I have also worked on some film productions as a choreographer and a movement director such as “On|Off” made by a creative agency The Doll for London Fashion Week 2015 or a short dance film – “Followed”.
My works have already been performed in many countries including Japan, Canada, the UK, Poland, Belarus and Bulgaria but there was one project that I particularly remember. One morning I checked Dancing Opportunities (as I usually do) and I found an information about The Black Box International Theatre and Dance Festival in Plovidiv, Bulgaria. It sounded very interesting so I decided to give it a try and applied with my solo “The Perfect World” (video). A couple of weeks later I got an invitation for the festival and happily went there to perform. During one of the dinners with all of the participants someone asked me how I found out about the festival and I answered (obviously) – Dancing Opportunities. Imagine my astonishment when heard “Cool, I run this website!” The first thing I said was “No way! You sent me to so many places on this planet!” and then started talking about all of the great projects, festivals, and other things I have done thanks to Mihaela. It was wonderful to meet a person who created this website and thanks to whom we, dance artists, can keep up to date with all of the great opportunities across the world.
Three months ago I had a premiere of my full-evening performance titled “Symetria” in Poland (video) and at the moment I am looking for more venues to perform the piece. I also look forward to start working on my new duet “Release me, not.” (video) in May in London and I truly hope to find some exciting opportunities and support for this project and the next ones!
Best wishes to all DO readers!
