choreography: Joe Alter, Dorota Łęcka
performer: Dorota Łęcka
music: Erik Ian Walker, Albert Mathias, Little Dragon, Lhasa de Sela
duration: 18 min

This is a pure movement piece inspired by the internal obstacles created by the fictions of one’s own personal narrative. The stories we tell ourselves based on our own interpretation of the basic facts of one’s life. It is the minds tendency to interpret and assign meaning to events, ideas, words; anything that is perceived. The mind will do so even when it must create fictions that it then misinterprets as truth. This dance is a personal journey in which the stories are eventually recognized as fiction and, eventually, the state of freedom and choice from of the stories our minds create.
