Lots of new work from the former DanceWEB mob this month. Gdansk-based Anna Steller had Good Girl Killer at Klub Zak.
Good Girl Killer – premiere march 6, 2005, Klub Zak, Gdansk, Poland
Good Girl Killer is the latest production by Anna Steller and Magda JÍdra, two contemporary dancers from GdaÒsk, Poland. They collaborate with two musicians: Zbigniew ìZibiîBieÒkowski and Grzegorz ìWalizaîWelizarowicz. The artists created this multimedia dance performance for two reasons. On the one hand, they wanted to put into confrontation their individual artistic and life experiences. On the other, they wish to pay tribute to the magnetic cassette, which celebrates its 40th birthday and is bound for extinction (the end of last year marked the end of the musical production published in the magnetic cassette format).
Using the metaphor of the cassette we are allowed to travel in time, we sample the past and fly into the future, we can erase our identity or record a new personality for ourselves.
