"...I want to ask you to close your eyes
Can you do this now for me, guys?
And try to answer,
but it’s just for you:
What do you think you will still have time to do....?"
The starting point for this project is going to be based on the attempt to find an answer to the question: ”the time will come for what?” Movement-based exploration preceded by a research and interviews conducted among a group of women of over 50 and 30 years of age. The inspiration for the movement search, was the aesthetics of the camp, especially its visual aspect and specific naivety.
Big thanks to all women, who took part in a survey and to Anna Czyżykiewicz, Hanna Bylka-Kanecka, Jakub Pałys, Alex Bradshaw and Anna Bojara.
