Yesterday we premiered our latest production "The DistANCE" by authors and choreographers Michal Rynia and Nastja Bremec Rynia.
"As creators of this performance, we acknowledge the unique relationship we have with the unknown. Our creative process is rooted in intuition and imagination, embracing dance as an art form that goes beyond what artificial intelligence can currently achieve.
Dance allows us to tap into the depths of human expression, conveying emotions, stories, and experiences that are inherently intuitive and deeply personal. It is a form of communication that transcends language barriers, societal norms, and rationality.
While artificial intelligence continues to advance and demonstrate remarkable capabilities, it is still unable to replicate the intricate nuances of human movement, emotion, and creativity that dance encompasses. Dance is an embodiment of the human spirit, a celebration of our unique ability to connect with ourselves and others through the language of movement.
In a world increasingly influenced by technology, we strive to remind ourselves and our audience that dance remains a powerful and irreplaceable art form. It ignites our senses, stirs our emotions, and invites us to explore the uncharted territories of the human experience. With every performance we aim to unleash the limitless possibilities of dance, embracing its ability to remind us of the profound depth and richness of our humanity.”
