In Acting with Shapes, Alicja Bielawska uses parts of her sculptures, which are put in motion by dancers. Bodies and objects are granted equal rights. The movements are inspired, but most of all determined by the objects she created and selected for the performers. Acting with Shapes are based on simple moves, familiar and everyday, which in connection with parts of the sculptures, create new compositions and associations.
