With her works Berlin-based Anna Nowicka focuses on the choreography of the imaginary and the relationship between dreaming and dancing bodies. Just like dreams, her dance pieces guide spectators through diverse poetic and cinematic landscapes, unraveling unpredictable topographies, distinct esthetics and logics. In Flicker she invites sound-artist Jasmine Guffond and light-designers Aleksandr Prowaliński and Naja Burucoa to collect scattered pieces of dreams, hopes and desires and to weave them into an immersive, flowing, sensational journey. Flicker twirls and re-turns, stamps and sniffs its footsteps, inviting images to arrive, move the body and dissolve. In a vibrant light, it reverses what needs to be shed. It is a murmuring dance, pronouncing the words of change.
