Can a human being refrain from using what they can produce?

The American "Manhattan Project" aimed to build the first nuclear weapon. It was a paradoxical bomb: it was supposed to bring great destruction and end the war at the same time. The dropping of the Little Boy on Hiroshima is a horrifying example of human activity to demonstrate that a way to seek reconciliation is to increase violence. Can a war end in any other way than by escalating aggression? Apocalyptic thinking ceases to be madness and becomes everyday reality. We can either destroy or love each other.

"Looking at the strong, precise movement of strong muscles gives some kind of satisfaction,
but we do not always see the hidden desire to dominate and capture by attack.
In some scenes of the performance, the authors even use elements of the grotesque,
emphatically showing how far our tolerance for aggression reaches.”

Polish Dance Network (PDN) is the first formalized cooperation network between institutions and organizations supporting the development of contemporary dance in Poland. Each season, PDN partners select for the joint repertoire the most interesting productions of Polish independent artists and institutional dance groups. Performances indicated for implementation in a given year set off on a tour under the PDN banner, during which they visit partner centres. Currently, PDN 2020 brings together 15 partners presenting 14 dance performances with the participation of almost 100 artists. By the end of 2020, there will be almost 80 shows throughout the country. The activities of PDN are organised by the Institute of Music and Dance.
