Agata Maszkiewicz Don Kiewicz & Sancho Waniec
Don Quichote as you’ve never seen him before!
In "Don Kiewicz & Sancho Waniec" the stage is transformed into a construction site. Not as knights in armor but as fully outfitted construction workers the Polish dancers Agata Maszkiewicz and Magdalena Chowaniec enter their field of action.
They start a fatiguing game in which illusions, false promises and power struggles are rife. Imaginative they manipulate building materials, placing themselves and others in danger and dance untamed in a production that is at the same time absurd, motorial and political. Maszkiewicz and Chowaniec offer with their production a contemporary and feminine tribute to the Spanish ingenious nobleman Don Quixote and his helper Sancho Panza as to the worldwide much sought after Polish construction workers.
