DOROTA MICHALAK is a dancer, choreographer & cultural worker of polish origins based in Berlin. Her work is largely based on collective processes, mixing dance practice, new choreography, biology, theory, personal narratives, and fieldwork. It revolves around tactility and is influenced by an investigation of plant life and communication. Choreography is approached as political, poetic, and somatic work, engaging the power and sensitivity of collective attunement. Inspired by the notion of MESHWORK she reflects on work organization and non-hierarchical modalities of collaboration.
