A machine for living in, wielka płyta, panelak, plattenbau are loose interpretations of idealistic principles of Le Corbusier. A huge old communist block of flats stands surrounded by ten just the same buildings. Thousands of people share a limited space in a completely anonymous environment; they hardly ever communicate. Blocks are: boredom, hopelessness, addictions but also: street art and strong motivations to get individual. For living in isan expressive form transmitting feelings and experience. A study on popular tendencies… somatic approaches (yoga, Feldenkrais). His working methodology is based on deep research into movement and implementation of original artistic practices.
