Action Medea

17th December 2022


The presentation of Studio Kokyu's work is a statement from the latest stage of research that the team consisting of Joanna Kurzyńska, Marta Horyza, and Marie Walker has been conducting under the direction of Przemysław Błaszczak since the beginning of 2022.

Interest in the classical text of Euripides' tragedy led us to attempt to confront the material behind one of the most ambiguous figures of European culture, i.e. Medea - poisoner, child killer, sorceress, princess, murderer and avenger raging with despair, and finally a victim of the patriarchal system. Studying, asking questions about Medea is one aspect of our search, while another is the question about the performer, or rather a performer, about the possibility of reducing the stage form to a precise, naked performative structure.

,Action Medea -Meeting at Work'


Na Grobli Studio, the Grotowski Institute
Tue. 28.02.2023, 14.00–16.00
Polish, English
Next meetings: 31 March 2023, 26 May, 9 June
Each ,Meeting at Work’ combines a performance of ,Action Medea’ with joint exploration and asking questions about work, technique and practice. ,Meeting at Work’ is for those who are not only interested in being on the receiving end of performance art but want to go one step further and become part of the process.
,Meeting at Work’ sessions will be held once a month. After the performance of ,Action Medea’ we will have around an hour to exchange observations and thoughts. We are planning eight such meetings in 2023. Each of them for a maximum of 10 people.
“Action Medea can be watched as a performance, but for us this is only one of the perspectives. We can talk about this structure as a composition of exercises, specific tasks in the field of the performer’s training, which, arranged in layers, constitute the next step, determine the next level or stage of practice. Like Kokyu training, Action Medea is a tool for understanding yourself in action, expanding the field of what is precise and conscious within the existing composition”.

I Come to You River: Ophelia Fractured


10th and 11th February 2023

 Studio Na Grobli, Grotowski Institute 


In "I Come to You River: Ophelia Fractured" we attempt to retell Ophelia's story again, this time with the voices of contemporary young women who are looking for answers to the question about the message that comes from studying this iconic figure today. We shed light on Ophelia so that it will break down and reveal what is hidden in her fate. We observe how the cracks in her image are filled with new content and speak to us, about us. They talk about love and loneliness, about depression, about women and men, about parents, about the system that we are part of, whether we like it or not.



Upcoming performances to be announced June 2023.
