Simone is a solo dance performance by Anna Godowska commemorating Simone Weil, a great thinker and mystic of the 20th century. The performance is an internal portrait of this incredible woman portrayed through dance. Simone Weil combined a unique spiritual force, an insightful mind, the courage of uncompromised thought with a weak and sick body. This contrast reflects her most profound ideas and constitutes the main axis of the project.
The performance is based on in-depth research of the core motifs of Weil’s work, executed with the application of the method of creative work with dreams and the unconscious. This avant-garde method has been developed by Sławek Krawczyński and Anna Godowska for more than a dozen years.
The music composed by Peter Łyczkowski is a reference to the biographical motives in the thinker’s life and her artistic inspirations.
