Bombyx Mori

In this trio performance, Ola Maciejewska draws inspiration from Loïe Fuller's signature work, Serpentine Dance. She brings the iconic legend face to face with her paradoxes and intangible character. The title, Bombyx Mori, refers to the silkworm, which has become entirely dependent on humans for its survival. Dance, archives and artifice are interwoven in this performance, engendering a metaphor for the hybrid nature of things.

Post-show Talk
A chance to hear the artists talk about their work, which will take place in the auditorium following the performance on May 13. 

The running time of the performance is approximately 60 minutes without intermission.
