Paulina Ołowska’s “Alphabet” was inspired by the book entitled “ABECEDA” by Karel Teige, who created in 1926 the experimental “moving alphabet”, in cooperation with Milca Mayerova. “Alphabet” combines rhythmicity with constructivist fascination for typography and points to the rhetorical function of dance: three performers arrange their bodies to form 26 letters confronting the alphabet of the written language with the “alphabet” of gestures and movements, create a new system of expressing meanings.
