BWA Contemporary Art Gallery in Katowice

The first stage of making the movie was the workshop carried out as part of the project “TO ART, READY START!” (curated by Aneta Zasucha) under the direction of choreographer Dominika Knapik.

The classes were a mixture of contemporary dance and theatrical tasks based on the elements of American wrestling. It was a workshop for girls – modern warriors. Under the supervision of a stylist, Hanka Podraza, they were dressed in the costumes of “Superheroes”.

The workshops were filmed and the result was video art “Wrestling Girls. How to Train Them? “. It was presented at the exhibition” Test of Strength “at the BWA Contemporary Art Gallery in Katowice.
