BIEGUNI - new work by ALDancers
BIEGUNI (the Runners) is a 55min. dance theater performance, with original music. The work is based on a novel by Polish writer, Olga Tokarczuk. Bieguni is a Russian orthodox sect that believes all evil stems from stagnation, and that only people,  continually in motion, can save the world. The idea that moving the body is a sacred act translates marvelously into dance.

Under supervision of ALD Artistic Director, Agnieszka Laska, 6 company dancers interpret different characters, each depicting a different thread from within the novel. From these components lead choreographer Laska builds the overarching dramaturgy, blending and  alternating the stories. ALD Resident Composer Jack Gabel's original music drives the dance.

Zdzislaw Beksinski's paintings montage in wall projections. Beksinski's renowned work haunts the collective Polish  conscience with reflections of the 20th century's indelible horrors and deprivations. Laska feels they've risen from her own subconscious, forcing their way into BIEGUNI.
