In my beginning is my end

Where are the past and the future, when all that really exists is now? And in spite of the cult of youth, idealized bodies and virtuoso fitness, our bodies and minds are changing. Here comes the great beauty of old age, which commits the past to memory and ties the future to the anticipation of another moment of bliss. This piece by the Lublin Dance Theatre straddles the line between nostalgia and hope.

Cannot bear very much reality.
Time past and time future
What might have been and what has been?
Point to one end, which is always present.”


Lublin Dance Theatre was established in 2001 as a part of the municipal Centre for Culture, main cultural institution of the city of Lublin. Its first artistic director and choreographer was Hanna Strzemiecka.
LDT has been also undertaking numerous artistic and educational initiatives aiming at promotion of the contemporary dance art, as a means of expression full of intellectual and political potency.

Special attention is being paid to the cooperation with cultural institutions in Poland and abroad focusing on creating a net of centers promoting contemporary dance through stage presentations, workshops, lectures, exhibitions, video projections, as well as dance events organized in site-specific context.
