For many women, wanting children is natural. But what if that wish is subject to all sorts of legal clauses?
This exciting piece, that puts three powerful women on stage, homes in on the relation between personal and professional life. Polish choreographer and dancer Renata Piotrowska-Auffret draws on her personal experiences and the stories of other women to investigate this longing for motherhood within a tangle of reproductive policies, countless promises and attempts to take advantage of the desire for children.
As Long as We Dance is the first in the series of dance performances to be premiered at Prague-based theater Studio Hrdinů each of the several following seasons. As Long as We Dance was created by the world-renowned Polish conceptual choreographer Renata Piotrowska-Auffret in cooperation with a team of Czech theatre professionals.

In her newest piece DANSE MACABRE, Renata Piotrowska-Auffret with an amazing team researches social and physical aspects of danse macabre, focusing on somatic and community-based aspects of constant, uninterrupted dance — the one, that soothes anxiety, gives opportunity to (re)discover joy, distance and united power of group of people.
It’s a piece that goes further than a performance, becoming a part of pandemic experience, by creating time and space for physical, mental, social and political recovery in a new reality.
Feel welcome to visit Teatr Kochanowskiego in Opole for this common celebration of danse macabre…

Long-term collaboration with the artistic director of Studio Hrdinů Jan Horák will now have another result – Renata Piotrowska-Auffret has been invited to Prague as a director of the new piece „Waves” (working title) which will have its premier in December this year. It’s amazing to work with such an incredible artistic team and in this beautiful venue in Holešovice, one of the most fascinating district of Prague. We can’t wait to meet the audience, hopefully still this year.
The work on the new piece by Renata Piotrowska-Auffret has just started in Opole, Poland. See how interesting it looks on the pictures – the working title of the piece is Danse Macabre and the premiere is planned for June, 18th. Fingers crossed for the whole group of actors and dancers and undisturbed by Covid-19 process!
Event for the industry: When artistic career and parenting unite
A two-day event for professionals dedicated to how you as an artist unite being a parent and having a professional artistic career. Is it possible to give your children a steady and safe everyday life combined with the unstable situation artists often finds themselves in?
Perhaps you are experiencing a dilemma when the next residency requires you to be away from your children for four weeks in a row while you are in the studio to immerse yourself. The children’s everyday life continues at home, and you can not always take an active part in it. Issues such as these will be addressed with Parent Hood at Edison, September 20th and 21st 2020.
