Where Two Paths Meet

“Where Two Paths Meet” is a training developed by Przemysław Błaszczak and Jakub Gontarski based on knowledge gained during their many years of practicing aikido and capoeira. Przemek and Jakub are the leaders of Studio Dwóch Ścieżek, a newly formed studio run as part of the BodyConstitution research programme.

Through the practice of martial arts and physical activities such as partnering, contact improvisation and physical movement we can transform something that belongs spiritually to the world of combat into a tool of expression useful in performer’s work.

Jakub Gontarski

Jakub Gontarski trained at 13 Stunt School in Wrocław. He initiated the String Body programme dedicated to exploring the expression, presence, dramaturgy and creativity of martial arts in the path of Warrior-Performer. To find inspiration, he travels to Brazil, where he takes active part in and documents candomblé rituals. He has co-created many performances, including Animan – I Am Thatand Madhouse, and performs movement improvisations on stage to live music.

Przemysław Błaszczak

is an actor with a degree in philosophy who has been associated with the Grotowski Institute since 1995. From 1996 to 1999, he worked with the Song of the Goat Theatre, where he performed in Song of the Goat – Dithyramb.
