Przemysław Błaszczak

Studio Dwóch Ścieżek

Two Paths Studio seeks to develop a training which focuses on the idea of confrontation and opening to new concepts of movement and body work based on the martial arts experience of Studio leaders, Przemysław Błaszczak (aikido) and Jakub Gontarski (capoeira). “Two Paths” are not only two different Japanese and Brazilian movement traditions, but also two different paths: the path of the warrior and the path of the performer. The work of the Studio focuses on how people relate to space (both the workspace and the space of contact with a partner and the group).
