Two Paths Studio

In the Two Paths Studio we seek to explore movement traditions associated with different martial arts. We’ve always had an intuition that the beautiful and live dimensions of martial arts may offer something fresh, new and nourishing for actors, dancers and performers. Many traditions – two paths. The path of aikido has grown out of our research into this tradition. I want to share our work in progress.
Przemysław Błaszczak

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.

Two Paths Studio

Two Paths Studio seeks to develop a training which centres around the ideas of confrontation and in-depth understanding of the function of training in studio work, drawing on the martial arts experience of the Studio leaders, Przemysław Błaszczak (aikido) and Jakub Gontarski (capoeira). The first stage of Studio’s work focused on ‘two paths’ – two different movement traditions, Japanese and Brazilian, attempting to find a common territory that a performer, or ‘practitioner’, can draw from.
