Practical Information

About She dies for you

A body has been found in the woods. There’s always a body; there’s always woods. In fact, it might even be several bodies. It’s hard to tell when it’s taken apart, a part here, a part there. A part of her apart from her. How many generations of women have lived, sung and died in these woods? How many baskets of treats and big bad wolves have seen little girls turned mothers, turned grandmothers, turned meat, and fodder for the heroic ends of passing woodcutters? A body has been found. What was done to her? What did she do to you? Welcome to the enduring forest of unspeakable tales.

About Maria Magdalena Kozłowska

Maria Magdalena Kozłowska was born in Zielona Góra, Poland. She's a director, performer, singer and writer. Her directorial debut at 15 years old was staging de Sade's Misfortunes of Virtue in the community theatre. She graduated from the College of In-ter-area Individual Studies in the Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Warsaw, majoring in philosophy and linguistics. During her studies she developed a practice around video and performance. Her work was presented by Ujazdowski Centre for Contemporary Art, MoMA Warsaw, KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, Eu-ropean Cultural Foundation, Belluard Bollwerk Festival. As a performer and singer, she appeared in theatre and dance pieces by Alex Baczyński-Jenkins, Marta Ziółek and Oliver Zahn, among others. Despite the interdisciplinary character of her work, theatre was always at the core of her practice. She works with the entanglement of music and language. During her studies at DAS Theatre she has cultivated her interest in non-normative female voices. She investigates dramatic elements in the mundane, and mundanity in the sublime.
