Polish choreographer and performance artist Agata Maszkiewicz to present her performance ‘Still Life’ at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
The Warsaw-born choreographer and performance artist Agata Maszkiewicz will present her new performance Still Life at the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh (between 13th and 18th August).
Do you remember the first thing you ever bought? Is there something that you will want to be passed on to your children or grandchildren after your death? Still Life focusses on the relationship between man, everyday objects and nature. Maszkiewicz and Vincent Tirmarche touch on concepts such as the nature of things or death, but they avoid the physical presence of objects on stage. They choose to do so as to allow the dancers to relate to the questions posed in the performance through movement.

Still Life will be part of the international section of the festival, which will include performances and plays by artists from Taiwan, Belgium, Italy and the United Kingdom.
Agata Maszkiewicz’s performance is part of the Dance Base project, whose innovative programme is highly acclaimed by international audiences and curators and has received many prestigious awards. Maszkiewicz was invited to participate by the curator of this year's edition. Other invited artists include Rachael Gilkey, Andy Arnold, Wolfgang Hoffman and Martin Atkinson.
