Hanna Raszewska-Kursa awarded:
1st prize (600 euro) to [RE]ADAPTACJA choreographed and performed by JOANNY KOZUBAL, RAFAŁA MATUSIAKA
My first prize is awarded for the ability to build relationships on stage in a non-obvious, yet very effective way; delicate and at the same time fully grabbing my attention. In addition, what caught my attention in the award-winning work was the ability to create a mood that was not easy to achieve: anxiety, tension and hopeful unyielding determination.
2nd prize (400 euro) to „FALLING IN” choreographed and performed by APRIL VESELKO
My second prize is awarded for a combination of delicacy and strength, calmness and confidence in movement, and a balanced and harmonious expression of the face. In addition, the awarded worki is characterized by an original rythm of movement and dramaturgy of the whole piece, bravely exploding in the final.
