Choreographic performance for families prepared during the workshop process with children aged 1.5-10 and their guardians. During these meetings, the members of the group got to know the work of contemporary choreographers, improvised, worked, learning the Contakids method and other somatic practices, but most of allall of them recognized their own movement needs in a game that involved both adults and children and children.
 

The choreography consists of actions, the order of which is the result of random choices of participantsperformed while the performance is taking place, thanks to which there is a lot of room for improvisation,and the meeting is unique and unique. The intensity of involvement depends on each individual -i wantedy create a democratic and free space where any activity (or lack of it) is accepted.

For me, it was incredible, pure joy and great energy: here are completely strange families meeting each other and starting to create a dance project, in such different seemingly different conditions as online conditions. For me as a mother, it was also an extraordinary lesson in humility. Children do not always want to cooperate, sometimes they prefer to go read a book instead of improvising, sometimes we had a great time, sometimes for most of the exercises and tasks it was just us, adults, and our daughter did her own business. It was great being with youclose to each other, we searched for solutions together, and most of all, we had a great time! Asked if she liked it, Alicja replied: "the tornado quilt was nice. And that we were together." Yes, the word "together" is definitely the best description of what this project meant to us. (Magda)

It was surprising in terms of form, because these exercises made a person quickly loosen up and relax, and we didn't need great preparations and an exercise room for that. There was only action and freedom, not an explanation of what to do and how. Such acceptance, whether something comes out or not   is not so important and allows you to open up. I liked that we didn't come here to teachsteps and make sure that the steps match with earlierplan. We operated freelyspontaneity and openness gave birth to mindfulness, and this caused novelty and curiosity all the time. One exercise has become part of our daily routine, and my daughter even plays with her friends in this way. (Julia)
