A moving, precisely composed duet to the first part of Wojciech Kilar’s Piano Concert in a dramatic, touching and outstandingly musical interpretation of the choreographer and Anna Lorenc. Robert Bondara managed to uniquely present the subject which is overused in art (and therefore banal): inability to communicate of two people who are clearly attracted to each other. A cleverly staged eight-and-a-half-minute work with expressive dramatic tension and a message (“you don’t play with love”) shows a great creative talent.
