„FOLK? I do (not) agree!” is a Polish-Icelandic project inspired by a performance by Edyta Kozak and Roland Rowiński with a similar title and executed by the Ciało/Umysł Foundation and Reykjavik Dance Festival. The starting point was the attempt to redefine the notion of folk and show it in a broad context, both as a cultural form and as a social and political construct.

Implemented through artistic residencies in Poznań and Reyjkjavik, the project builds on folklore studies the Foundation has initiated in the past and seeks an answer to questions pertaining to the role folk plays in modern social, economic and political spheres both in Poland and in Iceland.

The results achieved by 10 performers will be shown during the August Reykjavik Dance Festival and the September Body/Mind Festival in Warsaw.FOLK? I do (not) agree!

"FOLK? I do (not) agree!" project is supported by a grant from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA Grants and co-financed by the Polish funds.
