Summary/Abstract: Teresa Fazan reviews the dance performance Made in Bangladesh, directed by the German choreographer and stage designer Helena Waldmann (shown at the Nowy Teatr in Warsaw: 17 Jul 2016). The author notes that the performance was inspired by the exploitation of workers in late capitalism. Fazan describes the contents, choreography and kinds of dance used in Made in Bangladesh. She skilfully shows that identifying the work of a dancer with that of a worker is too hasty. However, she claims that the language of dance is suitable for political statements and works well as a means of telling the tale of physical, rhythmical work in a factory.
