Summary/Abstract: Julia Hoczyk reviews the performances shown at the Body/Mind Festival (Warsaw, 18-28 Sep 2014). She groups them according to three subjects: the relationship between the human being and the objects (UNTITLED_I will be there when you die – Alessandro Sciarroni, Nothing’s for something – Heine Avdal, Yukiko Shinozaki, Mouvinsitu – Les Choses de Rien); exposing and transgressing masculinity (Felix Mathias Ott's The Iliad, Olivier Dubois's Solus); the right to express one's individuality on the stage (ATLAS Warszawa – Ana Borralho and João Galante). Hoczyk also points out that the aim of ATLAS and Souls is social criticism, while the rest of the productions have been inspired by various artistic genres. The author considers UNTITLED_I will be there when you die the best performance shown at the festival.
