Summary/Abstract: Hoczyk sums up five years of Poland’s first residency for young choreographers – Solo Projekt at the Old Brewery. Analyzing the performances by the various residents – Anita Wach, Dominika Knapik, Małgorzata Haduch, Ramona Nagabczyńska, Magdalena Przybysz, Aleksandra Borys, Rafał Urbacki and Anna Nowicka – the author asks what Solo Projekt is, how its premises are realized, how this program affects the development of the winning professionals, and at what moment they artistically encounter their own selves on their creative paths. To conclude, she outlines the attributes of all the artists: their turn toward issues of the body, identity, and subjectivity, and finally, their attempts to be open to social discourse and the politics of physicality.
