Centrum w Ruchu

Ramona is co-founder of Centrum w Ruchu– a research and rehearsal space, performance space and meeting point for the Polish dance scene, but also an informal collective of dance artists based in Warsaw, Poland. She has been active in the creation and development of Centrum w Ruchu from the day the idea formulated. Officially the space opened in March 2013. It is the first initiative of this kind in Warsaw.

Set in a school on the outskirts of Warsaw, which due to the sinking demographic in Poland has been temporarily converted into a centre for cultural activity called Wawerskie Centrum Kultury (Wawer Cultural Centre). Alongside Centrum w Ruchu (CwR) it is home to artist’s studios, a local radio station and many non-profit organisations.

The members of CwR come from different backgrounds and have followed different individual interests and choreographic languages – but CwR is their common initiative. It is their response to the lack of rehearsal and performance spaces in Poland. It allows choreographers to develop work, lead workshops, show their work and discuss it in a friendly environment. CwR has been built from a need, from within, from the centre – a need to take more risks, and allow Polish dance makers to be more independent from the public funding system.

Centrum w Ruchu was created by: Izabela Chlewińska, Korina Kordova, Agnieszka Kryst, Ramona Nagabczyńska, Weronika Pelczyńska, Renata Piotrowska, Magda Ptasznik, Maria Stokłosa, Iza Szostak, Karol Tymiński and Wojtek Ziemilski.
