No registration required – frist come, first serve!

Since September 2020, Miroslaw Żydowicz, Tomas Bünger and Magali Sander Fett of the TanzKollektivBremen have been permanent Hausgenoss*innen of the Schwankhalle. With their ›speed dating‹ the collective invites different people to create ›work-in-progress‹ performances in artistic encounters, resulting in spontaneous situations that are surprising for both the artists and the audience—whether the artists dance in the stage set of another piece, on an empty stage or the internet… many things are possible! In the second edition, Miroslaw Żydowicz meets the dancer and choreographer Stefan Żeromski again. Both were trained at the State Ballet School in Poznan and worked together as dancers at Teatr Wielki in Warsaw. In ›Speeddating #2‹, they deal with illusions and truths and attempt a transferal to their own bodies: What is real, when everything we create is a reflection of our own longings?

Miroslaw Żydowicz received his dance education at the State Ballet School in Poznan and was then hired as a dancer at the Teatr Wielki in Warsaw. There he danced in classical ballets and in choreographies by John Neumeier and Hans van Manen, among others. In 1987 he continued his career in Canada with engagements at the Calgary City Ballet, Anna Wyman Dance Theater, Kokoro Dance Theater and the Ballet British Columbia. His repertoire included ballets by Jiri Kylián, Glen Tetley and William Forsythe. After a scholarship from the Wiener Festwochen he was engaged by Susanne Linke at the Bremen Dance Theater in the 1999/2000 season, where he was a member of the ensemble until 2012. In 2011 he danced in the reconstruction of ›Solo with Sofa‹ by Reinhild Hoffmann at the Berlin Academy of the Arts. From 2012 to 2014 he was ballet master and choreographic assistant at the Osnabrück Theater. From 2015 to 2018 he was artistic assistant and training manager in the company Susanne Linke at the Trier Theater. He is a founding member of the TanzKollektivBremen.

Stefan Żeromski received his dance education at the State Ballet School in Poznan. After graduating, he joined the Teatr Wielki in Warsaw and was awarded the Leon Wójcikowski Prize for the best dancer the following year as a soloist. In 1986 he became a member of the ballet of the German Opera Berlin. Until recently he worked as a member of the Nederlands Dans Theater with choreographers such as Jiri Kylian, Sol Leon/Paul Lightfoot, Mats Ek, William Forsyth, Johan Inger and Ohad Naharin.
Stefan Żeromski currently works as a freelance dancer and ballet master and stages works by Jiri Kylian and Sol Leon/Paul Lightfoot at houses such as the Zurich Ballet, the Vienna State Opera, the New Zealand Royal Ballet, the Paris Opera, the Bolshoi, the Berlin State Opera and the Joffrey Ballet.
