The Swedish Cullberg Ballet will visit Poland for one-time only performance to display their “Plateau Effect” modern dance experience.
With the use of light, fabric, sound and lighting, the dancers in “Plateau Effect” attempt to seduce and challenge the audience. The performers navigate through the stage resembling a community moving through various terrains.

They communicate, construct, transport and inhabit the stage, uniting them to create something more than one person could alone. The spectators can witness how something crude and rudimentary morphs into complicated and grandiose constructions: “where the raw reality of materiality flips into a psychedelic space of exception,” reads the ballet’s website.
“I want the body, light and sound to quite literally extend and reach out to the spectators, with directness and without a need for interpretation,” said Jefta van Dinther, the choreographer of the performance. “I want to cultivate and promote a space where an audience can spend time with the things they do not recognize. The title Plateau Effect refers to a temporary state of stable productivity, in which a leveling out occurs,” he added.
The Cullberg Ballet was founded in 1967 and stages performances all over the world to promote Swedish culture. The founding philosophy is that all the dancers are to be considered soloists and therefore receive the same pay. One of the current performers is Poland’s Agnieszka Długoszewska.
