Kaya Kołodziejczyk is part of UNIVERSAL LAW OF IMPERMANENCE (U/LOI)
U/LOI is an independent structure within which different movement/dance improvisations take place. In their group activities, the members of U/LOI are trying to catch and fix our attention on elements of everyday reality, which are lost in the usual way of perception. Body, movement, time, space, quasi-dancing events, organized in visible/invisible way in different spaces are documented as films and photographs. They are being transformed to performances that are taking place in galleries, old factories, and non-theatrical zone. Other group activities are: creating workshops, guiding master classes and teaching various techniques of dance/motion as an element of expression.
