The international immersive performance Kobro_Spaces is based on a revolutionary one  approach to the sculpture of Polish avant-garde artist Katarzyna Kobro, who  was one of the stimuli for revolutionary changes in the perception of fine art.

The aim of the whole creative team was to find a functional model that would allow to translate theoretical considerations about the nature and function of sculpture from avant-garde thinking into contemporary performative, choreographic and social communication languages. Nevertheless, the performance is not only a formal analysis of shifts in the history of sculpture, but also a story about the search for new impulses and ideas.

Director Dawid Żakowski describes Kobro Spaces as follows: “We would like to create a performative space open to the viewer. The performance consists of undefined movement of spectators and movement of performers - structured and determined by the framework of space-time, designed by choreographers. This joint exhibit creates a kind of algorithm of behavior, movements, migrations, which take place in the space-time level. "
