  Watermelon is a concert/performance consisting of original sound-and-dance compositions for everyday objects used as instruments (bath filled with water, buckets and rags, plumbing installations, kitchen equipment: blender, grater, spoons, glasses, etc.). Inspired by the traditional Kujawy swing and lyrics of Polish women’s folk songs. Set design conceived as a spatial instrument lets come into being the audiosphere that constantly surrounds us and which we usually ignore.

The woman is rounded and smooth, and about 70 percent consisting of water. She’s sometimes sweet and has seeds. She is pinkish. Smells good. When she’s out of season – she withers.

Kitchen and bathroom. Threads turn around the stories from two spaces: a kitchen, which is usually crowded and a bathroom, where we usually go alone. Dripping tap. Three female voices echoing in the plumbing system. Unusual and everyday sounds, stimulated by the random movements, gestures, dance.
