Boa is the first choreographic play in the history of the National Stary Theatre in Krakow.

Its main theme and explored space of movement is desire, how it is demonstrated, embodied, and performed. In “Boa,” choreographer Paweł Sakowicz wonders about paths by which desire circulates in the body; how it is created through a spatial orientation of bodies; how it can be intermediated through popular culture, discourses, and technologies, and what its embodied consequences are. Delving into the trajectories of desire, “Boa” mainly focuses on two parts of the body: the hips and the eyes, which do not need the sense of touch in order to touch. Sakowicz draws from cinematic tools that build relationships, organize images, and internalize the outside gaze, though there are no cameras on stage. The bodies here bear traces of stolen choreographies and scraps of fiery soap-opera plots. The actors practice culturally stereotyped dances of the South, and they seduce a non-existent camera, the existing audience, and one another.
