Free Gestures is an encounter between choreography, literature, and the format of an exhibition. The title of the exhibition includes a double meaning that only comes across in the original Polish, Wolne Gesty. Wolne comes from wolność, which means freedom, while powolność is slowness. If we refer to the slowness of gestures then perhaps we can see the dance in it.
As part of the conventional white-cube, elements of equipment have been designed to support the building of narrative in a choreographic arrangement.
