This exciting piece, that puts three powerful women on stage, homes in on the relation between personal and professional life. Polish choreographer and dancer Renata Piotrowska-Auffret draws on her personal experiences and the stories of other women to investigate this longing for motherhood within a tangle of reproductive policies, countless promises and attempts to take advantage of the desire for children.
'The polyphony of voices is a very strong aspect of the performance and places itself within the public debate of recognizing women’s rights as human rights. In Poland this demand is still met with incomprehensible and scandalous resistance. Pure gold…. will, unfortunately, not lose it’s immediacy for a long time.'
'“The pure gold is seeping out of me” brings back from non-memory, stories which were being ejected from public sphere and shows how the experience of maternity is being entangled in systemic conditions. The slogan of student’s movements from the sixties – private is political – sounds very actual in the context of the dancers stories.'
