Dry Dances (practice) was thought of as a method to generate physical material for Jaczewska's upcoming performance BRUT. 

 

Dry Dances starts from Jaczewska's fascination to the intentional simplicity and radical approach to form specific to brutalist architecture. While researching brutalism as architectural genre, she created a series of drawings based on the work of the Swiss-French architect Le Corbusier which with Dry Dances she approaches as choreographic scores.

As an additional layer to the physical translation of the scores, Dry Dances attempt to explore Le Corbusier’s own devised system of measurements and proportions: The Modular. With its ambition to reconcile maths, the human form, architecture and beauty into a single system, the Modular placed a 183 cm tall, 'attractive' male body at the centre of all architectural compositions of Le Corbusier in order to achieve harmony. While introducing this system, Le Corbusier consciously excluded measurements of female and children’s bodies as he considered them to be a source of disproportion and disharmony.
