Heartbeat. Rapid breathing. Heightened senses. Instinct. Readiness. Fight for SOMETHING.


While the audience is assembling, I am waiting outside of the room. Suddenly I come running inside and jump onto one of the men’s legs. I clutch his leg screaming “biegnij!” (run!), “biegnij kurwa!” (run, damn it!) and “szybciej!” (faster!). He tries to run with me holding onto his leg.
In another version of “twoja” I jump on one man’ shoulders, screaming „trzymaj się, kurwa, trzymaj się!” („Trzymaj” has double meaning in polish: 1. hold onto, 2. hold out) – I try to find a way for me to hold onto his back, arms or shoulders, but with time, I slide down more and more. He ceases to move or at other times pushes me away.
