The performance was included in the annual “Teatr” ranking “The best in the 2019/2020 season” as the best dance performance.

“Koda (a tribute)” is another installment of the artistic dialogue between Janusz Orlik and Joanna Leśnierowska. Created as a summary of their fifteen years of cooperation, the show is immersed in the music of Krzysztof Komeda, and thus stands as a tribute to the outstanding artist and his music, and as opportunity to reflect on the multi-level relationship and continuous artistic dialogue of two Poznań artists.

“This ‘conversation’ has many unexpected sounds, twists and colours to it and – most importantly for me – it is still challanging. (…) ‘Koda’ has the hallmarks of a work that should be written down in history, not only because it is formally the culmination of fifteen years of intensive work by the Leśnierowska-Orlik duo. The very fact of the work contains ambivalence – (…) it does not allow us to forget about the approaching finale of a certain era. (…) The structure of ‘Koda’ is spread over a special timeline – as a kind of summary it naturally refers to the past, but it does so in order to develop a new language, that is, to go one step further, to the future.”
