Jagoda is a lecturer for Postgraduate Studies in Dance Theory at the Chopin University of Music in Warsaw, as well as in the field of dance at the Academy of Physical Education in Poznań. In her panel piece, she will examine the art of dance as a cross-border art form and a social phenomenon, which is not exempt from repressive situations.
