The performance group ’Personal Space’ was founded in 2015 when the artists Gabriella Novak and Mariusz Andrzejczyk met at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. Since then, the group has been actively performing in different parts of the world.

Connecting to anthropologist Edward Hall’s theory space within intimate distance and personal distance, called personal space. Today ’Personal Space’ explores their interest in proxemics, the study of human use of space and the effects that population density has on behavior, communication, and social interaction, by use of nonverbal communications and performance as medium, including touch, body movement, structure of time, paralanguage and space.
