Fear- a tribal emotion that provokes destruction and can provide survival, a slimy creature that glides under your skin and poisons your blood. Come and meet a fearless girl going into a boxing ring with her demons, trying to understand the true essence of fear.
Her litany against fear is: I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past, I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

“FearLess” stands out in a Polish performance scene. It’s a performance worth seeing for multiple reasons. Gosia Mielech represents virtuosic performance qualities, which makes her one of the most interesting individuals in the national dance sector. Original, trance music composed by Anna Suda, together with superheroine costumes designed by Kata Kwiatkowska, as well as brilliantly animated prop and precise lighting design, leave a strong impact on the audience.
Above all, the creator of “FearLess” talks very clearly about something important and asks the audience to reflect on their relationship with fear.
Physical contemplation regarding fear is the main topic around which the performance reality exists. Thanks to a thorough analysis of the subject and interviewing various individuals, Gosia Mielech has depicted fear as a common, culturally universal, social-semantic construct, which can condition the lives of every one of us.
