‘Watch Me Happening’ is bargaining, a dialogue between various parts, within one self, or a dance, a solo. It’s a piece in which objective and subjective, personal and collective approaches, opinions and thoughts are treated in the boundary of instincts and consciousness.
The performance is the new version of the Laban Prize nominated piece Old Pond by Zsusza Rózsavölgyi and Tóbiás Terebessy. The choreographer now retakes the pulsating choreography with 21 dancers from Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance (SEAD).
The performance makes use of time seemingly spent uselessly through dance emerging from everyday emotions and situations. 'Your mother at my door' is part of the priority companies of Aerowaves Spring Forward 2017.
Zsuzsa Rózsavölgyi investigates the female body, its role in today’s society, its reasons and aspects of successfulness or unsuccessfulness. Revealing taboos and personal confessions about living in a female body in a lecture-performance solo piece.
Five people try to surrender in a fictitious world. If not truly connect at least to coexist peacefully in a world created by the fiction of theatre. They work hard to make sense out of nonsense and land on a common ground of acceptance. Five individuals meet in a fictive room hosted by the theatre. With their voice, with their body and with the objects found as if they were leftovers of a riot of a fictitious protest.
Hirokai Umeda works with five Hungarian dancers to present his new piece DRIVES at Sziget festival, then at Trafó House of Conteporary Arts in September. The dancers who have different dance characters share a common movement system given by the choreographer. Sharp electronic sound and geometric abstract visual images with dance movement make strangely organic space, which audience can ‘experience' in this piece.
Two dancers, Viktória Dányi and Nelson Reguera Perez examine all what is underlying a relationship between two people through this endlessly repeated, routine-like gesture.
A show evoking the improvised masses of the party culture. Through the reinterpretation of the stereotypical situations created by the dancing crowd a new, fictitious, comic-like world is born. Beyond the dramas of the night life human games are resolved and a new trans-like state is achieved, in which the ego and the instincts are shadowed.
The performance is a personal and in the same time philosophical game of the two creators, about truth, co-existence, encounters and the possible conflicts of different point of views, parallel realities. Point of You is a playful debate, an in-depth analysis of how you get lost in being right.
You get up. Have coffee. Iron your shirt. A well acquired routine. But what if you turn all this from horizontal to vertical? In this piece the dancers-acrobats merge elements of contemporary dance, physical theatre and circus acrobatics of aerial silk and Chinese pole. An Open Latitudes 3 coproduction of 2015.
“Old pond / frog leaps / into water sound.” The piece expresses a potentially extra-human, imaginary community through visual, audio and kinesthetic sensations. Coproduction of SIN Culture Centre and Workshop Foundation, supported by LLB, an EU Culture Programme project.
In his latest piece Csaba Molnár investigates his own intuitive world with the sensual and structural worlds of Boccaccio’s. An exciting encounter of contemporary dance and theatre. Decameron was produced within the EU Culture Programme project, DÉPARTS.
First collaboration of this Hungarian – Israeli choreographer duo, premiered within the DÉPARTS programme, an EU Culture Programme project. Ego Trip is an investigation into understanding the mechanism of egos and their relation to others and towards the society.
