SEAD Bodhi Project: Lucy

Choreography: Lali Ayguadé
In this world we are constantly living with good and bad, what is right and what is wrong, with beauty and ugliness…and one always exists because of the other, we can not imagine one of them existing by itself, and both of them are necessary for the other to exist.
This piece is about these two worlds coexisting together. Good and evil, ugliness and beauty part of the intricate embroidery of life itself.
Dancers: Tina-Forés-Hitt, Máté Horváth, Ruby Frances Jones, Luca Kancsó, Tilly Sordat, Félix Urbina Alejandre

Zsuzsa Rozsavolgyi: Soft Tissue Balancing

When one part moves, the body as a whole responds. Functionally, the only tissue that can mediate such responsiveness is the connective tissue. If there is a disturbance in the flow of motion (blocked joint, injury, scar tissue, over-use…) the body’s response is to shift the structure away from the pain, some parts starts to hold more weight and becomes harder that leads to over-use and he pain you had originally is moving to an other part. In the workshop you learn the structure of the soft tissue (fascia), you learn connections of holding patterns you never thought of, you learn how to detangle the knots and you learn exercises to maintain a balanced structure.

Zsuzsa Rózsavölgyi, dancer/choreographer studied at Budapest Dance School, Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance (SEAD) and P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels. She worked with Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker in Rosas for 5 years. Currently she is working with Thierry De Mey, composer on his new creation. Since 2009 she creates her own work with physically demanding processes. For years she researched on how to maintain her and her dancers physical and emotional needs during creation time and prepare herself and her dancers to reach their peak performance.

Gyula Cserepes: Late night show

In his book “The impossible nude”, François Jullien is looking for the essence of the nude through the comparison of the Western and Chinese philosophy. One of his conclusion is that the denuded, naked human body is always objective. It could become a subject only when it veils its nudity. Wearing clothes draws the spectator’s focus onto the person’s spirit and personality. On the contrary: nudity is what draws our attention to the essential.
According to historians, dance is the root and most ancient form of all kind of performing art. From this perspective we can call it also a proto – performance.
Regardless of culture, religion, language or any other identity–defining aspect, this is an art form which can be found universally all around the world.
Moreover, dance is beyond the human being – we know many species, who dance their very own dance. What is common in the dance of the humans and the animals is the authentic instinct, where instead of its aesthetic experience it holds a practical function: a sophisticated evolutionary tool for choosing a mate
Through a female and a male dancer, Eroica Universalis is reaching to this movement experience growing out of our ancient, authentic instinct. Their dance is a rapture of the never-ending circulation that evolves from the tension between the two parts of a divided universe. This performance is a lyrical representation of the tragedy that is derived from the intention of creating a unison, which can never be processed. A contemporary adaptation of the eternal, “lonely together” ballade.

Natalia Iwaniec: Birdland

Choreography and dance: Natalia Iwaniec
Stabilization and the lack of stabilization. My life top a certain degree became a nomadic life. It is hard for me to stay in one place so at the same time it is difficult for me to settle. I am constantly
looking for something: for home, for love, for work, for friends, for dance, for freedom. Life is a journey and you get to decide how you will travel. Yo can travel alone or with others, you can travel to find answers, to find home or to escape home. I am in constant search for my promised land.

SUB.LAB Collective: Before Time

– performers: David Miko & Dorottya Podmaniczky –

Gods. Humanlike animal. Animal-like human. Godless animal. Animal-eating human made by bored gods. Man-eating gods. Cannimal. Two-thirds god and one third animal. Two-thirds god and one third man. Two-thirds human, one third animal. Semi-God, half man. God-fearing human: animal of fear. Halfman-fearing animal. Half-half animal. Half-man, half-animal. Divine bitch. Two-thirds man and one third women. Human or animal? And where are the gods?

SUB.LAB Collective : Mitosis

During cell division the original cell divided into two absolutely identical cells. This is the process of mitosis. After fertilization the dividing cells are arranged in geometric figures which were found in drawings of different ancient cultures.

The correlations suggest the existence of a universal law. A hidden code in nature, on our planet and in the universe. We live in a world of mathematics and symbols actually.

The duality of opposing energies and the eternal flow between unity and separation are the true essence of Life. We see it in the interdependence between Man and Woman.

Are there connections between geometric shapes, musical frequencies, and ancient ritual symbols? How do these informations affect us? Can we change our thoughts about Life, about ourselves, about relationships?

Our research is about finding meeting points of female and male energies in a different way. On cellular level.

„Never before have relationships been as problematic and conflict ridden as they are now. If you accept that the relationship is here to make you conscious instead of happy, then the relationship will offer you salvation, and you will be aligning yourself with the higher consciousness that wants to be born into this world. For those who hold on to the old patterns, there will be increasing pain, violence, confusion, and madness.” (Eckhart Tolle)

Gyula Cserepes: SELFY - special IDW edition

IDW16 has invited “SELFY”, a performance by Gyula Cserepes. For this special occasion, the author will prepare a unique version of the original performance, which will be performed only on this festival. It is a one-time opportunity to:

“When you look into my eyes, what you can see is the reflection of yourself”
/Gyula Cserepes/

SELFY is an artistic space created for self-reflection. In this open-source performance, where spectator and performer share the same “stage” in close proximity, the experience wins over “narrative”. Gyula is dancing on the thin line between trance and representation.

SELFY is a constant journey between in and out, between the internal universe and the external world – the reality. While jumping continuously, Gyula aims to become so thin, so transparent that his identity could evaporate, allowing the spectator to see his own reflection. The performer becomes an abstract mirror and having a look into it, one might ask himself: who am I really? Is my identity what I used to think it is?

Radioballet: The nature of love (extract)

The young Hungarian performance artists Bea Egyed and Milan Újvári present a highly physical, sometimes combative duet that explores the dynamics of love. The two prod and push, dress and undress, and provoke anger and tenderness in each other. The duo appears as part of the upcoming new generation of Hungarian dance theater artists.

"Intimate, lyrical, unashamedly shy and also a fun addition to the seriousness of the confession that demented state, which is otherwise called love."
(Livia Fuchs: Ketten Kétfelől, Élet és Irodalom, May 3. 2013)
„Love is complicated, isn’t it? In case you needed a reminder, the Hungarian duo Radioballet has choreographed The Nature of Love.”
(Siobhan Burke, The New York Times, December 7. 2014.)

Radioballet: Bea Egyed/Milán Újvári From the waltz to the mambo



This award winner solo, is a meeting of a body a text and and an object. "From the waltz to the mambo" is combining dance, theater, and pantomime in order to create unpredictability and surpiseness in a very personal and straight forward way. What could dance or beauty have meant fifty years ago and what dose it mean today? Do we need education?
( "Public's Prize" and "The Best Solo Prize" 2012 Budapest International SoloDuo Festival, "Public's Final Choice" Prize 2013 Stuttgart Internationales Solo Tanz Theater Festival, "Audience Prize" 2013 Gdansk International Solo Dance Contest)

After finishing his studies in the Epicentrum Dance School of Dunaújváros and the Hungarian Dance Academy Milan Újvári has been working with several companies such as Compagnie Pál Frenák, Cirque du Soleil-Delirium and Krétakör Theater.

Gyula Cserepes –The Bridge

"Rhythm is the first information we receive. It is the bridge that guides us from the world before birth into this world when we are born. When you are in your mother's womb, you hear the heartbeat and the flow of blood; you feel the mother's movement and you hear the rhythm of her speech.
All of that is rhythm. You are not understanding what is happening, but you are feeling rhythm. As you grow, there are millions of brain cells that have to fire in a rhythmic synchronization in order for you to understand what is happening around you. Without the senso-motoric system, you could not move or think or make any sense of the world. That you can see or hear something is all based on rhythm." /Reinhard Flatischler/
I believe that dance can alter one's perception of being an individual into perceiving, that as an individual he is part of a community. The bridge is an accessible, open situation where rhythm - this universal language - is the base for communication. Breaking the so-called "fourth wall" between audience and performer I offer a unique experience to the spectator: the sensation of the power of dancing.
