CONDITIONS OF BEING A MORTAL

IMAGES / VIDEOS / CONCEPT / REVIEWS / TECHNICAL RIDER

Opening night on 9 September 2014, MU Theater / Budapest, HU

After the stripped down, radical corporality of Dawn, Adrienn Hód’s new production is physicality woven into a chain of emotion.  The subconscious opens in a trance invoked by continuous movement. Splinters of sexuality, arias of impulsive gasps, a game of robust yet refined and sensitive humor, negating taboos.  The torsos of four dancers rendered as a tangling of their inner histories. A negotiation between heaven and earth, and a triumph over prosaic urban reality.
