IMAGES / VIDEOS / REVIEWS / TECHNICAL RIDER

Opening night on 21 January 2016, MU Theater / Budapest, HU

“Where are our experiences and sensations legitimate? Many human feelings or states are “forbidden”, not allowed to be shown. Art can be an alibi for all this. On the altar of art you can do things that are forbidden in real life. Thus, art is a game, an alibi of freedom.”

The abstract dance of Adrienn Hód reached the theatre of pronounced words, pronounced words. The precisely choreographed situations show up in an abstract glamorous revue. A norm-free ceremony, a communal confession with four open and naughty revue-girls showing their naked and raw personal  stories.

magic of joy and pain,
a ritual bath in limelight,
rich and loud stories of passion,
a march towards ecstasy,
electro and classical burlesque.
