(a confined space, which has the illusion of transparency and comprises the chaotic system of our world, but at the same time, gives a remarkable opportunity for artists to show millions of approaches)
In the first creation of this new generational formation, the dancers put the modern world’s social and political phenomena into a visionary perspective, while evoking the nostalgia of an era that they did not have a chance to experience, even though they yearn to have done so. The flashing, strongly emotional memories make them relive these imagined experiences without having to meet anyone’s expectations, and the audience can see them in the free interpretation of young generational creators.
The dancers do not offer ready-made solutions, they do not insist on their own truth and they are not willing to play the role of the victim of our times. On this open, artistic ‘playground’ provided by FrenAK, the mentor’s only aim is to help the dancers find their own identity and authenticity without being ashamed of the fragility of the youth and the risks that they took together in order to show their true selves.
The Radkal Dance is the open formation of four dancers, who are ready to introduce their first creation, for which they used a given concept and scenographical theme.
The Radikal Dance does not explain or intellectualise, the performers communicate their ideas directly and honestly, and they accept their own fragility, just like the spontaneous senses they feel. They perform at the highest artistic level, by pushing their bodies to the physical limit, experiencing sometimes sudden, frontal, direct clashes while pursuing their own voice in the world of contemporary dance. They are proud to show their true selves without masks and unwilling to reduce their artistic skills by denying who they are.
