On Wednesday, 13th March after the performance Mátyás Varga (Benedictine, teacher, poet) will be talking with Jérôme Bel, the director (in French with Hungarian translation).
Choreographer Jérôme Bel has been interested since his early works in what stands beyond representation. In his choreographies, the rules of dance and theater are analyzed and eventually put into play. For his performance Disabled Theater (2012) he has worked with the mentally disabled actors of the Theatre HORA, based in Zurich. A source of distress for a society defining itself as essentially normal, disability constitutes the limit against which the category of normality runs up. Its intellectual declension — i.e. mental disability — is generally thought of in terms of complete otherness to the condition of the intellectually keen and cultivated public of experimental theater. What is at stake for Bel in working with the actors of Theatre HORA is the opening up of a space where disability is not expelled from visual and discursive practices, nor hidden behind the screen of political correctness, but is instead internal to a discourse that has a bearing on both the aesthetic and political dimensions.
