ArtMenők is a youth programme of the ArtMan Association. Its aim is to bring young people with different disabilities and able-bodied people together on an equal footing, through joint themes and choices. In the autumn of 2022, they started working with the contemporary dance company HODWORKS, led by Adrienn Hód since 2007.
Their joint production Idol, creates a space where able-bodied and non-normative performers can take to the stage together, creating a world they want to live in their everyday, personal spaces. The two companies suggest that the field of contemporary performing arts may be the most appropriate starting point for the pervasive social change that has long been called for. This kind of rethinking and revising of the often strict rules of domestic contemporary dance is very timely.
The liberating novelty of the international production of Harmonia (HODWORKS & Unusual Symptoms), which premiered in 2021, is now continued in a local, Hungarian context. Adrienn Hód has been collaborating with ArtMenők since autumn 2022, in the form of in-depth rehearsal research. The focus of the sessions was to allow young people with different abilities and non-normative bodies to explore, accompanied by HODWORKS dancers, previously unknown terrains in a safe space where they can express themselves through their own choices. During the creative work, participants worked on intensive attention control, conscious body use and coordinated work with space, and the resulting performance is adapted to the performers’ skills, contrary to normative expectations, so that they can present themselves in an inclusive space, within a flexible framework.
