Contemporary Dance 1989

1000 HUF
Trafó Passes are accepted
The „Change” in Hungary happened 30 years ago. But what happened in contemporary dance that year? Did contemporary dance existed at all? Who were the key figures? What productions were made? And what were the places of dance?

Related to the 30th jubilee of the change, this unique event intends to present Hungarian contemporary dance life in 1989. Significant personages of the age will talk about ateliers, education, national and international possibilities, artistic concepts, dance techniques and surviving strategies. Selected from the Dance Archive and found in personal cupboards, archive footages are screened, which will be followed by a live performance, an improvisation game with invited guests.
