The voice of power dominates a tribune-like space, sending rules, orders, instructions into the space. The performers exist in this space of power and thematize their personal freedom and the threats to it through performative tools.
In her new piece for steirischer herbst, choreographer Adrienn Hód explores how today’s resurgent rules, morals, and social norms affect our corporeal reality. Experimental church music singer Zoltán Mizsei embodies a voice of power that holds sway over a group of performers. In a darkly humorous choreographic language, Hód uncompromisingly mirrors a society increasingly alienated by its inescapable obedience to overarching figures of authority.
The HODWORKS company was founded in 2007 by Adrienn Hód. The ensemble works with freelance artists and is active both in the Hungarian and international contemporary dance scene. The core dancers of the troupe have been working together for years in varying constellations. The performances mark unknown, boundary-pushing directions, often dealing with the physicality of the completely stripped human body. The content of their works is characterized by a subtle movement between an abstract appearance and a concrete, often verbalized meaning. Their topics range from universal human experiences to the specific critique of the world of contemporary dance. The performances of HODWORKS have been selected three times by Aerowaves, and the company is a multiple winner of the Rudolf Lábán and Imre Zoltán awards in Hungary.
