The company’s latest piece – taking a sharp turn after the provocative tone of Another Dance Show from 2020 – returns to a calmer space and awaits its audience in a clean line-up with in-depth self-examination.


The six dancers in the piece (Júlia Garai, Csaba Molnár, Balázs Oláh, Attila Rónai, Jessica Simet/Kacsó Imola, Csaba Varga) form three pairs who pay no attention to anyone or anything other than each other. Often they even lose themselves in their partner’s movements. In the three simultaneous partner dances of the piece, passion, intimacy and attraction become clear through the universal gestures of the human body, pushing verbality and alert awareness into the background. In their closed units sensuality is expressed in an abstract form, undressing all personal human experiences. Behind the almost instinctive, contingent or barely controlled sequences of movements, the spectators can still discover a high degree of experienced attention, as the dancers reach the essence of passion. By looking at the surface of the piece it might not be evident at first, but the dancers do extremely demanding work during the play so that their consciousness is filled only by the presence of their partner. They work with the inexhaustibility of touch, the memory of the body. By stripping down norms, rules, and expectations, they are placed in a state of consciousness that they clearly created for themselves and their partners, yet it can have overriding power for anyone who has the chance to watch them.
