It Contains Hard Parts is a dance performance, which is centered around group dynamics and the individual’s behaviour in different communities. The central interest of the project lies in the socio-political tension between an individual and a group, focusing on how this duality manifests in the body and is negotiated in physical interactions.

What moves us within a group? What moves a group? Throughout our entire lives we act in diverse social constellations. From the moment we are born, each of us moves within different groups and communities during our development. Therefore, we find ourselves confronted with mechanisms, expectations and practices of group dynamics and have to act accordingly.

The piece is implemented with a young team of four dancers. Together with them we analyse diverse social situations from the aspect of the relation between an individual and the group and how it can be displayed through a composed choreography.

Beatrix Simkó is a dancer, choreographer and media artist. She graduated from the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest and the Hamburg University, where she studied performance and media art. She has been an active creator and performer for more than ten years of the Hungarian dance scene, and since 2015 she has worked in many international theatre and dance collaborations, mainly in Germany. She is an Aerowaves and Life Long Burning selected artist. In her works she engages the environment surrounding us through the expressive tools of the physical body. She has presented her works at several international venues such as Trafó House of Contemporary Arts, Théâtre National Wallonie-Bruxelles, Španski borci Ljubljana, Hessischen Staatsballett in Darmstadt, Kampnagel, Kuopio Dance Festival.

In 2021 she received the International Goethe Coproduction Fund’s support with her project “It Contains Hard Parts”. The Hungarian premiere of the piece is supported by the Imre Zoltán Program of the Hungarian National Cultural Fund.
