Together with four dance acrobats, Vantournhout guides you along, between and around a series of mutually resonating micro-performances - from solos and duets to daring group choreographies.

Venue: Kristály Színtér (régi Margitszigeti ásványvíz-palackozó), next to the Hajós Alfréd Pool.
1138 Budapest, Schulek Frigyes sétány,

Only cash payment is possible before the show on location.

Usually, a bowling ball has only one function: to knock over as many pins as possible at the end of the lane. But what if you remove this object from its usual environment? Screws, the latest performance by Alexander Vantournhout, turns the relationship between the body and the object around. Objects are fastened to the body, either providing support or throwing it off balance, allowing gravity to be overcome or rather enhancing its effects. With the help of ice shoes, bowling balls, antigravity shoes and other objects, the dancers of Screws defy the laws of physics.

You are free to wander around, join a guide, go close, consciously or by chance, or choose the angles from which they would like to experience the individual miniature compositions in the site of the former mineral water bottler.
