UP & DOWN – Budapest Contemporary Dance Academy in The Trafó

 20th December 2018

U P  &  D O W N

Theatre Hall  20.00

Flying low and flying high! 
Circumstances are getting worse and worse while we must work better and better.
Financial supports are restricted, tuition's value dwindle day by day, our rental has been lifted 20 %, we had to shrink school territory to half, we have got rid of everything dispensable, in order to save everything indispensable. Teachers' salary's value decreases. The world around us is more and more irritable, agressiv, depressed, vulnerable, futureless, legal, financial cultural stress pushes us
downwards.
Same time the efforts, the work and the results of the work of our students from 15 different cultures, with 15 different languages,
the work and the results of the work of our teachers and crew is
elevated.
We are U P  &  D O W N the same time!


INTERMEZZO (10')

We are  researching the strength of the elementary tools of dance.
How does a simple cross-form space order our relations?
How does a set movement material help getting closer to partners?
How does give the depth of the material depth to the attention?
How does the rhytmical and kinetic precision give a chance for spontaneous interactions?
How do the improvised space and rhytmical patterns give a chance to surprises?
How dancers can encourage audiences to find similar experiences?

The movement material of BAKÓ Tamás and the music of Steve REICH Vermont Counterpoint was adapted to site specific conditions and performed by Alja BRANC, Gaja CARUSO, FARKAS Kámea, Jerneja FEKONJA, Anita KUROLJOVA, MEDIC Ivona. Directed by ANGELUS Iván.

The original performance was created on behalf of the Hungarian Rector's Conference and the Brasilian Embassy in Budapest to be premiered in the aula of the Budapesti Technical University. Thanks to Bakó Tamás, Steve Reich, Dubéczi Zoltán, Morován Júlia.
