What is contemporary dance and where is my place in it?

- The roads of motion from the 20th century till today: in dance, in images and in spoken words -

Performed by – and partially created by – the Hungarian Dance Academy’s

dance artist students (specialized in modern dance)

Director and moderator: Dr. Katalin Lőrinc

Video montage: János Lakatos

The young dancers wandering around and across continents, social classes and levels tell the story of and present in dance when and why a body moves in the way it does, what it expresses and why in the way that it expresses it, and why we are dancing at this moment exactly the way we are… We explored, discovered this bundle performance together and we update it day after day, because there are few thing more lively than dance. For all generations.

While till the beginning of the 20th century the “raw material” for stage dance art was classic ballet, the new century begins with Isadora Duncan who heralds the freedom of the body’s expression. Starting with her, subsequently we can follow further genres and styles of the century, through the turn of the millennium to this day, wandering around and across continents, social classes and levels. The young artist students performing these, who are still on their path of discovery, tell the story of how they relate to the past, to history and origins, and what they consider still valid today of all of this.

After this they present performance-portions one-by-one, which have been created in the present or are still being created either by a famous contemporary artist or by themselves, and we attempt to shed light on the correlations together: to find bridges between the past and the present. Bridges that may even lead to the future, but of course we are full of questions and we also allow others to pose questions…
