The choreographic miniatures mould the performer’s feelings towards life.    

Movements that talk, objects that come to life. Personal stories coming from bodies that react on the actual space of the performance and on the atmosphere emerging through the recent pandemic.

Pause. As in Morse code between points and lines. The signal is interrupted. Or would the pause itself be a sign? Here I stand on the threshold of eternity. Time does not pass.  I grabbed the minute’s hand. Suddenly the infinite and the was-no state ends. How long does the past last, or where does it start at all?

András Déri: Research on the moment in one note

Concept/performer: András Déri

Music: Mihály Bazsinka

An improvised performance with a simple structure and task for a single musician (playing saxophone) and a dancer giving a taste of the opening practice from my performance entitled “Mysterium Cosmographicum”. The first two minutes you can observe the saxophone playing one note and the dancer kneeling with the vocal cords resonating. Moving in a spiral the saxophonist approaches the dancer, then fades away. The next two minutes the dancerI reacts with a free-flow improvisation on the sound. After that the saxophone does the same and following that both merge into a collective improv observing what has happened previously.

Ádám Ellenbacher: Neon Balance

– an unusual dress show – 

Models: Bot Ádám, Györke Tímea, Kovács Emese

Downtown streets, nightlife after dawn. Light painted streets from store windows. Freshness, but clean shapes. The unisex collection inspired by the neon lights.

In these pieces I observe the layering of the materials in oversize form. They react to every motion, they reflect the light differently.

Tímea Györke: Parallels – improvisation with sound and movement

Concept/dance: Tímea Györke

Music: Sándor Szabó

Supported by L1 Association, EMMI, ‘Köszönjük, Magyarország! Program’

Using a previously planned conception the improvised music – performed on electric guitars – creates special spaces and atmosphere in the same way motion is also built on points of focus.

In this live performance – delivered by Tímea Györke dancer and Sándor Szabó guitarist – the music supports the movement and the movement vitalizes the music, this way the symbiosis of these two is shaped into an interactive poetic experience.

“Man, woman, mother, father, kid. We shift from one to the other while staying the one as well. ‘One in One’ is a world where we can try these rolls on, where we can be any or all of them. An inner trip through time and space, touching love, absence, community, loneliness, gender roles, touching ourselves and each other so that finally we can arrive at our new role…”

From whom did we get our lives? How do we inherit our fate? We get and we give something. “She is like her mother, like two drops in the sea.” Where is the end of our personality? Where are our bodies’? Or is it able to extend and reach to another person?

“She is from me, all her cells, flesh and blood, body and soul, but she isn’t Me… Then who am I?” How do these roles change throughout our lifetime? From childhood I became an adult, but still somebody’s child. And also, somebody’s partner. Who will I become when I enter a new role?

One in One is willing to show two young people’s flashback and “flash-forward”; the difficulties of the stratification of their personalities, the irony, the ease, the beauty, the magic and the real of these two people, necessarily looking through a personal point of view, with respect towards time and with humour to be able to handle it.

In the beginning is physicality. In the movements I look for connections of peripheries, release –leaving a part of the body, the colour blue, dark blue, light images behind closed eyelids. I am part of the space and it passes through me. I can be seen. I am discovering the motivation to move. There is physicality at the end.

Alexandra Mireková is currently working as production manager for several dance performances, she is also part of the organisational team of Skok! n.o. She attended several dance workshops, led by professional dancers,  Alexandra took part in several dance projects: Biela noc –Košice, K.A.I.R.,  LUPE: performance of Zuzana Žabková, These bodies: Laura Alcala Freudentha etc. She led a dance group called Heeb.She in Košice (2011 – 2016). She created two original performances: Heeb.She: Deskripcia (Description) (2015) – structural improvisation and HRA NA TANEC: NONYMOUS/Do I exist today? (2017). Currently she is in the process of researching the meaning of workshops for non-professional dancers and continues to attend different workshops.
