Timothy and the Things: Hunting

Premiere, Contemporary dance
Date: 28 March 2018 8pm and 29 March 2018 8pm

There are three boys who have gone to the forest to hunt. Just like in a tale. But what are they hunting for if only three of them are present in a sterile space? For each others? For themselves? At all, what kind of forest could we talk about at a place where not only trees but even grass does not grow? Who holds weapon and who will be a booty at the end?

Richard Dawson (UK), Mike Cooper (UK)
Date: 24 March 2018 8pm

Rising up from the bed of the River Tyne, a voice that crumbles and soars, that is steeped in age-old balladry and finely-chiselled observations of the mundane, Richard Dawson is a skewed troubadour at once charming and abrasive.

His shambolically virtuosic guitar playing stumbles from music-hall tune-smithery to spidery swatches of noise-colour, swathed in amp static and teetering on the edge of feedback. His songs are both chucklesome and tragic, rooted in a febrile imagination that references worlds held dear and worlds unknown.

For the past 40 years Mike Cooper has been an international musical explorer, performing and recording, solo and in a number of inspired groupings and a variety of genres. Initially a folk-blues guitarist and singer songwriter his work has diversified to include improvised and electronic music, live music for silent films, radio art and sound installations.


Biczók/Dányi/Furulyás/Vadas: Tatiana
Premiere, Contemporary dance
Date: 09 March 2018 8pm and 10 March 2018 8pm

A new collaboration between four of the Hungarian dance scene’s most active participants: Anna Biczók, Viktória Dányi, Dóra Furulyás and Zsófia Tamara Vadas.

“What more can be said? What more can I add to that one fact? For now I know it is in your power. To punish me contemptuously for this act. But you, keeping for my unhappy lot. Even one drop of sympathy. Will not entirely abandon me.” (Pushkin: Onegin)

Compagnie Pál Frenák: The Hidden Men
Contemporary Dance
Date: 17 March 2018 8pm and 18 March 2018 8pm

Three ropes hanging from the sky, and men. Beyond being a beautiful work about the nature of the masculine body (why is it almost never shown in the same way a female body is?), and the use of space and falling as tools of a choreographic expression, the performance is an immersion into the unconsciousness of men and boys.
The Hidden Men was awarded the Rudolf Laban award for best contemporary dance piece in Hungary, and has been toured all over the world.
