Hodworks: Grace, MU Theatre, Budapest, 21 – 22 January
"Where are our experiences and sensations legitimate? Many human feelings or states are “forbidden”, not allowed to be shown. Art can be an alibi for all this. On the altar of art you can do things that are forbidden in real life. Thus, art is a game, an alibi of freedom.”

The abstract dance of Adrienn Hód reached pronounced words. The precisely choreographed situations show up in an abstract glamorous revue. A norm-free ceremony, a communal confession with four open and naughty revue-girls showing their naked and raw stories.

magic of joy and pain,
a ritual bath in limelight,
rich and loud stories of passion,
a march towards ecstasy,
electro and classical burlesque.

Hodworks was founded by choreographer Adrienn Hód in 2007. The Budapest-based ensemble regroups sensible, proactive and forward-thinking creators having their own creative and concentrated working methods. They focus on the human body itself, liberated from any mediators, limits, sets or props.

Hodworks pieces, always taking a new and progressive direction, are result of a long, creative body research based on improvisation, which appears in a strictly structured form on stage. Hód choreographies own a delicately developed, fine, high-quality language balancing between the exact and the very abstract representation. These pieces stimulate the audience’s spirit and senses and invite us doubting in the known and opening up towards the unknown. They do not compromise; they do not want to please.
