This Season 2020/21 we are working with four internationally acclaimed choreographers:
Adrienn Hód, Reut Shemesh and JUKSTA - Paul Blackman & Christine Gouzelis
The new piece created by Adrienn Hód and BODHI PROJECT is focusing on paradoxical phenomenons between movement, stillness, monotony and attitude. The deconstruction that can be observed through-out the piece brings together the tough athleticness of marching bands and the sensitivity of the Chopin Nocturnes.
The contradictory nature of the deconstructed performances thus force the audience to look beyond the object of their attention and observe a deeper sense.
This way the dancers raise questions on individuality and collectivity while building a piece that brings strong provocative characteristics that are not unfamiliar to the work of Adrienn Hód.

Tonky Lonky is using public confession and absolution to attack, cynically and provocatively, relevant topics from family relations, robots, human communication, and daily concerns. By doing so, distorted relations about individual's motives and a voyeuristic pleasure are coming into play.
Based on found footage interviews, Shemesh creates a collage that touches on themes from the bland to the intimate, seeking an aesthetic between minimalism and grotesque.
Together with the six dancers of the BODHI PROJECT dance company, they will re-enact the interviews in various ways, such as singing and lip-synching. The text will be transformed into rhythmical patterns and movements.
Through the plot of the work, the characters will be revealed in their fragility and powerlessness towards disasters and loss of control in front of nature and in their inability to embrace each other.
