About the 2018 BILATERAL Artists:

 

Kata Juhasz is a dance choreographer based in Budapest, Hungary. She has been presenting her own choreographic works internationally since 2005, including: Off Europa Festival, Leipzig/Germany, Cowles Centre, Minneapolis/USA, Kunstmuseum, Holstebro/ Denmark, Vis-a-vis Festival in Romania, Prochownia Teater, Warsaw/ Poland among others.

Over the years, my company has developed a full repertory targeted towards different age groups, from the youngest audiences to the elderly. My choreographies are interactive and multidisciplinary art forms, often crossing the boundaries between audience and performers, merging live music, video art, spoken words, contemporary circus and theatre.

Recent Awards and fellowships include 2017 CEC Artslink Independent Project Awards, New York, USA
2016 Award at the ASSITEJ International Children and Youth Festival, Kaposvar, Hungary
2015 Best duet at Solo-Duo Festival, Budapest, Mu Theatre.

 
(Kelemen 3rd from L) in Waiting For Schrodinger

Patrik Kelemen, is an emerging choreographer in Budapest.  He has collaborated with other choreographers  and currently is working on a new solo Celestine,  “dealing with things coming from the sky thus addressing the otherworldly traits of dance in a poetic manner.”
He has recently performed, among others, in Kiss by Tino Seghal  (2017),  Waiting For Schrodinger by Lazlo Fulop (2018) and Standing Ground (2018) by Imre Vass, a 2016 BILATERAL Artist.

Kelemen as noted when citing the BILATERAL Exchange that there are  “growing currents of autonomous, micro-scenes are emerging within each major European city – that herald their own local circle of artists, circle of values and circle of dance- and theatre making. They seclude themselves, as resources for touring & programming are scarce. As a young artist participating in the circulation of one of this ecosystem I find it hard to enjoy or even to grasp the true diversity of today’s contemporary dance. Thus, any program that sets out to address this issue and bridge diverse points of view are valuable.”
