 Bilateral: Budapest/Philadelphia Dance Artists Exchange 2016

PDP is pleased to announce that Anna Biczok  and Imre Vass will guest artists in Philadelphia beginning mid-September for a three week creative and cultural exchange residency.  Both have collaborated with choreographer Adrienn Hod, who was Bilateral Artist in the Fall of 2014.  Imre also toured as dancer with Ultima Vez/Wim Vendekebus in 2009-10.

Anna began creating her own work in 2014. At present she says, I am working mainly with improvisation techniques and scores to explore unknown, unconcious territories appearing in the moment. I am obsessed with personal point of views, specific colourful authonomic interpretation of one’s peculiar relation to the world. Dance art is the most beautiful field of this exploration for me, as it needs the whole bodymind for creation. I could not imagine any material that has more stake than this temporarily alive flesh called body.”

Imre has been creating his own work since 2010 and besides being presented in Budapest he has shown his work in Berlin, Copenhagen, London, Bratislava, Vienna, Brussels. He says “I travel a lot as a performer and I am looking forward to find ways to establish myself as an international dance-maker as well. The cultural policy and infrastructure is not supporting the kind art I am representing, but it is not the primary cause I am keeping my sight outside of the borders of Hungary. I want to make art that deals with specific, local issues but holds a global awareness.”
