Adrienn Hód / Hodworks - represented by OFF Foundation (Hungary), Unusual Symptoms / Theater Bremen (Germany), Trafó House of Contemporary Arts (Hungary)
Adrienn Hód is one of the preeminent voices in Hungary’s contemporary dance scene. In her works, she dedicates herself to the quest for yet new dance forms and dramaturgical principle, in a playful and often provocative manner. For “Coexist”, Hód, along with her company Hodworks, and Bremen based dance company Unusual Symptoms collaborate with each other for the first time. In their work, ten dancers deploy a disingenuous and merciless view on political and social claims, wherein their bodies move, and which form and influence them. Darkly humorous, utilising an ecstatic dance language, they uncompromisingly mirror the present age. Between empathic gestures and an ambivalent play with taboo and convention, personal history and social discourse, they confront the audience with their limits of perception, challenging them to question their own stereotypes and positions, reconfiguring their relations.
