It’s a journey deep inside. Exchange between heart beat, flow dynamic, between what’s inside and outside. Exploration of vital and original tribal and subtle suspend. Movement subjected to the laws of physics, emotions and state. Immersed in different space-time and realities. Pulsating between vitality, primordial status and status quo. Between reality and dreaming about flying. Erecting what is organic, animal, archetypal, but also directed to subtle punctures, the elusiveness of the cosmos and spirit. Trans, ritual, the path to itself by connecting with a particle of the surrounding energy of the Universe.
Ferenc Fehér (Hungary)
Dancer and choreographer. His style is a unique and an extremely expressive combination of physical dance, dance theatre and movement theatre, freestyle dance, and animalistic forms, all transformed into a distinctive dance. Ferenc’s style has been developing continuously since 2007 thanks to his own path and individual choreographies based on his consistent explorations of movement and the process of uncompromisingly perfecting his original technique. He started out as a performer at the Finita la Commedia Company, with which he produced 19 performances and won 16 festival awards. For over 11 years of his own career in choreography, Ferenc worked on 25 co-productions, over a half of them outside of Hungary. With his performances, he has travelled Europe and a considerable part of the world, visiting places such as Mexico, Brazil, India, Panama, Russia, South Korea, Japan, the USA, Israel, Iran, Canada, Singapore, China, and Egypt. Ferenc is also an author of off-stage creations, e.g. in the “World War Z” feature film or the “Amper and Juice” dance movie. Thanks to his unique and recognisable style, he often teaches during international festivals, in countries including China, Russia, Brazil, Spain, Romania, the USA, Panama, Palestine, Iran, Egypt, and the Netherlands.
