Lali shares her technique and the investigation linked to her creations around the world through workshops.

I base my work on exploring the abstraction of dance or movement and I place it into a concrete situation which converts into something more conceptual. It enables me to emphasize feelings and emotions of people on stage. Movement may seem very abstract, but as humans, we are using something very tangible, which is our body. The link between the realness and the unrealistic side of things is fundamental in my investigation. As performers, we have the opportunity to play with this thin line where nothing is completely one or another, so I create it in the bodies, but also spatially. Our bodies end up being small in the space after all, but our imagination gives us the chance to go above the physical boundaries and make everything limitless. Our mind has a underestimate power and it’s a precious tool that makes everything you connect with your body become another path to research and reach virtuosity. But it takes time to achieve and actually, the concept time is also something I like to play with. I feel a lot of adrenaline whenever I see speed because as a performer, I can feel the effort and the complexity of the path that leads to it. But it has to be well managed so you do not disappear in it: to emphasize it, you need to bring the silence and the slowness in the body which is even more powerful and difficult to accept and achieve. As a creator and an artist, when you find a concept that you like to play with, it’s always important to play with its opposite. It will give you a wider range of opportunities and let your body and your mind showing the beauty of it through the most simple gesture.

Tijen continues creating and performing her own solo work. Constantly investigating and challenging her own body as an archive…Between destruction and preservation…a mission which is the sum of all influences… sculpting bones, skin, the entire cellular system, enveloping each other, intertwined, bewildered by their collaboration in time and space…the bodies never ending research within its self, its ability to adapt and survive, living within a society with norms and values which are often against human nature. Constantly investigating and challenging her own body as an archive.

Inspired by the purity and complexity of the body and it’s deeply embedded knowledge. The material quality of the body and the life it lives within an ongoing & sustainable inquiry, the ability to remember and integrate experiences are central components of the creative work of the dancer or the performer. “My aim of endeavour is to keep moving, sharing and challenging myself, defining and redefining movement to find the beauty, liberation, despite the dangers and the fear. Kinaesthetic intelligence, persistence and stacking, layering of crisscrossing wavelengths of physical, technical and mindful challenges, inner drive and cellular structure, a knowledge so deeply embedded in the body, nourishing the constant creative body. The exposing of bare energy is my motivation and questioning the internal limit of thinking as inspired by the purity and complexity of the body and the life it lives.”

A grim, physical trio that reveals itself step by step and that presents the spectator with an obstacle course in which you cannot help but go along and sympathize”;.

And simultaneously, Fernando also creates commissioned works for international dance companies: Uncertain Distance for Ballet Finland, premiered at the National Theatre in Helsinki; ‘The animal that takes you’ for the Budapest Dance Theatre, premiered at the National Theatre in Budapest.

Aiming to understand and transform it into poetic and playful productions. What can be hidden deep inside a human mind is absolutely striking to Peters Spelers’ director Fernando Troya. Fernando Troya explores without fear or limitation the ugliest intricacies of our kind. Most times, these shades are created in our childhood, a period of time when we are helpless and resourceless towards difficult situations that become traumatic in our adulthood, our present’ -.

SÁNDOR PETROVICS

I am Sándor Petrovics. 34 years old dancer and ILM-movement therapist. After my late call for dance at the age of 19, I enrolled to Budapest Contemporary Dance Academy and obtained Bachelor degree. After short period in the Hungarian dance scene, I started commuting between France and Hungary performing with Kubilai Khan Investigations. In 2015 I joined the Israeli Vertigo Dance Company. In 2018, still in Tel Aviv, I certified as Ilan Lev Method practitioner. Both in Israel and later in Germany I used to be official treater in the respective companies.

After 4 years in Israel, I shifted to the German Tanzmainz Company. Dancing Sharon Eyal’s work called 'Soul Chain' allowed me to dive deeper into the Israeli movement language, called gaga. Upon my return home to Hungary, I started blending my dancing and treating experiences into a unique movement language named '3i' that stands for 'Israel Inspired Improvisations'. Recently got accepted to the Israeli Arab choreographer’s team, the Adi Boutrous Company.

Lately I started to pair with movement my decade and a half long research of the underlaying cosmology, pattern-based understanding of reality and wisdom literature of the Hebrew Bible as well as the New Testament. In my search for meaning, responsibility and understanding movement - besides the enlisted Israeli methodologies I call the aid of my own anatomical research as well as my interest in flow science.

Lóránd Zachár was born in Budapest, Hungary. He was graduted at in 1989 at Talentum Hungarian Music and Folkdance Academy. After his graduation he joined the Budapest Dance Company, which was a Hungarian folkdance company. Later he danced at the Rock Theater, the Budapest Ballet Company, the Víg Theater, and afterwards the Madách Theater in Budapest.

Lóránd became a member of Budapest Dance Theater, after that he joined Pécs Ballet Company. Mr. Zachár became a member of the Djazz-ex in the Netherlands and later the Danceworks Rotterdam. He danced through the whole modern During Lóránd’s active dancer carrier Lóránd already have started to create choreographies and keep workshops. Since 2010 Mr. Zachar is a well-known and beloved guest Master and guest choreographer at significant companies and academies, such as Codarts Rotterdam Dance Academy, Zürcher Hochschule der Künste, Inversedance – Fodor Zoltan Company, Central Europe Dance Theatre, Budapest Dance Theatre, Pécs Ballet Company, PR-Evolution, Danceworks Rotterdam, Badora Dance Company among others.

His work is constantly looking for the meaning behind the movements, sometimes in clear and simple way, sometimes with reaching complex extremities of the body. His experimenter thoughts are mingling with the mastered contemporary dance techniques, so thus his classes are very interesting and unique. He is using the maximum physical endowments on his unique, special body-language. The often-used floor-technique on the classes seeks to experience the fluidity. Combinations and the partner-works on the workshops are characterized by the extremely isolated and self-conscious body-use.
