Solitude, desire, love, physical contact, violence, power, subjection, possession, honesty, dissimulation… struggles fought by everyone throughout their life, even if maybe not so desperately as the dancers on the stage in this choreography of Pál Frenák. The tense theatrical pulsation of male and female roles, loneliness and togetherness, suffering and happiness, personalism and objectiveness call us to realise ourselves.
“The unusual power of Frenák’s style has set an example for the next generation and sent waves of liberation in many directions. Echoes of his work resound in the choreography, music and visual aspects of other contemporary artists’ work. Frenák’s art resonates in the audience too; people, hungry for his message, go back to see the same performances again and again. The reason is perhaps that this truly subjective and theoretically unclassifiable stage poetry holds a secret that can hardly be conveyed in words, yet it has been with us all along; something beyond our grasp, but the absence of which is so very familiar.” (Márta Péter)
