HU — Contemporary Dance

In Hodworks’ “Dawn”, we see the creation of movement.  The body is exhibited as a landscape at an intimate closeness.  The naked body is dressed in sketches of muscle, the kneading of skin, the remains of contact, the reddening of skin. What presents itself is a forgotten anatomical, mechanical, machine-like condition, an “animal character” of the body, something that is stifled and taboo in today’s world.  The continuity of mutual influence and unstoppable change create, from a daring presentation which delves into the rare moments of human-physical experience, a performance which demands of the dancers extraordinary consideration, refinement, strength, and consciousness.  Devoid of prejudice, it is that free, radical form of exploration of the body we have come to expect of Adrienn Hód. Dawn has been selected into 2014 Priority Companies by Aerowaves and won the Rudolf Lábán Award, as the most outstanding Hungarian contemporary dance performance of the 2013 season.
