About
The antecedents of the piece were four site-specific performances in the nature: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Later these nature-related shows turned into urban interventions in the city of Budapest and Tokyo. SEASONS is the stage adaptation and the essence of this performance series.

Gentle and low, spiritual and profane, ancient and contemporary are all appear in the piece. BATARITA playing with her body in the way that from time to time it turns to ignoble, to man, to woman or even to an animal. Her character is the emerging instinct-being that lies deep in the human body.

Stillness

 

Premier:

18. November 2004. National Dance Theatre – BUDAPEST, HUNGARY

 Work-in-progress presentation: 4. April 2004. Mediawave Festival, Gyor

 

Duration: 42′

 

The subject ofthe piece is the “Experience of loosing” containing the taboos death and faith. Which one? It doesn’t matter which one, the essence is that something is lost forever. The audience could follow the way of the person changed by this happening, from loosing sense untill the harmony. The body led by the instincts and the lost soul becomes wild animal, floating and finally opens the way to the beauty in this world covered by cascade of inducements. How strong the soul can be in order to recover us.

There are moments in life when our whole life is gone in front of our eyes, from the most terrible moments to the most beautiful ones. The body goes dead, blood is boiling, all the things become senseless. And then once you leave. Brake and lack will stay but the soul becomes stronger and stronger and will be able to step to a new dimension, to accept and to become beautiful.
