“Márta Ladjánszki is experimenting again drawing up something exiting and unique in the Hungarian contemporary dance scene. The theme, the questions and the answers brought up from deep within her and her partners demands a lot of attention.”
excerpt by Ágota Seszták

Márta Ladjánszki has been working in Budapest in the field of contemporary dance as an independent choreographer and dancer. She is looking for possibilities to show her art to people who have interest in her work and the way she is thinking on the human body. She is inspired by the body itself, the inner thoughts and how it shows visible inspirations for the human body. She truly believes everybody is different (not just physically) which makes our life richer. That is why almost all of her pieces are dedicated to celebrate the body itself!
“The body is the physical aspect of the personality visible.” – Mary Starks Whitehouse

Joanna Leśnierowska dramaturge, dance curator, writer and performer; in 2004 Joanna has created first in Poland regular dance space at Stary Browar Art Centre in Poznań ( where she’s featuring avant-garde international choreographers and intensively supporting development of Polish dance artists. Following her curatorial work in Stary Browar, Joanna serves as an artistic coach within a residency program SOLO PROJECT and as dramaturge, performer and artistic partner co-operates with several Polish and international choreographers (such as: Janusz Orlik/PL, Renata Piotrowska/PL, Arkadi Zaides/IL, Minimetal/CH, Lia Haraki/CY). In 2003-2009 she co-created Gymnastic Society (performance collective and association). In 2011 Joanna debuted as choreographer with “Reconstruction” and now this is the first artistic collaboration with Márta Ladjánszki/HU with the performance “Josha”.

Zsolt Varga is a musician, composer, multiinstrumentalist, sound and movement artist from Budapest, Hungary. Starting out as a saxophonist playing improvised music with the Budapest based MCLoecky and the Bálványos Ensemble his interest soon turned into creating music/sounds with and for artists from various fields like literature, visual and movement arts. Besides taking part in several Hungarian electronic and electroacoustic music projects like Desert Chaos and Limited Timpani, playing in a funk band, in the recent years his work mainly concentrates on the collaboration with contemporary dancer and choreographer Márta Ladjánszki as a movement artist and composer/musician and playing his horn in the best and only Hungarian free jazz big band called McRibbentrop Trio.
